Do you have an old piece of furniture that you just can’t paint because of sentimental reasons? Or maybe you just don’t want to make a commitment to paint? I have one left over from my childhood, and I just can’t bring myself to paint it. Today I have a way of updating an old dresser without paint, and I think you will like it.
The furniture in question is an Ethan Allen dresser that we use in our bedroom. A while back I decided to change the pulls, and that small step helped give it an updated look. In case you forgot, here is the before.
Here is the in-between. There is nothing wrong with the dresser, but the look was too traditional for my tastes these days. Even though I switched out the pulls and bought these new ones., the old mirror was still attached and looking a little granny.
While shopping at Home Goods, I found a new mirror that would be perfect for the bedroom and help give it the vibe I have been looking for. It was less than $30. The mirror is more sleek and not as traditional as the original.
Now I feel the look is complete at last.
I had to share the beautiful hydrangeas from Trader Joe’s. I am loving that we now have that store in town.
It’s amazing what these two changes did to bring a younger look and feel to the room, and I didn’t even have to paint.
