“Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make. Good. Art.” ~Neil Gaiman
I love being an artist. It is my passion. I love the feelings that come along with creating and transforming a piece of furniture. It gives me such satisfaction to take something old, worn, and broken and restoring it and giving it a brand new life and a new purpose.
Last week I got an idea for this brown dresser and marched forward with the vision and the details came to me as I went along. Here is the before image of the dresser;
How I transformed this dresser:
- Sanded and painted red.
- Applied a thin layer of Minwax stain + poly.
- Removed drawer pulls and filled in holes with wood filler.
- Attached rusty license plates to each drawer, for character.
I hope you enjoyed this transformation!
