More Pink Ombré – Two Dressers and a Vanity

Okay, I told you about all of the projects going on in the garage and with the exception of hardware on one of the dressers, I am done. Now to find someone who loves them as much as I do.

Today’s post is on the three pieces I did in pink ombré… a nice little vanity and a very large dresser and a tall chest of drawers.DSCN0970I didn’t realize that I hadn’t yet put the hardware on when I took theses pictures. By the time I ran to get screws to attach them, it was too dark to retake pictures.

You wouldn’t believe the before state of this vanity! I met a gentlemen who works for a moving company and I think we’ve created a little alliance. He told me that sometimes when they are moving people, the truck gets full and people opt to leave some things behind. Usually the stuff is not in good shape or isn’t quality furniture or it is just excess from the house. This time it was stuff left in a basement and at first glance, it didn’t look like much. But you have to be able to see it and I could see it. Good bones.

There wasn’t a photo of the chest of drawers. He sold me the vanity and threw in the matching chest of drawers and mirror for free. It just fit into my truck. I knew these pieces had good bones.

It was the usual stripping, sanding, patching, priming and repairing. Then the magic with the paint happens. Here is the chest of drawers:

And here is the vanity:

There was a mirror with the pair, but it appears to have gone with the chest and not the vanity. I had a vanity mirror/frame that I picked up somewhere that with a little finesse it fits onto the vanity. Not my favorite, but it works. I wish that I could get a better fit for the mirror.

Vanity Mirror

Here is the mirror that delivered with the pieces, the mirror itself is pretty old and a bit damaged. I only taped the mirror on in case the person who buys it wants to replace the mirror.

The tall dresser was an all wood dresser that had been painted the worst green and almost all the handles were gone. A few minor repairs and the usual painting brought this back to fantastic!

Dresser B&A

I can imagine this in a little girl’s room for Christmas. I love the way it turned out. I still love the ombré style, but its becoming routine. Means I need to find another popular style. I recently ran across some beautiful styles on Pinterest that I might try. For now, this has been successful, so, you go with what works.

Thanks for stopping by and as always, Happy Crafting Y’All!
