Dresser Makeover

We had Brody’s room painted grey several months ago. After looking at his furniture against the grey walls, I decided that we needed to paint his dresser. Josh and I chose a yellow that we liked and painted the dresser about a month ago. We had never painted furniture in our life, but I think we did a pretty good job!

My friend, Holly, painted the dresser knobs grey and white chevron to match Brody’s bedding. She did such a great job!! I’m thankful for talented friends! :)

This dresser makeover was less than $30!

I’m hoping this project has given me some motivation and confidence to paint a few more things around here! :)

LOVE this dresser, the actual piece of furniture and the way it turned out after it was painted! Y'all did an awesome job,looks great! If you don't mind me asking, what is the name/brand of the color gray on Brody's walls and the name/brand of the color yellow of the dresser?

Did you do anything before painting it or just paint it? I am planning on doing this too to some furniture and it terrifies me as well!

Please tell your steps on doing this. We are about to paint a piece of furniture and id love to see how y'all did it- everyone's opinions seem to vary! What brand of paint and clear coat did you use?

Leslie said...

Looks great! We painted a dresser and after two moves it looks less than stellar. I think it's time for a fresh coat!

Annie said...

I love how the dresser turned out! Love that shade of yellow and I especially love the chevron knobs!

Megan said...

This looks so great! I'm about to inherit a desk and I want to paint it, did you sand it first? What kind of paint did you use?
