I have refreshed and given new life to all sorts of furniture. Basically, if it is made of wood I will bring it home to work on. This shows in the garage, I could never even think of parking my car in there or getting to any of my pieces. I will have to do some major work in there this Spring.
This is the first time I refreshed an IKEA piece. It was one of their wood pieces with no veneer.
I had a perfect spot for it in the upstairs hallway. It is not a very big piece and was not deep so it wouldn’t be in the way.
First I stained the top with a Gel Stain. I loved the ease of applying this stain.
The rest of the dresser was paint with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Napoleonic Blue. The knobs were wood so I stained them to match the top. I love the way this turned out.
Here’s hoping that in the Spring I will finally be able to get to the pieces that are stored in the garage. The last time I cleaned the garage my neighbours came over to see if I was moving…
