Painted, Glazed & Distressed Furniture

Off White Ornate Dresser - Before & AfterThis ornate dresser was part of a set I purchased, including a nightstand and matching mirrors featured in recent posts. This early 70’s set is marked by funky character–and was primed with potential for a new look!

painted, glazed, and distressed the pieces in four different colors. The nightstand was upstyled in Robin’s Egg Blue and Black, while the mirrors were transformed in Barn Red and Off White.

I also chose Off White for the dresser, with heavy Tobacco colored Glaze accenting the detailed molding and ornate areas. Distressing popped out the original wood tones, and especially drew attention to the ornate areas on the top drawers and middle door.

The original pulls and hardware are a big part of the new look. They pop off the new color, and proclaim the vintage 70’s style!
