I have another dresser makeover for you guys today! I've been wanting to get this one painted up for a while. What hung me up was the fact that it was in dire need of a good sanding and that's my
worker boy husband's department. I mean, paint drips everywhere & lumps...ugh. Why do people do this to furniture?? I mean, why paint it if you're not even going to do a semi-decent job?? And the poor hardware, that had paint & gook all over it too.
Sorry guys, that's a pet peeve of mine. It ranks right up there with painting over outlet covers.
But I digress...
Do you remember this dresser/hutch/nightstand set I got at the thrift market back in May??
You might remember I redid the nightstand. That cute little table sold in my consignment booth in like a day! Guess I wasn't the only one that thought it was cute :)
And here is the dresser with a new coat of white paint...
other dresser I shared last week so I decided the bottom part of this one would go in my foyer (the hutch is in the attic in case I change my mind later) I can't tell you how nice it looks now compared to what it looked like before.
I haven't figured out what is going to go on the wall or the dresser yet. But I'm envisioning an olive green vase with some fall foliage in it.
The handles got a new coat of espresso spray paint (brown).
And now they look brand new! By the way, I'm glad I could help some of you with the toothpicks in the styrafoam idea!
I also want to share a little secret about this dresser. She has something a little special to share that not everyone gets to see ;)
Now, because my drawer isn't totally flat (there's some imperfections in the drawer, paint droplets, etc) my pages weren't going to lay totally flat. And I was ok with that. Hey, this is an old dresser. It's not gong to look perfect. I love that.
And it wouldn't be a vintage dresser redo without hardware issues...again. I'm missing several of the screws for the handles. Shhhh...don't tell anyone but the 2 bottom handles don't have screws in them! hehe It doesn't matter, that's one big drawer and you can use the upper handles til I get new screws ;)
I'll be linking up to Jen's weekend wrap up party!
