If you are a furniture painter, or just a thrifter in general, you know that a quality PAIR is really hard to come by! When I saw these two Drexel dressers, I knew I had to have them! Drexel Furniture is a brand that is well known in the vintage furniture industry, so if you can find a quality piece made by them, be sure to snag it up!
Another thing that stood out to me… was the lattice cabinet door fronts! I knew I could do some cool contrast work with that! The detail is amazing, and I’d say it turned out so great…take a look!
The inside panels on the lattice were screwed in and came out easily (thank goodness!), so I was able to sand them down to the natural wood! I also sanded down the top of this piece and kept it the natural wood tone as well. If you need help with sanding down a piece of furniture to it’s natural wood, or even to prep it for stain, I have a course on that! Find it HERE! The top of these dressers as well as the inside of the cabinets were both sealed with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in the finish Satin… find that product HERE. It’s my favorite top coat… it’s easy to lay down, and a beautiful solid finish!
EEEK! I loved this tallboy right when I saw it! It’s a unique size, and I really liked the inside of the cabinets… I knew this piece could be really useful for someone, and especially as a set!

The body of this piece is painted in Wise Owl Paint – One Hour Enamel in the color Weathervane. I love this product for a Mid Century piece because it has a built in sealant with a really great satin sheen to finish it off. It really looks lovely on a MCM!
Now I know you want to go paint something beautiful after seeing that transformation! Need some guidance? I have multiple courses that teach you how to properly refinish furniture like a pro… check them out HERE! My courses will lay out the whole process for you on how to restore a piece of furniture…beginning to end!
