TODAY I’M SHARING A METALLIC LAYERED DRESSER MAKEOVER ALONG WITH MY FAV RESOURCE TO THOUSANDS OF PAINTED FURNITURE IDEAS!
Hi, sweet #sifamily. I hope your week is off to a great start! Today I’m sharing a holiday-inspired metallic gold layered dresser before and after. I’m also including my favorite resource to thousands of Painted Furniture Ideas – aside from the #siblog of course! 😉
If you’re new to the #siblog, I’d like to personally invite you to join my Pinterest board with over 43K painted furniture ideas. It’s a group board with the most talented furniture artists in the industry pinning their creations. They generously share their before and afters, DIY ideas, and step by step tutorials. I’ll include the link at the bottom of this post so you can hop on over and take a peek at all the amazing artistry and DIY eye candy!
But first, I can’t wait to share today’s makeover with you.
I found this vintage dresser on Facebook Marketplace which has become my go-to for finding furniture — other than my curb-finds of course. hehe. It’s part of a vintage bedroom set. A vanity and bed are also included but they’re located at a separate pick up location about an hour and a half away. I’m hoping I’ll be able to grab the other two pieces this weekend so I can share them with you soon.
Don’t you love all this detail! Well worth the drive to get the other two pieces, don’t you think!
And here’s the after. I used a layered paint technique with red, black and gold metallic. Holiday inspired! What do you think?

METALLIC LAYERED DRESSER
I started by giving this piece a super good cleaning and then a light sanding. I didn’t use any primer or stain blocker because, with these dark colors, I wasn’t worried about bleedthrough. If you are working furniture that will bleedthrough, here’s a great resource.
Here’s what this dresser looked like in progress.
In the last pic, you may notice the hardware handles are MIA. Even though I used the original hardware and painted them while still on the piece, I removed them before I spray top coated. This ensures there are no drips or mess around the hardware and it’s a perfectly smooth topcoat finish.
I also tried something new with my painting technique. Rather than add the dark around the sides and outer drawers like you usually see, I darkened the middle of the drawers. I used Coffee Bean and this rich dark red. It reminds me of something I saw when touring Dundurn Castle years ago. It looks regal and old world. What do you think?
And these details. I just can’t get enough of them! This Metallic Gold really brought them to life while adding to this old world finish!
And check out these scrumptious layers!
Honestly, I just feel like putting a huge red bow around it because this dresser looks like an elegant gift!
A quick note on last week’s Dixie Belle Giveaway Winners. The $100 has been claimed but the two $50 packages were not. 🙁 This means TWO NEW WINNERS will be randomly picked so be sure to check your email and here on the #siblog!
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS HOLIDAY INSPIRED PAINTED DRESSER … OR FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE… I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.
Thanks for reading. 🙂
Wishing you a beautiful day filled with inspiration and Happy Painting friends!
