This week I took on one of my New Years Resolutions. I finally started my home makeover with a dresser redo. When I got married my husband's parents blessed us with many pieces of furniture, most of which they had had for many many years. I still have most of the pieces they donated to us including an old wood dresser and chest. Last week the dresser in my kids' room broke and instead of buying a new one I took the plunge and painted the old dresser. I have been wanting to do it for years and I finally got to it.
The dresser was unfinished wood so I didn't even sand except in a few rough spots.
Once that dried I began with the spray paint. I used Krylon spray paint in Jade. I found that I like Krylon the most. It sprays evenly and your hand isn't aching when you are done. Nice even coats, let dry, then spray again. It took 3 cans to cover the entire dresser and the drawer faces.
I LOVE how it turned out. It was so easy too. The whole process took about 2 days. I don't know why it took me so long to get around to painting the dresser but now I am looking around my house for more furniture pieces to refinish!
