Had a great Saturday night gambling at Winstar in Oklahoma with my good friends and Hubby!
Sunday ended with a revamp of this 50's dresser!
On Saturday morning, my sister and I went garage sale-ing. One of our favorite things to do together! We got some really great deals, but the big sha-bang was finding this 50's dresser.
Yep, bought her for only $20!!! Eeekkk! I am still just so excited. I am excited because it's SOLID wood, and it has cedar lined drawers. I mean this high quality my friends!
Anytime you can find and old dresser with cedar lined drawers for a cheap price, snag it!
I already had the paint, so literally this baby only cost me $20!
I sanded it down just a little bit first, removing some big clumps of paint and or stains, then I began painting it with this BABY...
You can cut down your painting by several hours. Its spays very evenly, and doesn't make a huge mess. I would definitely paint outside with it, unless you have everything near by covered, including the floor, because its a sprayer and it does get on things a little bit, plus if your startled and your hand is on the trigger, for sure other things could be sprayed.
It was a little bit windy this afternoon, so I moved the cars far down the driveway, and all was good.
The paint is a Black Primer plus Paint by Behr.
I painted the whole thing first, and then once it seemed to be a little dried I took out the drawers and painted on the sides of the drawers and on the sides inside the dresser to make sure none of the old white paint showed.
Well, there ya have it. Hope you got some new idears. Painting old (or new) isn't hard at all, just takes a little hunting and some elbow grease. But in this case if ya have a sprayer, its not hard at all. And look its a beautiful new piece. I kind of want it for my room :(
Thanks for tuning in!
