Dresser Makeover

Maison Blanche Sugar Cane


A brown dresser make-over, not just paint but a new top too!

La Craie Sugar Cane

I used Rustoleum Kona stain on the top.  I picked out a table top at Lowe’s and had them cut it for me.

It reminds me of a dark chocolate.

I distressed and waxed.

I also painted the hardware, I love that you can do that with Maison Blanche Vintage Paint.  Just paint and wax :)

Sugar Cane is a pretty color. Not white, not blue, not green, just right!

    LOve the the sugarcane!! So when you say you picked out a tabletop at lowes what exactly does that mean? They sell ready made table tops?

    I painted with Sugarcane today. It’s a beautiful color. Just barely there. A wisp of a color.

    I love the contrast with the dark top on your dresser.

    Hi Debbie,

    Great job. I have a dresser similar to this to do. Sugar Cane came out great! I love the stain too. I did some custom pieces in MBPC Sugar Cane for a nursery. I loved the color too. I’ll be doing another dresser today in Sugar Cane with some MBPC Glacage.

    Thanks for the info about the tops. That is very helpful.

    I am sharing your post on my Klems Kollectables page on fb.

    WOW! Great transformation, Debbie! It still amazes me what some great paint can do (and an amazingly talented person with a paint brush ;D).

    It came out Beautiful. I wish some of these pieces are at two Woman and a Wharehouse when I come to the Bull St. location.

    Love the colors combined the greenyblue and the dark brown! Great work Debbie! I have a wood kitchen set that is a mid toned brown color stain – do you think this La Craie paint would work on chairs – that get used often?
