Clean and Bright Vanity Dresser Makeover

At Purposely Reinvented, Mary Anne says, “My husband’s face contorts whenever he sees me bring home ‘another honey color’ piece of furniture, doesn’t matter if it’s free. I have been in need of a dresser/vanity to put make up, to help keep me organized. What I love about this piece are the curved legs and that it’s off the floor. He was a believer after I finished repainting this piece.”

Mary Anne lives in Los Angeles, where thrift shops abound.  She nearly passed this one by because it looked so homely, but then realized it had great potential.  White paint really has transformative power, doesn’t it?  It looks completely different from the way Mary Anne found it.  Gorgeous!

  1. Mary Anne,
    I have a face-contorting husband, too. 🙂
    I was originally thinking I liked the old hardware, but your choices for the new black hardware and hinges are perfect.
    Fantastic job!

  2. My husband is the same. “What in the world are you thinking? We do not have room for this is the garage and it is hideously ugly? I don’t care if it’s free!”

    After it’s painted… “Well, I’ll be darn. That looks pretty good.”

    Me, “I told you so.” 😉

  3. My husband thinks I’m a hoarder every time I bring something else home. 🙂 He’s slowly getting better as I churn out successful projects. I love your choice of new hardware. Very crisp and clean looking with the white paint. Beautiful!

  4. Hi Beckie,
    Thank you so much for featuring my project. I am so honored and will proudly display the button on my blog.

    I never win anything and I really, truly feel like I’ve won a jackpot!
