Distressed Black Dresser

Charlene from Finally Doing What I Love went to a little auction on her town square one Saturday morning, and came home with several fun finds.  One of them was this cute dresser with curvy legs that she won for $10.

The piece was sturdy and came with the original mirror, but it did have a few issues that had to be addressed.  Charlene ended up stripping down the original veneer, which was a lot of work, but totally worthwhile once she saw how the dresser looked with a coat of Valspar’s Satin Black Enamel.  She also touched up the hardware with Rub & Buff in Antique Gold to really bring out the details.

Now the refinished dresser is sitting pretty in Charlene’s kitchen, offering extra storage and counter space.  For more details on this project, visit Finally Doing What I Love.

  1. OMG! I have almost the exact same dresser that I’m currently repurposing. It’s going to look completely different when I’m done, though. I’ve done away with the drawers (I’ll be adding wheels to them to use as underbed storage). I repurposed some of the hardware to use for a key holder, along with a stained piece of old pallet wood. I’m adding shelves and repainting to use as a TV stand. The taller pieces that once held a mirror and the scalloped edging on top will have a wood top added to them to be mounted against the wall for an entry table.
