Materials: Aspelund 3 doors dressing, 2 wooden ornaments, wood glue, primer for wood painting, white mate paint, 3 country style brushed nickel knobs

Description: I was looking for an affordable dressing that would both offer a wide storage space and fit with the classy neo-baroque style of my bedroom. The 3 doors Aspelund dressing appeared to have just the perfect size and the perfect price but looked a bit too ordinary and lacked stylishness.

To revamp it and make it match another dressing of mine, I chose 2 wooden ornaments to adorn the two side doors of the dressing, making sure they would be large enough to fit elegantly the long center space.

Before assembling the dressing elements, I glued the ornaments on the center of the doors with wood glue, symmetrically. Once dry, I first painted the front and side dressing elements with a special primer, then gun-painted them with two coats of white mate paint in order to get rid of the fake patina style finish.


Once perfectly dry, I assembled the dressing and replaced the doors knobs with country style brushed nickel knobs with a design that reminded me of the wooden ornaments design.

The result : a unique, stylish AND AFFORDABLE large dressing!
