Client Project....I sooooo wanted to keep this mid-century dresser!

Good Morning! Thanks for all your sweet comments about my  new headboard.
Hope your day is shaping up nicely!! Before I head out for the day to my job "outside" my home....haha!
I thought I would share my latest painted mid-century dresser, I just finished it for a client/friend.......I had a hard time giving up this little beauty....and I think you can see why!

I bought this, specifically, for a client friend of mine....I was in love with it the moment I bought it!.......She picked it up last week. When she came to get it, this is how it looked, "staged" in my entry.
She had a big smile on her face when she walked in and saw it and I had a tear in my eye as she drove away, haha!
My favorite part of this dresser is the gold hardware (all original), it just needed a little cleaning.

Here is how I found this dresser in all it's very "brown" glory!!! I paid around $70 for it, which is a little more than I usually try and pay. However, I knew it was perfect for my friends house, so we went with it.

Now I am on the lookout for another one of these....So I can keep it!!!
Enjoy this gorgeous thing one more time, I'm still wiping away a tear, haha!

Have a great day and thanks for coming by!


  1. It really looks great Lisa! I love the new color and the way the hardware pops now. Lucky client! :)

    Have a great day.

  2. Oh my, you're right! That is gorgeous! I may not have let her take it (haha).

  3. That's beautiful!! Can understand why she was hard to give back!

  4. Wow, it always amazes me what paint can do. It definitely took that dresser from outdated to up-to-date and trendy!!

  5. Gorgeous makeover. I would have had a hard time parting with it too.

  6. Wow! What a transformation! I love the way you styled it, too.

  7. Love it !! Have 3 similar pieces (bookshelf and two end tables) that I'm doing. What kind of white paint did you use?? thx.

  8. I hope another one finds you!! It's beautiful!

  9. I've been on the hunt for something like this - very campaign style - love it!
