Monogrammed Dresser Save a basic hand-me-down dresser with fresh paint. Remove the hardware. Sand and prime the piece. Take out the top drawers and coat them with semigloss paint in a chosen hue; cover the rest of the unit in white semigloss. Add a monogram using a stencil. When the dresser is completely dry, replace the drawers and swap the wooden knobs for porcelain versions.
Goodwill Dresser Upcycle Reveal- This look was created using two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White. I tried a new technique and distressed it before I used my Annie Sloan Clear Wax. I used 100 grit sand paper to distress followed by a coat of clear wax and finished it off with a mix of clear and dark wax. I wanted this really shabby because of all the nicks and dents it has, so I used dark wax on the entire piece versus just in the spots I distressed.
