How To Create A Mind Blowing Furniture Transformation

Got that piece of furniture that needs a kick in the pants transformation? Well, I’ve got the boot! Not all furniture paints are created equal so you’ll want to be sure to use a chalk paint that offers outstanding coverage and premium quality.

Now, for the reveal of my mind-blowing transformation. I say mind-blowing because it truly is. 

Some back story first – my mother passed over 30 years ago and left me a few pieces of her furniture to remember her. This chest of drawers is one of them. It’s at least over 50 years old and had some visible wear and tear. I thought staining it was the thing to do and it turned out too dark but, I left it in that state as knew someday I would refinish it once again. You can see the process I used to stain it here

As you can see, it was way too dark and really dragged my bedroom down. I am thrilled I was able to transform this chest into a bright, chic, and stunning piece of furniture.

I decided to leave some of the original walnut trim around each drawer as a detail, and I’m so glad I did. I think it finished this dresser perfectly.

I also decided to leave the original hardware intact too which adds another element of overall charm to the dresser.

After the two coats of paints fully dried, I finished it with Ce Ce Caldwell’s Flat Matte no gloss finish.

This no gloss finish is a water-resistant brush-on sealer that will leave your project with a matte, almost chalky protective finish.
