  1. I love all your painted furniture! You do such a great job and I LOVE this gloss while. I am always a little scared to use oil based paint. Was the paint hard to work with? I have some stools in my kitchen that I want to use the white gloss oil based paint. Thanks Julia!

  2. I love adding those legs to furniture! Such an easy fix. The dresser is the perfect size for your space. I’m happy you figured out a way to keep it!

  3. Oh it is perfect after, I love it made over. The before was just not getting it for me. And I love it with the shiny oil based white paint, looks really fabulous now.

    1. Just thinking about how amazing your entire house is and I just LOVE your kitchen, it is so perfect. And how in the world you keep it so sparkle shiny clean. I always always have fur bunnies in corners. I only have three fur pups now that Galahad The Shih Tzu died and only four kitty kats now that Sugar The Maine Coon died, but I still have fur bunnies in corners every single day. Did you see me turn green with envy over your gorgeous house and kitchen?

  4. it;s like the legs were meant to be part of that piece. and wow, that is such an awesome transformation!

  5. Why do people always say “DON’T paint it”? It always looks better painted! You did a great job.

  6. Beauuuuutiful! I love the light finish of it…it makes such a nice statement, and blends perfectly with your kitchen. Adding the legs to it really lightened the piece too! I might have to try that with my file cabinet! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. It looks amazing! And I’m new to your blog and love what I see! How cool is that kitchen shade and pendant light and the whole rest of your space. Gorgeous! Ok, I might be stalking your site for awhile ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Great makeover. Totally makes that piece workable in that space. Looks great!

  9. LOOOVE this after Julia. You know I’m a sucker for oil based painted pieces…especially glossy white ones. I love the knobs. It looks amazing in the kitchen. Great job babes!

  10. I love how everything is coming together! Those knobs work perfectly. That little peak of the plate wall and the cardboard deer is perfect!

  11. very nice! the legs look like they’ve always been there, and the piece looks so much more modern and a better fit for your kitchen now ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love it! It really fits right in now, it is perfect in that space. I love how warm & personal you have made your kitchen. We are redoing our kitchen right now in our 1929 home and although all of the big decisions and choices have been made (counters and appliances etc) I have yet to start on all of the smaller touches that make a kitchen homey.

  13. Lovely! It works perfectly with the kitchen decor. The before just stuck out with all the white cabinets. Love the knobs, too!!

    1. Thanks Amanda and I agree it stuck out like a sore thumb ๐Ÿ™‚
      Have a great weekend.

  17. It looks a million times better! You can’t go wrong with white. Ever. And by the way- I love the pottery you have on top of your cabinets. I usually hate anything up there but it looks really chic.

  18. looks soo good Julia!! I love how it looks with the new legs and the vignette you created is so perfect!
