I’ve had the same dresser for just about my entire life and noticed the other day how desperately it needed some TLC.
Knobs were severely outdated, drawers scratched and laced with remnants of my glitter-glue obsessed preteen years (I know, right??)
So this delightfully sunny Monday afternoon I set out to bring my dresser back into the 21st century. Originally I wanted to totally repaint the entire piece, but upon further research it just sounded like too much work and skills I did not possess. I settled on just doing the very tops of the drawers and updating the mirror that rests on the dresser (which also doesn’t match ANYTHING.)
Here is a list of all the things I used:
– Half yard of lace (from Jo-Anns)
– Heirloom White Rustoleum spray paint (from Menards)
– Two new knobs to match spray paint (from Hobby Lobby); I decided to keep the pull knobs since they weren’t really that bad, so I also had to match the new knobs with these ones.
Total cost of dresser update: $ 8.55 (!!!). Thanks to some awesome sales and a little shopping around. So worth it.
Here are the before and after:
