Maison Blanche had me at Creme de Menthe.
I knew I was going to love it!
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.
The color was off, the wood dry, the drawers loose.
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.
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.
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 😉
There’s just something about a two tone makeover, a good mix of wood and paint.
True love for me, what about you?
Here’s what I did with the piece from the top, tell me what you think:

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.
Where are the baskets from?
They are from Hobby Lobby.
I like it and the fact you saved yet another piece of fine furniture!!!
Thank you Donna!!
Oh Debbie…I love it…I love when you can save the wood and deepening it was just what it needed…:)
Love that color. Its fabulous….I love what Shari said up above me…My kids would call it mint choc chip ice cream too..:)
You know I’m a two-toner as well 😉
This is beautiful. The color combination reminds me of chocolate chip ice cream and THAT is the highest compliment possible. LOL. Have a great evening!
But, of COURSE, Debbie! There you go again … creating a masterpiece! I love the color and the genius idea of adding the baskets! Such vision!
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?
Hi Emily, I sanded and stained with Rustoleum Kona stain. 🙂
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.
Hi Helen, it will be repurposed for sure! Thanks.
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!
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.
Two tone? Absolutely! Fabulous, Debbie ~ xo Heidi
I am getting ready to do a dresser with stained drawers and a painted case! Great minds think alike!
love! love! great colors!
Beautiful and pinned.
That dresser looks amazing. The drawer swapped for baskets is a perfect accent.
Nice job Debbie. Always love to see Creme de Menthe ideas.
