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!

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hey there! You want to know more about me? Well here's a little bit... I'm the lucky wife of a Super Awesome Husband (SAH) and a mother of 3 wonderful girls. We moved to Louisville, KY in 2013 from Richmond, VA where I was refinishing, repairing and painting furniture as a serious "hobby". Since moving I have been spending most of my time designing and updating our new-to-us home, but I do enjoy getting out and exploring my new town as much as possible!
