And I feel SO ACCOMPLISHED!
Don't you just love that feeling? It's like no matter how big or how small your project is, once you finish it you feel so much better.
Okay so here is the BEFORE:
I sanded the dresser, cleaned it off, then primed...
I filled in the holes where the cheapy gold colored knobs were with wood putty
Then I sanded, cleaned, primed, sanded, and cleaned again. I measured and drilled holes for the new knobs and pulls. And finally I painted it.
I chose Rust-oleum's Satin White. I love how it looks so fresh, clean, and lovely. (White furniture makes me feel all happy inside.) Once the paint was dry I added a coat of spray polyurethane to the top of the dresser and the drawers, since those areas tend to get the most wear. Then I added the hardware that I purchased from Target.
This $10 dresser has become my new favorite piece in our house!
Paint---$5 (I used what I had on hand and only had to buy 1 can of the White spray paint from Rust-oleum)
