Grey Vintage Dresser with Scrollwork – Before & After

Grey Vintage Dresser with Scrollwork ~ Before and After. Find more painted, glazed & distressed inspiration on our Pinterest boards, or on the Facelift Furniture DIY blog.This piece is a classic example of how hopeless looking furniture can take on a whole new life. And it’s showcases how paint, glaze, and distressing can make it happen!

The potential lay in the molding, scroll work, and solid bones. I also had matching pulls on hand to replace those missing, allowing the piece to retain the vintage charm of original hardware.

Painted Weathered Grey, with Tobacco Glaze accenting all the detail, the dresser came back to life. Distressing revealed the original wood tones, drawing out hints of its early days.

Part of a custom order, the piece was repurposed for a living area.
