Little Red Dresser Gets A New Look

Dresser Makeover ~ Vintage Street Designs (11)

My cousin’s daughter was cleaning out her room the other day and this little red dresser ended up in the hallway.  My cousin asked if I was interested in taking it…the family was tired of tripping over it.  Sight unseen, I said “I’ll take it”.  Little Dresser Makeover - Vintage Street Designs (2)Here’s a before photo.  The fourth knob was actually inside the bottom drawer and I thought I might use them but as you can see in the other photos, I just couldn’t stop myself from getting new ones.Dresser Makeover ~ Vintage Street Designs (3)And here’s what it looks like now.Dresser Makeover ~ Vintage Street Designs (13)The back of the dresser already had this sweet wallpaper on it so I just decided to go with it.  I used CeCe Caldwell’s Alaska Tundra Green for the base and Vermont Slate for the top.  The match is PERFECT!!!Dresser Makeover ~ Vintage Street Designs (14)

I then removed the tape and painted a boarder using Vintage White.Dresser Makeover ~ Vintage Street Designs (6)
