I’m sure a lot of you out there have a chest of drawers or a dresser that’s been sitting in a bedroom for years and it’s there because it fills the space and is useful but you can’t stand the sight of it! It may have been passed down from your parents or something you found at a yard sale or maybe it was something you once liked but it’s now beyond dated. Wait! Don’t throw it away! One of the easiest and quickest ways to freshen up a dresser is by painting it and changing the hardware. You’ll be amazed with the end result and in awe that it’s even the same piece. Check out this dresser that I transformed for a friend of mine for a total cost of $58.
Here’s the dresser before. It’s a perfectly solid piece with some nice lines that needs a little love
Phase I – I used a light sand paper to sand it down to give it a nice smooth paint surface
Phase II – I sprayed/coated it with a beautiful silver paint
Phase III – I added some knobs from Anthropologie and Voila!
All it takes is a few dollars, a little time and a little creativity.
