Restoring an old Wood Dresser is always a thrill. Today on the blog, I will be sharing with you my Wood Dresser Makeover for Blue Line Pizza in Burlingame.
Before & After Wood Dresser Makeover
Painted Furniture preserves the wood.
I’m always asked, “Why do you always paint everything?” It really is an easy answer, “Painting old wood furniture preserves the wood.”
Try it, you might like it! For this project I used DIY Chalk Paint and A Maker’s Studio Matte Sealer.
I found this wood dresser on Facebook Marketplace and loved it in wood, but the side of the dresser (which I forgot to take a picture of) was a mess. The wood was peeling and very rough to the touch.
Blue Line Pizza in Burlingame had an old dresser that they were using as a hostess station, but they needed a new one. I asked the manager’s what color they were looking for and they said Red.
If you’d like to see the dresser I did for Blue Line Pizza in San Carlos you can read about it here.
For this project I used Debi’s Design Diary Chalk Paint in Marquee, because I had some on hand. I do enjoy using the chalk paint because it can be easily distressed without using sand paper or a sander. True Chalk Paint takes about 30 days to completely dry and harder and therefore distressing it with water is super easy. You should finish it with a Sealer or Wax. The effect is beautiful.
As you know, I am a Maker Boss with A Maker’s Studio and prefer to use their products. At times, it’s just easier to use paint that you already have. I used the A Maker’s Studio Matte Sealer to finish the dresser.
When I sent a picture off the completed dresser to the manager at Blue Line Pizza in Burlingame, her response was, “I Love It!” I was so excited to deliver it and when I did…….
I could not resist eating there. I’d suggest you try the Zoodle as it is yummy and compliments the pizza very well.
Thanks for reading my sweet friends.
