Remember this pink and gold beauty?




This little antique dresser belongs to a friend of mine.  It was a hand-me-down piece that she was hoping to use for her youngest daughter.

Before she could move it into her daughter’s new big-girl room though, we needed to get rid of that gold and pink.

My friend wanted the distressed, white farmhouse look, and earlier this week I walked you through how I layered on 2 paint colors to get that look without stripping off the existing paint.

If you missed that step-by-step post, you can read it here–it’s got some great tips in it!

Today I have the full after photos to show you, are you ready?




Goodbye pink and gold!!  Hello Farmhouse White!




Can you believe this is the same dresser?  It’s no longer loud, but classic and refined.




I love the turned legs these old dressers usually have.  They are absolutely charming.






They match the turned arms of the mirror stand.






So there you have it! Another piece made lovely with a little paint.  Thanks for stopping by!
