How to Dupe a Restoration Hardware or Arhaus Finish- Products Used

Updated: Sep 27, 2021

This Thrift Furniture Flip dresser and night stand were purchased for only $8 at a garage sale. I completely restyled them with a finish that certainly looks almost identical to an Arhaus or Restoration Hardware finish.

No, this is not a finish that I painted on, this closely resembles the actual finish that you see on Arhaus and Restoration Hardware furniture.This extreme furniture makeover completely transformed an out dated old, tired dresser to a new trendy (dare I say) piece of art!

Every step of how I created this Arhaus or Restoration Hardware finish is outlined in this video so you too can duplicate it on a piece of oak furniture. The process shown in this video, involves stripping the old finish and recreating the bleached , white washed look we all love about Arhaus and Restoration Hardware furniture.

The video is posted on my YouTube channel so you too can recreate this finish on any piece of oak furniture:
