I try not to form attachments to my rescues whether they’re furniture or four legged 🐶 BUT I’m going to have to keep this one 💕💕

I design, style and now paint. 😂 I purchased my first antique piece after randomly stopping in Gathered Goods this past summer. I came across this rough, yet beautiful and solid Empire Dresser (popular back in the 1800s) for only $65! Fast forward to this weekend...I watched tutorials, went to Lowe’s, prepped my little garage and went to work. I cleaned it up, did the sanding by hand 💪😩, and painted (3 coats) carefully along the grain of the wood. I let everything dry and then brushed on a light wax to seal and added new drawer pulls. I’m so proud of how it turned out. The color I picked (Granite Dust Grey) is beautiful!😍 I didn’t want to do any distressing on this as I prefer more clean lines and finishes but I may give that technique a try after I hunt around for more nice pieces. If you have something that you’d like to have made over, let me know! ☺️

Had to scrape off layers & layers of paint to get to the beautiful wood on top, but I finally finished this empire dresser and she’s heading to the booth today. #paintedfurniturefarmhouse

I picked up this very old girl this morning. Yes, she's worn down and needs a major facelift and some repair BUT, she'll be fabulous!
I looooove empire furniture! 😍🤤

I am sharing this beautiful lady because today she jumped in the back of car and took off to her next home. A second chance at love. She is one-of-a-kind. Her new look is a custom chalk paint made from @behrpaint called Bridal Bouquet. And, she has been #revivedandrefinished. Thanks to @finn_and_bo for this cool new hashtag. #furnituremakeover #paintedfurniturelove #paintedfurniture #chalkpaint #dresser #pink #empiredresser #littlegirl #homedecor

We’re parting ways. Keep one, let one go, love them both. Keeping the one on the left. It has that heavy, manly, Ralph Lauren-ish look. I won it at auction with much determination. 😊 Yes, It’s decided!
4 mile walk complete, I’m back home and sewing but picking up furniture this afternoon. Yay! I love the curating part!

I’ve got drapery orders to fill but my mind is brainstorming about #Roundtop and what I’m taking and creating. Feeling giddy and looking forward to 2019....😊 #decoratingwithantiques #vintagelove #empiredresser #boysroom

Amazing find number 3 today!! I usually don’t get more than one piece at s time for lack of space but I couldn’t pass up some great deals! Can’t wait to get started. #sjmfurniture #furnituremakeover #chalkpaint #furniturehoarder #chalkpaintedfurniture #empirefurniture#empiredresser

Ooh empires you always get my ❤️
Picking up another tomorrow and I still have the empire curio I'm working on too. Just as I was saying I wasn't buying any more pieces for a while... Well you all know how that goes 😳😉 This top is getting sanded and the rest is a mystery for now.

Don’t mind the snow, we are in the holiday spirit here at Rusted Barn.
This great late 1800’s piece has a new fresh coat of grey silk, dahlia, and a stained body. New updated hardware was a must.

Emmie and I (she's apparently camera shy) are excited about this one... he's had a hard life, but we're going to make him handsome again!! Any color suggestions?? !#empiredresser #elbowgrease #wheresmywoodputty #handpaintedfurniture

Fall is my absolute favorite season 🍁 The oranges and reds make me feel all warm and cozy inside, and I love that I can channel that any time I want with Mustard Seed Yellow by @mmsmilkpaint 💛

The holiday season has officially begun! The store is filled with loads of new merchandise and some great new furniture pieces like that classic #lampblack hutch by @renewrelics priced at $398. Come visit us this weekend...Open Saturday 9 to 2:30 and Sunday 9 to 1:30. #christmastime #classic #blackhutch #paintedfurniture #empiredresser #farmhousechristmas

The yellow empire dresser is almost complete! Just needs a coat of wax to set the finish. If you watched my stories this week, I took you through the step-by-step process of stripping, cleaning, sanding, and painting this piece. There’s a lot of work that goes into bringing something back to life after years of use, or in this case, neglect. But believe me when I say it is SO worth it to reuse and refresh an older piece that has loads of character and authentic charm. Of course, if you don’t want to tackle a project like this on your own, you can just buy one from us 😁! We’ve got you covered. Save the world, buy vintage. #antiquedresser #empiredresser #refinishedfurniture #paintedfurniture #diydecor #diyhomedecor #yellowdresser #painteddresser #antiquefinds #antiqueshop #vintagedealer #upcycle #farmhousedecor #countryliving #countryhome #vintagehome #fleamarketstyle #fleamarketdecor

My inspiration for this empire dresser makeover was Debi from Debi's Design Diary. I used a similar but simplified version of her layering technique to create a vibrant piece of furniture...still one of my favs! 😍⠀

I decided to put this dresser to work until I decide how I want to refinish it. It’s much different than the dresser I lugged back from PA, but it has some very cool features. I’ll talk more about it on a Facebook post later on.

Making progress on this piece tonight. Stripped. Sanded. Cleaned. And now painting. First coat looks great and I can’t wait to share the finished piece. This will be headed to the shop once it’s done. See my stories for the before, during, and after. #vintagefurniture #diyfurniture #refinishedfurniture #paintedfurniture #dresser #antiquedresser #painteddresser #empiredresser #rehabaddict #fixerupper #fixerupperstyle
