There are few things I can think of that I enjoy more than refinishing a piece of furniture–taking an old flea market or garage sale find and turning it into something really special.
Well, today I’m taking a pretty new piece of furniture and giving it a makeover. You see, this pretty little chest of drawers was purchased for a sweet young girl for her very girly and precious bedroom.
Well, in two short years, that little girl has done some growing up, and now that sweet little girl is a beautiful young lady who wants to ditch her precious little girl’s room for something a little less girly…less flowery and pastel…and transform it into something more fit for a young lady.
So today, I will take that almost-new white chest of drawers, and give it a couple of coats of this…
…and then add some fun detail on the inset drawer panels. Then it’ll go back in her room where the walls have been de-wallpapered and de-pastelified (yes, I’m sure it’s a word!!), and have been given a couple of coats of this…
…and the bed has been dressed with this…

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
