I picked up this baby by the side of the road. It smelled like an old lady. I could totally see that some old lady with lots of cats had this dresser. She took good care of it, but when she died the children just put it out for anyone to take. (Do you do that, develop a back story for your found furniture? Maybe I'm just strange like that).
It really is not a very special piece. The dresser is constructed out of particle board, and plastic. I had no problem painting it at all. In fact, it took the paint like a champ. There was no fighting this one, and only two coats (after the primer), and then the poly.
Alright, are you excited to see what I did with it?
I gave this one a nice coat of white paint and it was done. I really like it in the simple white. I kept the hardware. It has a bit of whimsy. I might paint the handles at some point in the future.
Here are some more shots:
One last time:
Now that I did this project I am ready to paint my beloved antique (or close to antique, it is real wood at least).
I'm sure you all want to know what color I will paint it. Well the color found us.
