Dresser Makeover

See the dresser in this picture?



It's been sitting here like this in my basement for a couple of years now.

It was given to us and I was so happy because I had dreams of refinishing it but it sat & sat & sat. 
Here's a couple more pics of how hideous it looks.





It was in terrible condition but it's nothing that a little paint can't fix.
I found a really nice pale yellow paint in the mistint section at the hardware store for $5 and it was a paint and primer in one - perfect.

I also spray painted the handles silver, they really pop now!

Here is how it turned out!















Imagine, Improvise & Invent

Didn't know they had paint with primer included! That's news to me. Great idea you had to spray paint the handles silver--nice touch!

I love your curvy dresser in that new soft yellow - what a great color! And I love the silver pulls too. They really do pop! Did you notice that they are upside down? I think we've all done that!

Hi Sarah, that's quite a makeover. It turned out beautiful! I love the lamps too.

BTW - I left a comment on how cute and yummy you mummy can was on the other post but I keep forgetting and backing up before I see the verification word and losing it. But just so you know I thought it was adorable.

Have a fun weekend...Tracy :)

Tracy,I totally agree with you!The repainted dresser is to die for!!! Like all of you,I too adore decorating-especially redoing furniture.It is such a wonderful feeling to take something that looks outdated/junky/ugly color, and turn it into a treasure. And really, all it takes is new paint, your imagination, and you can turn these cast-away items into one-of-a-kind awesome pieces!!Go to it,Tracy,and good luck!God bless you!!
