Painting a Dresser

I finally completely finished painting the $12 dresser I scored at Goodwill a while back.

I am really bad lately about starting projects, almost finishing them, and then ignoring them with only one step or so to go.

But, this one is done now and that's all that counts in my book.

It's been a while since I showed the dresser on here, so here is a before picture to refresh your memory.


That color wood really isn't my style and even though it looks pretty good in this picture, it was pretty beat up in some spots.

I thought I would write down the quick and dirty version of what I did since (A) I didn't take pictures and (B) I want to be able to remember how I did it.

1. Take the drawers out and remove the hardware.
2. Wipe everything down.
3. Fill in the holes with wood putty. I used the cheap stuff and it worked just fine.
4. Apply liquid sander and let dry.
5. Prime. I used Kilz original oil based primer. Let dry as directed.
6. Paint. I used Rustoleum's Heirloom White in satin. I used a foam roller. Let dry.
7. Apply second coat.
8. Spray paint hardware oil rubbed bronze.

and finally, the step that stumped me for about 2 weeks

9. Reassemble hardware and drawers and move it back into the house!

I know that it would probably be a good idea to put on a protective coat, but that dresser really never gets used since it is in the guest room, so I made the executive decision to skip it.

So here's what she looks like now after a little TLC...


Much better :)

Very pretty. Nothing like a simple white dresser with a with classic hardware. I would love to have to share your talents at my VIP party today. http://designergarden.blogspot.com/2011/09/vip-party-26.html
