Just one of those weekend projects that took longer than expected…
The dingy dresser that needed a new home and a makeover. I have to apologize that I did not take a before picture. ‘The Stained and The Abused’ would have been this dresser’s title.
Step 1: We (meaning my husband) added bead board to the sides and front drawers. I came up with this because we had to hide holes from previous old hardware.
Step 2: I selected and painted Hale Navy HC-154 from Benjamin Moore to repaint the dresser. I would highly recommend Iron Clad from Benjamin Moore because this enamel seals and protects the wood. Who hates priming? Well, me too….Iron Clad is self priming! The paint does have a slight sheen, but very durable.
Step 3: Out with the old hardware and in with the new…..I selected oil-rubbed bronze hardware to dress up the dresser.
The Final Result= A ‘knock off’ very similar to The Land of Nod dressers selling for $799.99
