Antique baby girl dresser


Today I’m sharing my latest furniture flip:

I bought this at an auction and knew right away that
it was meant to be a baby girl’s dresser.
Within one hour of posting it, I had 3 offers.
The drawers were decoupaged in a brown and white damask fabric.
The original hardware was spray painted white, then rubbed through.
After some light distressing and antiquing, I was in love with this piece!
The top had a lot of gauges, most of which needed to be filled.
The expectant Mom is designing her nursery around this piece. 
Paint: Benjamin Moore Aura in Pink Lace, semi-gloss
Antiquing medium: Minwax American Walnut
Topcoat: Varathane semi-gloss.
Fabric: decoupaged with Mod Podge and then sanded smooth once dry.
Hopefully the new and improved blog will be up soon!

  1. I love this piece. It is precious! Perfect for a little girl's room. The damask liner is such a nice touch. Beautiful job. I have found that pink really sells, too. Every time i have listed a pink piece it moves very quickly.

  2. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dresser and it will be so cute in a baby girl's room. If I hadn't already completed my daughter's room I would totally be on the hunt for a dresser to paint pink! And I'm interested in your Magic Eraser technique. I just might have to give that a try!

  3. LOVE this dresser and the paint color is so sweet for a little girls room.
    I have some furniture that I have been wanting to paint. I don't own a sprayer. I am wondering if you use a paint sprayer or a brush?
    And which one you would recommend
    TIA ~ Chery
