Upcycled Welsh Dresser

Hey Creatives,

Recently I shared Mama Kaos' new talent! She actually sold the sideboard and the lady loves it so much!! When she saw this beautiful Welsh dresser she just had to have it. 


Although a beautiful piece of furniture in excellent condition it needed a bit of tender love and care to bring it into the modern household. Mama K likes to take this as a challenge and let her creativity flow.



Mama Kaos puts so much attention and love into each of these pieces. I asked her about the process it gets sanded down, cleaned up and any broken hinges or knobs get replaced. Then it all has to be treated to keep the wood in good condition before painting. This was going to be duck egg blue but white seemed so much more fitting for this vintage piece. 


As a perfectionist Mama K makes sure she gives the dresser plenty of coats of paint before wax sealing to help prevent any damages. The finished product is stunning and so much lighter. Look how beautifully she dressed it for sale.



What do you think of the end result?
