DIY Dresser Revamp


BY EFFORTLESS STYLE

Years ago, in what seems like another life, I worked in a buying office for a big home goods store based out of New York. Along with carrying items like bedding, towels, and dishes they also carried bigger items like bedroom furniture. It was the time of the bedroom set, so when Jon and I first moved in together we used my discount to pick one up. It came with a bed, two nightstands and a dresser. Slowly the set has been dismantled and the only thing left in my bedroom was the dresser. It was expensive and well made so I always felt bad getting rid of it, but it wasn't my style anymore. I knew I needed to update it in order to be happy, and as I was walking the aisles of True Value I had an aha moment and knew exactly how I could update it.

I had a small amount of grasscloth wallpaper left from another project, and I knew it was just enough to reface my drawer fronts.

After taking some measurements of the drawer fronts I simply measured out the sizes on my grasscloth and used a razor blade to cut them out.





I mocked up the grasscloth on the drawer front to see if any excess needed to be trimmed and poked a hole through it to make sure my handle screw would fit through it.







Then, simply use a paintbrush to apply some wallpaper adhesive to the back of the wallpaper:

I also like to apply a little to the drawer front:

I like to let it get a bit tacky, so I let it sit for a couple of minutes before I apply the grasscloth paper to the drawer front.


Smooth grasscloth to remove bubbles. A smoothing tool or a seam roller would work wonderfully. I forgot to pick either one up so I used a bottle of children's medicine, which did the trick in a pinch. Ah got to keep it real. :)

Remove excess glue from the borders:

The final step is simply attaching your hardware. You can use whatever came with your dresser or pick up a new one while you are picking up your supplies at True Value.


It was such a simple project to turn this:













Into this: I wish I had done this years ago.





















DUNSMUIR HARDWARE

What we can offer is a “turn-key” business opportunity. A buyer can step into an established and professionally managed business and take off with it. New owners and new ideas would grow the business into new areas. We want to sell the business with its established reputation and customer base, the building, all the fixtures and equipment (computers, pipe threading equipment, custom paint tinting, tools, and supplies), and all of the antiques that are part of the image of the business.

Our antique collection is legendary and without exaggeration, there are thousands of dollars’ worth of antique tools, hardware, housewares, documents, pictures, cans, and bottles. They belong to the store and will go with it. The present owners have operated the store for over 40 years and are ready to pass it on to a new owner who appreciates how special it is. Want to learn more about this amazing business opportunity? We are open from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday to Saturday and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sundays. Come and see us we are at 5836 Dunsmuir Avenue Dunsmuir, California, or call (530) 235-4539.
