I found this dresser at a local thrift shop, Second Glance in Gloucester. Every time I go in there I come out with fabulousness. Big time. I left with this dresser and had hopes of painting it and making it into a double sink for our master bedroom. I guess I was forgetting that our bath was about 6 ft x 6 ft in size and we’d need a shower and a toilet… errr darn it. Plans cancelled.
The top was pretty rough and there were some big holes in it from where a mirror had previously been.
But it was nothing a little wood filler couldn’t fix.
I loved the pulls but they needed some work as well.
I bet you are thinking “c’mon Jen! not another white makeover!” but look down a little farther… I threw in some color… I thought the outside did need a little color, though, for the staging and used the painting Drew and I did together.
I used the same knobs that were on it originally but cleaned them and gave them a coat of the Martha Stewart Precious Metals paint that I had on hand from this project (Drew’s vintage desk) and this one (tin ceiling in the flip).
Thanks to a good idea from my friends over at liv + grace restored I had the idea to paint the insides of the drawers a fun color and not just leave them natural… I love them this way, it’s a fun surprise when you open the drawers now!
Isn’t that such a pretty blue? It’s the leftover paint from when I painted Danielle’s dresser.
So… tip of the day:
Tell me, what were you up to this weekend? Any painting projects for you?
