Updating a dresser

Here are the products I used on both the Little Sister and Big Beauty…

Here’s my basic process: Although it seemed like a ton of work to do both at the same time, it was completely worth it to prime and paint everything at once, as well as clean brushes and trays, etc all at once!

I was so tempted to go white on these pieces (because they would forever match everything), but the grey just felt so much more chic and modern to me.

The white had the potential of feeling a bit too country.

As I said, the transformation of the Big Beauty, as well as her Little Sister, were done side-by-side months ago, and I’ve been anxiously waiting to show you exactly how I pulled these modern makeovers off!

The alternate title for this post could also be “How to Coordinate Your Mis-Matched Furniture!

Her Big Sister just made her debut here on the blog this week, and she is probably the best furniture transformation I have pulled off to date!

Instead of giving you a basic step-by-step tutorial on how I painted these two, I thought I would instead show you the main five components I changed up to bring these dated and sad pieces into our house’s modern design!
