My DIY Dresser - Before and After


Hello There,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I have been busy working on a recent purchase of a dresser for one of my guest bedrooms. This bedroom is the smallest one of our bedrooms so I wanted to find just the right size dresser for the room.

Here is the before photo of the dresser that I found......


It needed some TLC so I first washed it down, then I sanded lightly.  Then I applied two coats of primer.





Then two coats of paint were applied and here is the AFTER photo.










I painted the knobs with some leftover paint that I used for my coastal painted stairs.

The dresser cost me $40 and I had everything else on hand except for the quart of paint which cost me under $15 so I think this was a reasonable project for $55, don't you?



Again here is a BEFORE photo:


 

And here is another AFTER photo:





Be sure to check back for my final reveal of my guest bedroom.

Thanks for your visit!
