The Taylor Dresser

I love One Kings Lane. I'm a subscriber even though my wallet can't afford them. That makes me a One Kings Lane window shopper. ;) It also provides some much needed inspiration! So imagine my surprise when I happened upon this beauty late one night. And then my gasp when I looked down and saw that price tag. $2295- Wowzers! I couldn't resist so I peaked...somebody apparently has that kind of money because it has already sold.



Can you believe that I had one of these sitting unfinished in my garage? Yes. The. Same. Exact. Dresser. 



This beautiful piece was refinished in Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in Old White and the hardware received a good Brasso cleaning. Thanks for the inspiration One Kings Lane!











Making something pretty doesn't have to cost a fortune! I'm grateful I was able to create one at a fraction of a fraction of that cost. ;)

Now, it's your turn.. go and create something for YOU!

  9. That looks so beautiful and what a great saving. That would go beautifully in my bedroom - if you'd like to ship it over to the UK I'd be very grateful!!!! (actually it would probably end up costing as much to ship as the one that inspired you so perhaps not, I'll just have to start looking out for my own to upgrade like this!)

  12. That is gorgeous! I love One Kings Lane too and have only admired the furniture on their site. You did an awesome job recreating the $2000+ dresser and it looks exactly the same.

  13. I love this. I must sound like a broken record, I say the same thing every time I come here, but it's true! I think you live in my head and see all the things I would love to have, and you make them, I just don't have your creative hand or the vision to see it! Wish you lived closer! Thanks for sharing at #WAYWOW pinned and shared on Facebook, love your work.

  14. Ok I have to admit I am a One Kings Lane window shopper as well, so I totally appreciate this makeover. Their prices are just a tiny bit to high for me. Your makeover seriously looks like the exact same piece. What a lucky find. Where was the dresser originally from? Was it a hand me down or craigslist find? Thanks so much for sharing at the Creative Circle Link Party!

    1. Thank you, Deb! I was actually fortunate to purchase this as part of a bedroom set from an estate sale.. There weren't one but two dressers that came with it! I painted the other a dark grey. If you're interested to see what it looks like in a darker color, you can do a quick search for The Manchester Dresser. :)
