Karen of Redoux saw this dresser on the side of the road. She wasn’t the first person to see it there, she explains, “I actually saw a truck in front of me slow down, stop to look at it, then move on to find better curbside shopping goodies. Their loss, my gain!” The dresser had a unique design that resembled cottage shingles, Karen thought.
She decided to draw a little inspiration from Anthropologie’s popular numbered drawer dresser for this makeover. She layered chalk paint on the drawers to get an aged wood look and painted a number onto each of them. Karen used new wood painted to look old and weather-beaten to update the dresser top, and added wheels to the bottom of the dresser. For an extra touch of whimsy, she lined the drawers with vintage maps. I think the newly refinished dresser is even better than the original Anthro inspiration piece!
