The moment you've all been waiting for...
I think the universe is trying to keep me from blogging!
I've told you about how my computer refuses to upload editted photos already. Well just recently, I lost a whole memory stick full of images that took two weeks to recover, by which point I was too fed up to go through them.
Then, I lost my DSLR battery charger. I'm sure it's somewhere, but I'm stuck with my Iphone in the meantime.
Then when I was trying to upload photos last night, Blogger said I was out of storage space and wouldn't let me upload anything! But this morning I can...weird.
We left off with this beauty hanging out in our entry hall, just screaming for some fresh paint and new knobs!
So one night I set off to start priming the thing- later realizing that I always buy Behr Premium Paint + Primer, which negates the need for primer, and I could have saved all that wasted white paint + primer to make stripes on our TV wall, but oh well!
I like to dive into a project before properly setting up or buying the right supplies, so here we are one coat in, without removing the old knobs or putting cardboard down so I can paint the legs:
Pretty ugly, but it's only one coat in!
The dresser has these little panels on the side, where I decided to use some of the leftover wallpaper from my first dresser make over.
Then came the most exciting part.
Painting! Teal! Hummingbird Blue by Martha Stewart, specifically! I color matched it to Behr Premium Paint + Primer, which is my personal favorite.
It only took one coat to get this piece looking fantastic, but I did three, because I just love painting that much!
I switched out the old knobs for some bling bling diamond ring type pulls.
The dresser is pretty old, and came with lots of dings that I think add character, so I didn't bother to fill in any of these gems:
Total cost of this make over:
- Dresser: $0
- Paint: $15
- Knobs: $30
Total Cost: $45
Not too bad!
Here's a preview of the carpet that we're 90% sure we're going to be getting after the holidays:
