Hey there! When I talked about my project plans for July, I showed you a picture of the unfinished lingerie chest I was planning to makeover. This rather dull chest of drawers was used in my son’s closet for years. But, once we installed a new closet system in our current house, the unfinished chest of drawers became homeless. Never one to pass up a furniture makeover opportunity, I was certain I could breathe new life into this naked piece of furniture. Here is what the lingerie chest looked like before we got started on our makeover.
To spice things up a bit, we made a bottom piece to match the top, and attached it to the bottom to the chest. We also added some cute little bun feet to give it a more feminine look. Next, I painted it with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Arabesque. It is such a perfect pink color! I’m still on my milk paint kick…
I really wanted this chest of drawers to have a girly look…probably because it looked so masculine to start with. So, I added some hand-painted flowers, leaves, and even a couple of butterflies. The hand-painting was something new for me – I’m usually a stencil girl.
A girly chest of drawers needs a little bling, right? I added some beautiful Crystal Glass Knobs that I purchased from Amazon to finish it off. We used these same knobs in my daughter’s bathroom, and I just love them. The quality is superb, and the price is fantastic! Home Depot had similar knobs for over $4 each…I bought 6 of these on Amazon for under $14. Woohoo!
Lot’s of fun little changes really make a big difference! Ta da!! Here is our transformed lingerie chest…all pretty in pink! She is going to add such a beautiful, feminine touch to someone’s room! Yes, she is going to be sold, although this lovely lady is going to be hard to part with. 🙂
