I was so excited when I found this dresser at Goodwill yesterday morning. SOLID maple, vintage, stable condition, and 3 working drawers....And the best part....the price tag....$35.
In addition to loving all the above, I had never seen a dresser like this before. The pulls and the cut outs were so eye catching. Plus I loved the notched out areas on the drawers. This piece was screaming "DISTRESS ME"!
The first thing I did was the usual and primed it with BIN. By using the BIN, I am sealing it from preventing any of the wood color from bleeding through.
Next I chose my paint color as I always do by choosing what OOPS paint I have around the house. I went with this Benjamin Moore blue color that Randy picked up for me for $5. I will probably get 10 large projects out of this gallon, so I basically paid 50 cents to paint this piece. If that.....
Here it is after the first coat....Nothing exciting....
And.....the finished product...
I can see this piece in any room of the house. It can go boy or girl. Would be perfect in a large bathroom to hold towels and toiletries.
Thanks for looking!
