Yup. Another dresser nightstand! That makes three in our house now. Our master bedroom has two antique dressers that we turned into nightstands that you can see [here] & now our guest bedroom has a dresser for a nightstand. In our small home it’s just bonus storage which we need & love! I rescued a this little dresser the other day & right away knew I wanted it to be a quirky little rustic numbered dresser nightstand. I wanted it to be imperfect & perfect for our little cottage guest room. The guest room is in the process of being moved into our old office in our lower level so this is just one of the pieces getting it closer to being done! The dresser isn’t styled permanently & really just has everything in the room kind of stacked on it for now, but hey styling will come in time when the guest room gets closer to being done! Today it’s all about the newly refinished dresser. Funny how I re-do things to make them look old & shabby huh?
How I got the look: I dry brushed the piece with Maison Blanche oyster & then waxed with the white lime wax to seal the piece & give it a little more depth. I chose to dry brush the dresser for the worn look instead of sanding it or using another method. I don’t dry brush pieces often so this was a fun little change up. I bought some knobs from Hobby Lobby & the numbers were purchased from Painted Farmgirl. We attached the numbers with screws to the drawers in kind of an imperfect manor & I really love how it turned out. It’s fun experimenting with new paint & wax combos & I have never tried white wax with oyster chalk paint before.
The dresser is a fun quirky piece n the room & yet it’s light color doesn’t take up too much room to the eye in this very small space. Can’t wait to show you more updates in this lovely little guest room space. It’s a super cozy room & we actually nap in here quite a bit. I’m not ashamed. We love to nap.
