Little Dresser Re-do
First Time for Me! I'm joining the Met Monday with Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch.
Husband and I found this little beauty of a dresser at a garage sale. We paid $5! We had already found and refinished a dresser for Daughter's bedroom but who can resist a bargain! I'll post that dresser make-over next week.
It had quite a bit of damage to the top. The handles were tarnished and very outdated.
I had enterd Glidden Paints online giveaway back in June. They were sending a free quart of paint, in whatever color you chose, to all who signed up. I chose "Marshmallow" in an eggshell finish. I purchased Deglosser to use on most of the dresser, but the top had to be sanded down with an electric sander.
Reasdy for paint.
Two coats of paint.
Three coats of paint. Then I applied paste wax and buffed it off.
The little pulls were $1.29 each at Home Depot. They are a combination of brushed steel and bronze in a starburst pattern.
I'm very happy with the results. It will go up to Son's room and the little dresser in there will come out to the garage for freshening up.
So to recap: dresser $5
Thanks for looking.
