As part of giving one of our guest rooms a coastal makeover, I knew I wanted to paint the furniture. I debated on the color choice, trying to decide if I wanted the pieces to be done in white with colorful accents or if I wanted to paint the pieces the sea foam color and have white accents. White won out and I’m happy with that choice and with the Chest of Drawers Coastal Makeover.
This chest of drawers is one I’ve had for years. It was previously in our master bedroom, but I thought it would be a great piece to use for a chest of drawers coastal makeover. It’s a piece that my mother gave to me when she had a booth at a vintage and antique mall. The dark color hid a lot of flaws in it. I removed the drawers and found a couple of the guide bars loose. I added some new screws to secure them. Part of the veneer was splitting, so I used my palm sander to smooth it out. I had to sand the top of it as well.
After I sanded it and smoothed out the rough spots, I used TSP to give it a thorough cleaning.
I removed the drawer pulls and cleaned them up before painting them. I used the same mixture of paint that I used for my coastal mirror makeover.
I gave the chest of drawers two coats of Glidden Grab-N-Go Paint in antique white and then lightly distressed the edges. After reattaching the drawer pulls, it’s a great piece of furniture for the room.
I love how it looks beneath the seascape print.
Changing a tired, worn, chest of drawers into a piece that goes perfectly with the coastal theme of the room was easy.
The only cost I had for this was the paint, making it a great choice to stay within my budget for the room.
