What are your thoughts when you see this little dresser?  Does it look dated to you?  Or do you think it shouts “farmhouse style!” Would you notice this dresser in a space or do you think it’s too blah to stand-out?

Personally, I like it as-is.  I think the light, maple wood has that beautiful aged patina, and I’m seeing a lot more light wood show up in spaces these days.

But I think it still needs a little something to really make it special again . . .

I’m walking through this maple chest makeover today as a guest blogger at Blesser House.

Have you checked out Lauren and her Southern-style DIY blog?  She is fantastic and so graciously invited me to share one of my makeovers on her site (what??? I know!! It’s an awesome opportunity!)


You can see the full post here, and read about how sometimes you don’t need to paint an entire piece to make it special again.
