  3. ha Missy, I didn’t even notice until you told me, I’ll have the BH&G team fix it! Thanks so much!

  4. Hi Kate !

    I’ve been posting a comment on the BHG article about two-tone dressers, but it didn’t appear, so I’ll post it here.

    Two years ago, I found a beautiful tiny dresser at my local Salvation Army for 30euros, perfectly fit for my very small bedroom. It was perfect but the veneer on the sides and at the bottom was completely destroyed. I’m thinking that a crazy lion scratched it. I still loved the dresser and planned on sprucing it up later on. How, I had no idea.

    Flash forward, I’m reading your blog without commenting (I know, I know), and while randomly clicking, I discover that dresser you painted for your husband. Something clicks in my head and voilà! It took me two weeks (two years and two weeks), but I stripped the damaged veneer and painted the structure of my little dresser. I followed your instructions for the painting part, even though we don’t have the same products here in France, so I had to improvise a bit. If anyone wants to import chalk paint here, I’ll be your first massive customer.

    Here’s the dresser before (the text is in French, but photos don’t need translation !):


    And styled the best I could:

    I really wanted to thank you because it was you blog that really got me started. I guess I needed someone to tell me to roll up my sleeves and just paint that dresser ! I already have two candidates up for my next painting cession: some kind of side table with destroyed drawers, and a beautiful wooden suitcase that I bought for 2 euros at a garage sale. I can’t wait to paint those !


    (Sorry for my English, I’ve studied English for a long time but it still comes out weird sometimes)
