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!

  1. I think it looks gorgeous!! So pretty Debbie. A HUGE improvement for sure 😉

  2. Looks just great! The new top in the contrasting color is wonderful!

  3. This is my favourite colour combo – natural wood with white paint. So gorgeous!!

  4. You did a wonderful job of this dresser! The new top is stunning and the color you picked…delicious!

  5. Wow! What an awesome transformation! It doesn’t even look like the same dresser! Love this! Thanks for sharing this beauty!! =D

  6. 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?

  7. Debbie,
    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.
    Just Brilliant…Lisa

  8. Gorgeous, Debbie! I would never have thought to have a new top cut for it! Once again … you created a masterpiece! Love it!

  9. Love it! The two tone look is awesome, Debbie ~ thanks for sharing!

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

  11. Love the dresser! What is the paint…I’ve never heard of it….guess I’ve been under a rock!? Where do you get it???

  12. 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.



  13. I think the cane is sweet, that’s what I think!


  14. 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.

  15. beautiful!!!! i love the hardware painted- so pretty!

  16. 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?
