After a month of behind the scenes coordination, a few weekend’s-worth of finishing touches and one sneaky sneak peek, I am finally ready to share one of my greatest triumphs as a DIY-er. But look at me jumping ahead of myself…Some of you may remember what this thrifted mid-century mod dresser looked like before. I’ve seen many a creative personality tackle a full furniture makeover, but I had always been a bit scared to try it myself. I have been captivated by the look of mid-century pieces wrapped in a painted white exterior – A few looks to demonstrate this can be found here, here and here, but basically the top, sides and edges of the piece are painted white, while the drawer fronts are left as stained wood.


As for the styling on top, I tucked our television in a corner (to be hung in a more unobtrusive spot on the wall later on) and replaced it with a stack of art books, a couple of little thrifted pieces (like the brass elephant and succulent dish) and finished everything off with my brand new-to-me mid-century vase from Etsy.
While I normally cringe at the thought of painting mid century furniture this turned out pretty nice (I too like darker mid century opposed to the light). But to make this look really OURS, we decided that the Royal Design Studio stencil would perfectly provide a pop of character if we used it down the front middle of the drawers.
So this time, I went with the medium Herringbone Pattern Wall Stencil from the Allover Modern Stencils Collection (pictured above).
If you have been itching to tackle your own furniture makeover (or maybe a painted tray, feature wall or patterned backsplash), check back in this time next week to enter your name in the drawing.


Once the wheels started turning and after involving John, we devised a plan that would transform this piece of furniture into a treasure that we would be proud to show off. This furniture collection is mid-century modern with a cool fresh twist, natural wooden colors are highlighted with bright accents, inserts and fabrics.
