Here we go! The long anticipated dresser reveal.
*I’m sure you’ve all been waiting on the edge of your seats.*
First off you’ll need your essentials: Venti Carmel Macchiato, ice water, a screw driver and Adele on Pandora.
Then you’ll need:
*Paint brushes, rollers, and paint pan
*Fun knobs to replace old hardware
And yes, I did buy a dresser with a plant hanger screwed to it.
If your dresser has deep gauges or holes, you’ll need some wood filler as well.
Fill holes and gauges. Wait 15 minutes. Sand down. Repeat if necessary.
My favorite part of refinishing furniture has to be sanding! So therapeutic.
After you sand, clean off the dust.
At this point you might want to prime, but as my dad says, “you don’t need no stinking primer!”
Take off the old hardware. Fill any hole or rings with wood filer and sand away!
Get your paint ready to go.
This color is called Cappuccino White from Glidden.
It’s not a pure white, which I love. It has flecks of browns and gives more of a creamy finish.
Paint first coat.
Let dry and repeat for a second coat.
Luge that baby up three flights of stairs.
Guess who strong armed this beast by herself?!
Add your pretty knobs.
Found these beautes on pickyourplum.com!
Stand back and admire your work!
Wanna look inside?
I’m so glad you asked!
The top drawer holds linens for the dinning room table.
I didn’t realize how much stationary I had until I started putting it all in the drawer.
Crafty business and such.
Fabric (and my foot!)
Random plates and platters that hardly get used.
Ah, it feels so good to have that all done!
