Spray Painted Small Dresser......

Well, I did it!  Not sure I'm pleased with the outcome.  Thinking about repainting with chalk paint.  But here she is in all her glory.......for now.

Start to Finish

 
 







 

 
 
 










 

 
 
This is a very old desser.  Sits at the foot of my bed.  I cleaned it really good, and the noticed that the wood is really, well, old looking.  I've had this dresser for about 10 years.  Bought it at a flea market.  It's served it's purpose well.  Until I find something else.  Right now it holds my bed linen in 2 drawers and odds and end (stuff) in the top drawer.
 
 
 
 























Primer - 1st coat.  I put on 2 coats of primer.

It looks good from here but if I know you it will change by weeks end. I love the new knobs. Connie over at Heartwood Roses has a blog today on chalk paint you might enjoy. Love the chest at the foot of the bed. Great design!

At first I thought, "just white?"

But your placement at the foot of your all white bed and the narrow passage way between dresser and the wall - perfect choice.

Storage that blends in - knobs are very cute!

Cheers!

I think you did a great job on the piece, & I know it's hard to use spray paint on something like that. I was just at Hob Lob today looking at knobs -- love it when they are on sale!

Job well done on your DIY painting! You definitely did a fine job on refurbishing your dresser. From an old-looking dresser, you turned it into a fabulous-looking drawer. What I like the most is the drawer pulls. They look chic and apt for the newly painted drawer.
