I’ve been SO busy this year,
but the NEED to paint something finally overcame me
and I did squeeze in one little project this week.
I have had this dresser sitting in my closet for a couple of years,
just waiting to be shabbied up.
I’m not really sure the proper verbage there.
But the point is that I scored this baby for $15 at a yard sale,
and have had big plans (in my head) for it over the last few years.
Well, today was the day!
Here’s how it all went down.
I did a quick spray of all the areas I wanted the color to show through.
Time to paint!
Three coats latter…still not the exact color, but I’m pooped.
Time to start sanding….
and even more sanding…
Adding some pretty hardware to the top drawers….
(Keeping the old hardware for the bottom.)
It took about 2 1/2 hours, but here she is all gussied up!
Yikes that is really YELLOW!!
Loving the glass knobs, so girly!
Paint $13 (though I only used half)
Spray Paint $5 (again, over half left)
Total Cost $49
(or $40 if you count the leftover paint for another project)
But, I’m wondering if there is an easy way to tone down the yellow a bit?
I was thinking a tad more golden brown….
