DIY Before & After, DIY Decor

Yellow dresser transformation| DIY Before & After

About 2 years ago, I was at local thrift store, for no reason in particular, but to see if I could find any ‘treasures’  when a little white dresser with the most beautiful curves caught my eye.


There she sat on the thrift store floor, sad, lonely and begging for someone to bring her back to life.   I knew- that someone was going to be me.  I was in love.   I immediately bought the dresser and proudly hauled her home in the back of my Jeep.

Right away I replaced the knobs.  2 years have passed, and I finally decided now was the time to give this ol’ dresser a new life!


Here are the changes I made aka the during & after:
*New oil rubbed bronze knobs (From Menards)

*Lined drawers with beautiful patterned shelf liner paper (From TJ Maxx)

*Fresh, new & beautiful paint , called ‘Sunstraw’ (From Menards)

The final transformation:

I am so proud of this particular piece.  I was going to distress the edges, but at the last minute decided not to , I like the clean curved lines to stand out on their own without distressing marks taking away from the simple beauty of this awesome dresser.

This will be my very first ‘The Pink Hammer’ project on display anywhere -other than my own home- and I am so excited to drop it off at The Living Room Coffee House on Cameron Street in Eau Claire, Wisconsin tomorrrow!     It will be on display as a show piece for The Pink Hammer blog, and also for sale!  Yes, that’s right- you can grab yourself a delicious coffee and a treat at The Living Room and also buy a beautiful one of a kind dresser!!! (The very first The Pink Hammer blog project for sale locally!!!!)   THIS ITEM HAS BEEN SOLD.  See more like this for sale at The Living Room, or contact Kelly for a custom project.

I will also soon have photography on display and other unique The Pink Hammer projects for sale at The Living Room Coffee House- stay tuned and stop in there often to see what I  put on display next!
