Dresser Makeover

About 2 years ago my mom gave me this dresser (mine when I was a kid) circa 1988 or so.  I knew it would be perfect for my daughters room.  Nothing a little paint can't fix.  At first I thought of getting new hardware, but then decided to spray paint the brass pulls nickel instead.

 Free furniture is in my budget, so I got out the paint and went to work.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, although I did have one mis-hap... I managed to loose one of the drawer pulls! whoops.  I think I may have thrown it away when I thought I was going to buy new hardware... [note to self, don't throw anything away until project is completed] It's easy to change my mind over the course of a makeover-- just wait until you see how many times I painted my bathroom in 2 weeks! (let's just say the hubster was not thrilled with that:-)).  I got some cute place mats on clearance at Dillard's for the top of the dresser. The lamp I got at TJ's HG.  Frames were purchase a long time ago at wallyworld. I'd really like to find a great big mirror to hang on the wall above it [I need to go garage-sale-ing].  I'm mostly happy I don't have to spend money on a new dresser when this one works just fine, Thanks mom!


  1. It turned out great! Did you strip it? Or just prime and paint?

  2. What kind of primer and paint do you use for a project like this?
