Re-purposed Dresser & A Cabinet



I painted this antique dresser a while back but one of the drawers was broken and I thought I'd fix it or something but I ended up putting it to the side and then before the show I realized we should make it into a shelf. 



My handy man did all the handy work. He covered the sides as well so it looked nice and added trim in the front. I did the hard work of painting it lol. 


The dresser and the top drawers were painted in the gray and I painted the insides of those top drawers yellow but never painted the bottom drawer. So Instead of trying to remember what paint I used I painted it in a creamy white and the inside. 


These knobs were not original to the dresser but they are antique. 


Same with the pulls. 


Here is the inside of the top drawer. 


I found the hutch top on the side of road, its cheaply made. I painted it to use for the show for display. Its the same color as the drawer. I used BM Classic Gray. 

I can not seem to find a before photo on my computer of this dresser. It was unpainted, old and the finish was peeling. It also has its original wood casters. 



This is the cabinet I used to show you my chippy paint technique. 


I bought this from an amazing guy from a flea market who made it and more like it. He had tool boxes and wall cabinets also. I haven't seen him since. I have his card somewhere and hopefully will find it and see if he still makes them. 

The inside was unpainted wood and gorgeous...of course I cant find a photo of that either. What kind of blogger am I? 

The before

I kept most of the hardware except for the pull. 

The cabinet sold and I have the dresser in my storage now.
