What makes your heart flutter like a butterfly in the garden?  For myself… one thing for sure is a dresser with swivelling mirror and caster wheels like this charming piece! 🦋 <3


Now what makes your heart beat like acoustic drums? There’s only a few things that get my heart pounding like a rockstar… one for sure is transforming vintage-sweet furniture like this piece! 🥁 <3

Oh YES my heart was beating a hard rock tune while I was transforming this vintage beauty:

  • Disassembled mirror, and removed original hardware from drawers ~ with plans to replace with more pleasing and contrasting knobs
  • Stripped and sanded top, mirror frame and front legs ~ getting partially naked was a must for this piece
  • Gave entire piece a well needed deep cleaning ~ water and vinegar is my tried and true
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Wanderess’ to the body and mirror arms ~ “She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. ‘Time’ for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.” ― Roman Payne
  • Stained (2 coats) and varnished (3 coats) top, mirror frame and front legs with Varathane’s ‘Premium Wood Stain’ in the colour ‘Tuscan’, and ‘Fast Drying Professional Premium Clear Finish 1200 Matte Oil Based’ ~ for the two-toned look I desired for this piece
  • Lightly sanded body and mirror arms with 220 (fine) grit sandpaper  ~ for a farmhouse distressed, and sweetly imperfected and aged look
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘Hemp Oil‘ with a sponge ~ sustainably sourced from our very own Canadian Farmers! ❤
  • Buffed the oil between coats with a lint-free cloth ~ for a pleasantly polished finish
  • Reassembled mirror, and purchased and installed the most perfect complimentary set of new hardware for the drawer knobs from Lee Valley ~ hands down my favourite store for charming hardware
  • Lined drawers with a charming new adhesive  ~ icing on the cake

If caster wheels, swivel mirrors and farmhouse chic furniture like this make your heart pound like acoustic drums, this transformed and revitalized vintage dresser is for YOU! Whether ‘she’ be a dresser for your guest bedroom, a stunning addition to your bedroom, a charming entryway or hallway piece that adds a whole new level of house charm — she’s sure to be a stunning addition in your home or cottage! ❤
