Before and After - Chalkboard Dresser

Hello! I hope you all are having a great weekend! Today I finished up a dresser makeover I've been working on.

I had this cute little black dresser that I used for years in my craft studio but once I redid my studio I didn't need it anymore so it got put in line for a makeover.

Before and After Chalkboard Dresser


Here is how it started out... not bad but just needed a little oomph to make it special.


I removed the knobs and painted the drawer fronts with chalkboard paint.


I removed the top drawer and made that space into a shelf where you could put a basket or folded items. I just used some wood glue and thin plywood to make the shelf.


At first I painted the inside with cake batter white but that just stood out like a sore thumb so I ended up painting it black too.


The inside of the drawers needed some work too.


Pretty new contact paper freshened them right up!


Even the drawer sides got a little something!


It is now down at my larger space at the antique mall. Some people were already taking measurements when I was there working today so I'm crossing my fingers!



What do you think?
