Creme de Menthe Makeover

Maison Blanche had me at Creme de Menthe.

I knew I was going to love it!

La Craie makeover

I searched for  the perfect chest to makeover.  Ok, you’re right, they are all perfect for a makeover!

But I found one that was begging  for a change.

Before chest

The color was off, the wood dry, the drawers loose.

painted hardware

I feel certain the hardware was handmade.  I used this treatment to save it.

I love being able to re-use hardware and this was perfect.

drawer to basket

One of the drawers required too much repair, so I went with these.

I just measured and added a shelf board, to support the baskets.

I made little chalkboard tags for the baskets.

right side

This is one of those makeovers that I wanted to keep.

I guess I fall in love easy, because that happens to me a lot ๐Ÿ˜‰

There’s just something about a two tone makeover, a good mix of wood and paint.

    1. I wouldnt of but we do what we do. So it was the one you picked for improvement, ok Im not sure it improved it. I think there could of been maybe a diff color combo that would of saved the integrity of peace better. Just my opinion. No one has to agree with me.

    2. I was wondering what you used to get that dark wood color – did you completely strip the drawers or just go over top with something?

    3. Debbie, it looks terrific, but I have one tiny question to ask…OK, here goes. Did you make a wall hanging or something else out of the piece on top with the shell on it? I can see it hanging many places.


    4. I think this is perfect! Thank you for including the link to the handle treatment. I need that for a piece I have. Don’t you think you could find a corner for this some place? ha!

    5. Love the Creme de Menthe paint color!! I’d like to see the entire dresser done in that! The basket additions at the bottom are a nice addition.
