My neighbor had a friend getting rid of a dresser, and I was lucky enough to snag it up. Looking at it, it was just fine on its own. But I can’t but help re-do things. Even perfectly “fine” things.
I started by staining the top a deep cherry, and painted the sides a plain white. The drawers are where things got crazy.
I took all the drawers out, and removed the knobs. I picked out “Divine Pond” during a target run for the darkest color. The bottom drawer was painted. When I was sure I liked the color, I added some white to lighten it up a bit. Then I painted the next drawer. I continued that process until the top drawer, making sure the color changed ever so slightly to give the ombre effect. Once that was dry, I screwed the knobs back in. I love how it turned out, especially considering it was free! I had all the supplies except for the paint from target, so the project was completed for less than $10.
Here is a little side by side comparison:
What fun projects have you all been working on?
