I talked about taking this ugly laminate bookshelf and making it look fabulously shabby chic. I didn't share the update of the matching dresser, so here it is!

Can you believe it's the same piece? I know, right? I followed the same procedure as on the bookshelf: Gave it a good priming, a coat of Liquorice, and the two coats of frosty morning.

After a little distressing, some wax,

and new hardware,

and this beaut is ready to go. As you can tell, the new hardware is different. This update is easy if you know where to start. My client loved the look of the recessed pulls so here's a quick little tutorial on how to go from knobs to pulls.

Cut a piece of tape the exact length of the pull and mark where the holes are. I would recommend using something more durable than this adorable washi tape. Then drill where you marked and install the new hardware.

Repeat until all the new hardware is installed.

I'm Carissa from Carissa Miss. I love all things DIY, especially trying to make my own versions of pricey designer items. Like my DIY farmhouse table, this Ikea RAST hack, or these vertical stripe curtains. I love working with e-design clients to transform a space from blah to wow! Here's a gallery of some of the inspiration boards I've created.
