This lace stenciled dresser started out as anything BUT this.
I had 3 totally different ideas in mind for this piece but then this came to me, and I just went with it.
Let’s start from the beginning, (after a little paint on top and sides).
It really wasn’t in bad condition at all. The top was a little roughed up, but it had good bones.
After the entire piece was primed with Kilz primer and sanded, it was given a couple of coats of Krylon Satin Almond.
The drawers were painted white. When all the paint was dry, I took a piece of old lace I had in my craft drawer, (that makes me sound so organized, ‘my craft drawer’ ) It was in a plastic shopping bag in my laundry room… there...I said it.
Anyhow, I laid the piece of lace on the drawer. I didn’t find it necessary to adhere the lace to the drawer as I really made sure that the lace was completely flat. I didn’t want to have ‘sticky’ problems later when I tried to get any adhesive off, so I didn’t use it. I sprayed a very LIGHT coat of the almond color on top of the lace and gave an extra spray on the sides.
And just because I’m daring, I took some gold spray paint and gave it a very light go over with the gold. Then the entire dresser was misted with gold (barely noticeable) and then lightly distressed.
As for hardware. I didn’t like the top knobs on the dresser, but I did decide to keep the retro looking pulls. I lightly sprayed them with white and then wiped most of it off, leaving just white in the crevices.
As for the other hardware, I removed the tiny knobs that were there and used a couple of vintage pulls I had on hand from another project. The pulls were antiqued gold and I thought they were perfect just as they were. No paint required.
This can now be used an entry console, in a guest room, or living room.
