I started with this dresser I found at Value Village.
It was a little more than I usually spend on my projects...I know I am a cheapo when it comes to furniture makeovers...but I had a plan so I bought it. I have seen these dressers everywhere. They must have been best sellers 30 years ago.
I started by priming the whole piece. It had a weird yellow finish to it previously. It also looked like someone had started priming it and then gave up. After it was primed and sanded I painted it with Behr Swiss Coffee, it is a creamy white. I decided to paint the top a darker color, Behr Dark Cavern, a deep brown/black tone.
The drawer pulls are my favorite part of the makeover.
I found them for $2.99 each at a antique/ home decor shop. I thought the fleur-de-lis complimented the shape and curves of the dresser. The drawers original pulls took two screws so I first had to fill in the previous holes and drill new ones.
Overall I like the way it turned out. I am thinking I will use it as a sideboard in my dining area, I can always use more storage!
Linking up to a few parties!
