Transformation Tuesday: Kitchen Dresser
Welcome to the new segment of the blog called Transformation Tuesday. This week we have a Kitchen Dresser transformation to share. So if you pop here every single Tuesday we will have a little transformation to feast your eyes on.
This week is the transformation of this sad little dresser. Its dull, bland and sad. That knotted pine look was all the rage at one stage but now we are all allergic! This dresser was in desperate need of a whole new look.
A kitchen dresser is the heart of the kitchen! (In my opinion) It can instantly make a room more homely and cosy. I love using it to display my favourite pottery and or have a collection of your favourite cook books. At home I always like to move my displays around on my dresser and you can instantly give it a whole new look. Have fun with playing around the displays according to the season.
What I did for this project
For this transformation,I decided to sand back the top the worktop area and used a technique called ‘white wash’ it to keep a little element of the wood grain still showing. I opted for a fresh combination of grey and white. The grey is broken by painting the back panel with a fresh white. This enhances all your treasured pieces and makes the colours pop. I brought in the white again on the handles, painting the original bottom press handles (don’t under estimate painting the original hands a different colour for impact) and I sprayed the little drawer cup handles the same shade of white.
The difference a good paint job can make on a piece of furniture always amazes me. Painting a dull piece like this one can really lift a room. On this project I used one of my favourite white paint colours called Milk Teeth from the historical collection from Colourtrend and the grey is called Winters breath.
