Our boys’ bedroom was in MUCH need of a refresh!  A refresh that could very easily cost us a bundle OR cost us very little.  I prefer the latter myself, so that’s what we rolled with! 😉

  • I started off with giving his walls a fresh new coat of paint…
  • Ripped out the dirty old carpet…
  • Transformed his useless closet to a useful one…
  • Installed our very own softwood floors (watch for blog post on that project soon)…
  • Painted baseboards and reinstalled…
  • Got to work at transforming this tired tallboy dresser…


My transformation process:

  • Removed peeling veneer from top ~ quite easily with a new technique I’ve learned
  • Wood-filled and sanded chipping veneer on drawers ~ this used to deter me, but I’ve since got over that fear
  • Lightly sanded down ~ to best prepare for chalk paint adhesion
  • Vacuumed and cleaned ~ final prep before the real fun begins
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Liquorice’ ~ quite simply the most perfect shade of black
  • Lightly sanded down for a buttery smooth and distressed finish ~ for a delightful farmhouse chic look
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint ‘Hemp Oil’ to the entire piece for a protective and water-resistant surface ~ 100% all-natural sustainably sourced from Canadian farmers
  • Removed industrial caster wheels ~ so not pretty… ewwww
  • Purchased and installed new hardware from Lee Valleyone of my fav places to shop


#THERAPEUTIC y’all!  That’s what furniture flippin’ is for me!  And it’s simply AMAZING what a lil’ of my love, Country Chic Paint products, n’ some new hardware can do to a tired piece! Along w/ a fresh coat of paint on the walls, a new DIY softwood floor, a coming-soon transformed bedside table, n’ a few lil decor touches… this dresser will revitalize our boys’ bedroom just perfectly. 👌🏻
