Finally, I have actually finished something!!! 😉
As I mentioned in my last post, this dresser made it’s way to my home several years ago courtesy of my grandmother. At the time, I had no use for it so it ended up living in the garage up until this past week. While working on re-doing our living/dining room area, I realized that some extra storage would be very welcome, so I figured we might as well use something that we already had.
Without further ado…
First thing’s first.. this baby had been sitting in a garage for 2 years, so it needed a good cleaning before I started to paint!
I learned this trick on Young House Love 😉
And now on to painting this baby!
I had a bag of sponge brushes, so I decided to give them a try and they actually worked really well for this project.
Now for the fun part. 😉 Silly my forgot to snap a shot during this process but here is what she looked like after coat #1.
The finished product:
This was an extremely easy makeover project that anyone could do with the right piece of furniture.
