For Myles a Painted Maple Dresser Makeover

Hello world! It has been three years since I posted anything on here, and I apologize! During that time, I’ve experienced a lot of personal growth. Someday, I may share my personal story with you, but I can’t promise to do so at this time. If you have commented or checked in on this site during that time, I greatly appreciate you! I have some ideas in the works for continuing this site, but I will also be continuing to find balance between my family, work, and this side hustle. 

Let’s get to the story of “For Myles.” I’m an aunt again! I have eight nieces and nephews now, but Myles is the name of my youngest siblings first child and this furniture makeover was done for Myles’s nursery. 

It felt great to be creative again, but please don’t judge to harshly…I realized I’m quite rusty at photographing my pieces.

I have had this solid maple eight-drawer dresser for four years. My original design plan was for white and black stripes. I actually painted it white, so the piece had to be completely stripped. The parent’s requested it be painted in this custom blue color with green undertones (I used the same custom color used on my Ian piece). Then it was time to heavily distress it and seal it.

You can see here the top of the piece was also heavily distressed as requested by Myles’s mom and dad.

I hope to post on here more regularly, but it won’t be just furniture makeovers. Hopefully you enjoyed this painted maple dresser “For Myles…with love” as much as I do.
