Learn how to take your old, retro furniture from drab to fab! Cait from Little City Farmhouse used Bliss, Vanilla Frosting, and Antiquing Wax to refurbish this piece into a beautiful, modern, two-toned dresser.

Hello readers!

Several months ago I refinished a retro style dresser in a two-toned finish. The owner of the dresser needed another piece in her room and wanted something matching. It can sometimes be nearly impossible to find two vintage pieces that are the same. A great trick is to use pieces that work really well in your space, and paint them so they make sense together! That’s what we did with this dresser.

I painted the frame of the dresser in two coats of Bliss, and the drawers in two coats of Vanilla Frosting. When they were dry I lightly distressed them.

I waxed both the frame and the drawers with Antique Wax.

I popped on some new hardware that matches the hardware on the other dresser, and the two now coordinate very nicely together!

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
