Deni's Dresser Makeover

This dresser has been in the works for over a year! Why you ask? Because stripping 2 coats of 60 year old paint out of detail work takes so much time! And I'm a perfectionist so that probably added to it. I do have to say that on a flat surface the paint came off like a charm! I used spray paint stripper and it was so easy to use. This dresser has been in my family for a long time. It was used by all my aunts and mom growing up and then used by me all growing up. When my mom was young they had put a coat of white on it and then a coat of pink. The paint was old and cracking and not in good shape. I love how it looks now and I'm so glad that I have it for my daughter to use. Enjoy! Also if you haven't clicked to follow me please do! I also love comments so let me know that you were here!

I used Kilz spray primer and Krylon Glossy White. The dresser had long handles on it before so I filled the holes with wood filler and sanded it down before I painted it and then added the knobs.

The dresser finished and beautiful!

This is the mirror after I had stripped the paint off

Marie! This is such a cute blog! You are so creative. I was dying to see pictures of the ugly green paint from Capri's room. :) It looks beautiful and fresh now. I had the same exact experience with Emmett's room. I repainted it THREE times before I was finally settled. It was worth it, though!!

Super sweet dresser! It's so nice when pieces have a history like that to them, it makes them all the more special!

Please share it with my girls over at my Sundae Shake Up link party! I'm sure they would love it, since my blog is a 1950's vintage theme!
