Mid Century Dresser Makeover

We are still settling in to our newly remolded kitchen (follow along on instagram @taylormadecreates). So, in the meantime I have a few things I’ve been meaning to post. Like this dresser that I finished in January, at least I’m posting it in the same year right haha?! This dresser started out off-white with gold “speckles” on it, not really my style. But… I know good bones when I see them. I had been searching online for the perfect buffet with the right pop of color for our dining room. My dad had a friend getting rid of it and thought I might like it… he was right! I know it would be the perfect DIY for our space.

I sanded it down a little and cleaned it but the real star of the show is the paint I used. I went with Luscious Green by Valspar that I got at Lowes. I also bought a decent brush which I don’t usually do. Here is a super non-glamourous cell phone progress pic. I did two good coats then touched up ares that needed it with a third coat. The paint was amazing and covered really well without having to use too much. This was my first time using this paint and- no this post isn’t sponsored by them at all, I just really liked this paint!

I unscrewed the hardware and thought about replacing it but ended up spraying it gold and loving it! It didn’t take long to dry but I just left it in the garage overnight and then brought her in the next. She’s SO perfect for our dining room under the plate wall.
