Dress that dresser up...

We are at an end of re-doing the furniture for my daughter's room...the fun of decorating it now begins...she should be home in a week (I'm thinking she likes being gone)...I haven't seen her since the middle of May :(
(I will be singing a different tune when she gets home...how long will sweet 16 last???)

I decided to paint her white dresser black to match the daybed makeover...kids are so hard on their furniture and not to mention alot of moving doesn't help...

I went out to the garage to see what I had handy and I'm in business...

Well let me tell you....Live and learn!!! I would not use this paint on anything ever again...it was THICK and would not dry for a shit crap...

But...I managed to get it done I just had to wait 3 days for it to dry...I just need the dresser to last 2 more years...I do think the black paint (as much as a pain as it was) turned out good...
(note to self: find some better paint next time)

Now I'm ready to put the knobs back on....I had bought the silver knobs a couple years ago when I painted the dresser white so I'm keeping them...they look great against the black...I even had to add this cute little lamp I got at the dollar tree for $5...

Now the big dresser reveal...

Wait for it...

Wait for it...

Taa Daa...


Now the fun decorating starts and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you all...
Here's one more look at the before & after...Isn't it amazing how a coat of paint can give something a whole new look (even if the paint did suck)...LOL


TELL ME ABOUT A PIECE OF FURNITURE YOU HAVE TRANSFORMED LATELY???

  1. Wow...the dresser looks fantastic! I think the black paint looks wonderful...you are being too hard on yourself ;) I'm sure your daughter will be pleasantly surprised with all of her room transformatons when she returns...hard to believe that school is starting already! I'm trying to not wish my summer away ;)
