One of the first pieces we found was this mid century modern dresser. Not only was it missing it’s legs, it was dirty, sticky, and the corners of some of the drawers we’re broken off. But for $25, I couldn’t pass it up for my own home! Originally I thought about removing the current drawer handles so it wouldn’t have a mid century modern feel anymore, but the more that I looked at the dresser, the more I fell in love with the handles.
For this project we used:
- 220 grit sandpaper
- Krud Kutter
- Old Rag
- Midnight Blue Chalk Style Paint by General Finishes
- Varethane Polyurethane
- Hairpin Legs with screws
We ordered 7″ rustic grey hairpin legs from Philly Fabrication on Etsy and couldn’t be more happy with the purchase! And no, I’m not being paid to say that. – I wish! 😉 They came with self tapping screws, and since the dresser originally had legs, the base of the dresser was already ready for legs. We simply just screwed the legs on! Wahoo!
