Chevron Dresser Restyled and Revealed

Hello! Some of you may have been following us along on Facebook or Instagram - if you have, you will know that I have been working away on another custom restyled dresser. This 9 drawer dresser was handed down the family line when it came to rest in my customers spare bedroom. With an idea for the type of look she wanted to create, my customer brought in the dresser with an inspiration picture which she found on Pinterest and came from this post over at 'A Little Glass Box'.

I loved the idea my customer was going for and was excited to tackle a chevron patterned dresser! We collaborated on colours in the Miss Mustard Seed Milk paint line and decided on using 'grain sack' overall with a 'mustard seed yellow' chevron pattern for 6 of the nine drawers.

I think it turned out really beautiful. I love the colour, I love the pattern and I love the minimal amount of distressing that was applied before the hemp oil finish. This dresser will go back in the spare bedroom of my customers home for now and it will look stunning up against the grey walls and on the hardwood floors . . . and if in the future that spare bedroom happens to transition into a nursery, well this cute (and gender neutral) dresser will fit quite nicely in that space as well :)

 This dresser has recessed handles built right into the drawer fronts, which means we didn't need to add any hardware that would have distracted from the design.

Here's how we got there. A short slideshow of the 'how to', showing the dresser as it arrived, after being sanded cleaned and prepped, the first overall coats of milk paint, the taping out of the chevron pattern and the final product.
