Mid Century Modern Makeover

Mid Century Modern Makeover using #ChalkPaint and #Weatherwoodstains on #fg2b

Hello, Ya'll! That is getting easier and easier to say now that I'm down in the south. Though when I say it here, everyone looks at me like I'm not from here. Ever wanna take something old and make it new? Better yet, make it modern? I seriously like the way things are going with the 70's mid century modern. Though I hate having to say it like that. Can't we just condense it to midmod? Or Centmod? #mod?
Anyways, here's a mid century modern dresser makeover by the talented Krizia, from Oak and Olive.  Krizia always does a wonderful job giving life to vintage furniture. I thought she did a beautiful job pairing this mid century piece with a Weatherwood stained drawer fronts.

To get this look, you'll want to paint the frame in a light, linen white. The frame's edges are very lightly distressed. Krizia says she left the legs au-natural. Of course the drawer fronts she sanded and stained with Weatherwood's Reclamation stain. to the get that warm wood with a hint of gray.

This piece turned out so beautiful and it's no longer for sale. Krizia does have several other pieces for sale on her Etsy page. I love Krizia's geometric take on on old pieces.
