Heidi from Lily Field Furniture turned an old, beat up dresser into a simplistic storage piece for her client’s living room with Vanilla Frosting. Come see it now!

Hello there! I’m about to show you a before picture that I realize will probably raise some eyebrows. I know what your first thought may be- WHY did she paint that?!

I promise you the before picture is deceiving and shows how filters can make things look way better than they really are in person! The piece needed a lot of TLC and some hefty scratches prevented me from refinishing.

My client just moved into a new home and wanted to use this piece as a storage unit for DVD’s and entertainment storage. We decided on Vanilla Frosting, a subtle creamy white for the paint color. I knew just from looking at the piece that I was likely going to deal with bleed through issues and so I decided to spray with 2 coats of shellac based primer to avoid a later headache. After painting 1 coat of Vanilla Frosting I sealed with Top Coat for extra durability and changed out the hardware.

A super simple, updated look in classic white. You can’t go wrong!
