Don’t let water marks and peeling veneers get you down! Come and see how Carrie from Thirty Eighth Street transformed this dresser from beast to beauty with Rocky Mountain and Tough Coat.

I don’t normally look for furniture at garage sales. But, I happened upon an advertisement with pictures of a stately dresser. The asking price was so low, it was pure robbery! I inspected the piece thoroughly. All of the drawers opened and closed nicely, it was structurally sound, and it had all of its hardware.. what a bonus! Don’t let me fool you. It wasn’t all roses and cherries. The top of the dresser was in pretty sad shape. It had water marks, gouges and peeling veneer.

All of these signs of wear and tear were just too much work for the seller. Enough so that they decided to sell this nice piece of furniture for a rock bottom price! What a score!

What the seller didn’t know was just how easy it was to sand down the top of the dresser. Add some gorgeous Rocky Mountain Furniture & Home Decor Paint and you have a practically new dresser!

This is my first time trying Country Chic Paint’s Rocky Mountain paint color. It’s simply gorgeous! A real warm deep grey with blue undertones. The dresser makeover was so fun to work on and is another testament that a little bit of blood, sweat and NO tears …and paint goes a long way!

Tough Coat was applied after 24 hours and gave this piece a subtle sheen to it. We are in love with our garage sale find!

Carrie {Thirty Eighth Street}

Hi! I’m Carrie from sunny Southern Arizona and blogger at Thirty Eighth Street. I live in a house full of rumble tumble boys and paint is my nail polish. I love the process of repurposing, reusing and recycling unloved furniture and turning them into show stopper pieces. I’m a firm believer that it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to decorate a home. My mission is to demonstrate this, one piece at a time!
