I recently finished renewing a lovely 6-drawer dresser I found on Craigslist. The seller was offering it to me for free, but after helping me maneuver it out of his apartment, down two flights of stairs and then into Susie Subaru, I tossed him a $10.
I popped out the hardware and spray painted it gold. Then I got to work on the dresser. It was really hot these past few days, which seemed to make the white latex paint chunky when sitting in the sun. I rolled the paint onto the flat surfaces and meticulously painted all the cracks and crevices in the bamboo detailing.
Here she is in all her angelic white and gold glory:
I wish I had a better back drop to set her in for her photo shoot, but she is heavy and Mike went camping in New Hampshire this weekend, so I was unable to move it!
Before and After:
Overall I'm pleased with the end result :) I will be selling this one, since Mike doesn't like gold hardware.
Side note: On Saturday morning I found the perfect second dresser for the master bedroom. I just have to paint it white and give it some brushed nickel hardware to match the other pieces in the room. Pics to come obviously! I hope everyone has a lovely summer day. Stay cool!
