Guest Room Dresser Makeover

June 22, 2010

I am not 100% done with the guest room.  I still have the art wall to finish and the painting of the chandy. However, I can share the dresser makeover! Woo Hoo!

The piece came via the WANT ADs at work.  I actually have a “dealer” there who sold me Grand Slam’s bed.   Here is a picture of the before taken with her phone:

And After!

I sanded it down to pretty much the bare wood (the sander is my new favorite tool).  I applied one coat of primer, three coats of Martha Stewart’s Bakery Box White (lesson: don’t use a gray primer with a light paint!).  Then, I finished it off with three coats of poly acrylic.

I spray painted the original hardware in a hammered bronze, but couldn’t get past the colonial shape.  So, I just picked up a few of these art-deco/South Beach knobs at HD.

Here it sits with my $2.50 Bamboo tray on top (Goodwill find!) and some storage boxes from IKEA.

And my favorite…the $29 mirror from Home Goods.  Rock it.

Only 3, 486 more projects to go. wooo hoooooooo…..

    Awesome! I’m looking to sand and paint ALL my bedroom furniture, wondering what color though… like that you mentioned Martha Stewart’s Bakery Box White.

    WOW! the hardware was a great find, I definitely haven’t seen those at my Home Depot. You have a wonderful eye for decorating, all the details look right out of a magazine!

    Can’t wait to see more projects on future Fresh Coat Fridays!!
