Beautiful Turquoise Dresser Update

This dresser is not the style I would usually pick out, but I did and I am so glad of that now! The drawers were a little wobbly, the legs were loose and the top had some stains but other than that it was in very good shape!



Well hello bright and gorgeous! The drawers were easily fixed, it just had some loose parts and the legs were bolted on so a little tightening of those and the dresser was good to go! My SAH (Super Awesome Hubby) picked out the color, I think he picked the perfect one! This is Santa Fe Turquoise, a CeCe Caldwell paint color…

The paint went on beautifully and was super easy to distress with warm water and a scrub sponge…

I love the way the handles are built into the drawers… no changing out these handles (not that I would)!


I sprayed the handles in a flat white to really make them POP!


The top is now smooth and lovely after a coat of clear wax and a nice buff with 0000 steel wool.


I have this Queen sized headboard that we painted the same color, just in case someone wants a “set”. The headboard has lots of great details and is unique for sure!

Wouldn’t they look great together?!

I think this could also be a cool buffet of TV cabinet… I don’t know why but think the dressers that have more of a clean / modern shape (no curves) translate better to other uses… but maybe I’m just crazy Smile

Hope you like this piece, I’m sure someone will find just the right place for it!

See you soon!

  1. I don’t have anything in my house that color – but I want to do something in that hue. Love it. Guess I’d have to sell it.

    Hope you will visit me. I have a project up on My Romantic Home as well (a mini Swedish Clock makeover).



  2. I bumped into your blog yesterday looking for my perfect blue dresser/buffet. You do wonderful work and have so much sense and fun using colors!
