This has been my project for the last couple of days!
I have wanted to change the decor in our guest room to more of a beach theme. But the bureau in that room was this big dark piece of furniture -not beachy at all. I painted the bottom half a gray, white.
I sanded down the drawers and then stained with MinWax a pecan color. That was time consuming but fun!
The top was a challenge too. I decided to decoupage the top with a map. My sister, Connie had given me several old maps that I loved. The colors were perfect for the top! Connie helped me add the map to the top! Wow, that was a job trying to get out all the air bubbles! It was a 2 person job for sure!
I love the result! I am still putting the layers of poly on it but it is looking good! This will add a little nautical feel to the room! I sanded the edges to give it a little bit of a used look. I also changed out the knobs for the top of the bureau-but still looking for new draw pulls for the bottom half! With that done- I am headed back into my Studio for some more fun!
The pictures really don't do it justice. The bureau is gorgeous. Wish everyone could see it in person. I am inspired, but with moving and all my ideas will have to wait awhile. Thanks for the inspiration as always great ideas.ReplyDelete

You and Connie did a fantastic job remodeling your dresser! What a transformation. I love the map idea for the top. Wish I had someone to decorate with.
Love it. Great job.ReplyDelete
