Renewed Little Dresser

This little dresser was in Husband's Grandmother's apartment that we helped clean out last December. She went home to be with the Lord on New Year's Day. This weekend while Husband was out of the state, I took the opportunity to refinish the dresser. This is the finished look.

I'm linking with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday.

I thought I'd join Cassie at Primitive and Proper for Piece of Work Wednesday.  Check out some of the great furniture makeovers

Here is the before picture.  It was very dirty and someone had painted right over the handles and everything at one time.

I took the handles off and scrubbed them with a cleaning brush and most of the paint came right off.  The dresser itself got a scrub with spray cleaner and a damp cloth.

Here are the revamped handles back on the dresser.

I spray painted them so the color would be even all over.  I would have liked a darker color, but this works.

And for once, I went a little crazy!  I painted the inside of the drawers a buttery yellow.   This is the main paint that was on my daughters walls for many years.  It's very bold.

I like the way it turned out.  I'm thinking of putting it im my bedroom.  I ready to replace the black furniture with white.

Thanks for stopping by.
