Fab Furniture Flippin’ Dresser Makeover

Hi friends!

Reinvented is broadcasting LIVE this evening, from Starbucks in Pickerington, Ohio.  :)

My sweet 16 daughter is at Drivers’ Ed class, so I’m working away in my fave coffee shop.

Except I don’t drink coffee.

Anywhoo, I’m excited to share with you my entry in this month’s Fab Furniture Flippin’ contest.  Our sponsor this month is D Lawless Hardware,  and the theme is Icing on the Cake.  And that makes me happy because?

I {heart} hardware.

And cake.



My idea for this month was to add some “icing” to this plain dresser in our family room.

This plain Jane three drawer chest is essential storage for a family of 6.  We keep candles, movies and blankets here.

I tried to jazz it up once by painting the plain hardware aqua, but it just didn’t make my heart sing.

After a little shopping on the D Lawless site, I had the perfect icing for this plain vanilla cake.

I chose this pewter knob, loving the aged look.




And this ceramic back plate.  It reminds me of vintage ironware.




These two are perfect for an industrial farmhouse look.  Which I LOVE.  But…

a girl’s gotta have stripes.  Those flat drawer fronts were perfect for my favorite pattern of. all. time.

I am diggin’ the contrast between the dark gray stripe, white ceramic, and aged pewter knobs.

The genius says they look like “googly eyes.”

That is SO not the look I was going for.

This was a crazy quick dresser makeover, my favorite kind.

Disclosure:  I received complimentary hardware from D Lawless, but my love for hardware, this company, and stripes is 100% my own.  No one else would claim it.  ;)

If you love this dresser makeover, I’d love YOU if you would Pin it!  Thanks so much!
