Dresser Makeover!


I got an itch to spruce up my living room. I've been wanting to paint this dresser, which has been mine since I was 15.  We use it as a TV stand. 

I also wanted our coffee table to match! 

First I remove all hardware. 
Then I started by using my husbands electric  sander and lightly sanded them both. 

Then I used a primer. 

It went on smooth and clear on the dresser but thick and white on the coffee table. Hmph. I was perplexed! 

I let the primer dry, then I sanded the coffee table again. 

Then I painted them both! Here's the secret!!! I used a roller over all of it except the small corners & edges. 

I used two coats of Valspar "Quarry Pond". One quart was more than enough for both. 

Dresser makeover!

We're about to repaint our kitchen, and that's about the color it's going to be. :) It's a paler version of that now. Anyway, I love it! Looks so awesome. I am always scared I won't sand my furniture right or something and horribly ruin it. Look at you, breastfeeding AND redoing furniture! Lol
