John Deere Dresser Gets a Classy Makeover!

Abbey from Painted Home Goods gave this old John Deere dresser with grimy, chipping paint a classy new makeover with Liquorice and Hemp Oil to create a smooth, professional finish!

I apologize to anyone who might like this John Deere makeover (my husband loved it) but it had to go.

Someone had a creative vision but the paint was wearing off. Everything was grimy. And I didn’t think it was the right look for such a sweet little dresser. So I got those headlights unbolted and took the keyhole out of the bottom. With those holes patched, I was ready to sand. And sand. And sand some more. Then clean and sand again.

After a coat of Country Chic Paint’s Clear Bonding Primer, I was finally ready for the fun part! For a classic, timeless look I chose the color, Liquorice. Sealed with Hemp Oil for a soft sheen and finished with vintage style ceramic knobs, this sweet little dresser looks like a million bucks.
