Awesome Dresser Makeover

My lovely daughter wanted a beach theme for you home. So, I put my thinking hat on and spent a few hours in hobby lobby. I noted that this dresser had a ton of pulls and handles on it. I would prefer to keep this under budget because that is why we are actually re-doing furniture, correct??

So, I purchased the cute draw pulls at the top and chalk painted them white. Then I purchased cheaper metal handles and wrapped them in rope. Next I purchased nautical rope from Michaels and made my own handles! Here I am testing it out to see if it would even work…

Notice I wrapped tape around the end of the rope so that I can thread it easier. VERY EASY!

I then filled the holes on my old dresser with caulking and sanded it down.

Chalk painted with Old White Anne Sloan paint and Provence. After two coats of paint, I buffed on clear wax. Anchored to the wall and here it is!!

Turned out perfect!! Let me know what you think….
