9 Drawer Dresser

I came across a dresser and instantly fell in love!
I had too many pieces of furniture to work on so I decided not to take this dresser home with me.
My husband tried talking me into getting the dresser but I said no....what was I thinking?

The next day I went back to see if the dresser was there.
Ya know, to see if it was meant to be.


The dresser was still sitting there patiently waiting for me to take her home and make her pretty.

After some sanding, priming, painting, glazing (which was later painted over), a light coat of poly, adding some chocolate brown microfiber fabric to the drawers and painting the hardware she looked like this.

the lighting is a little different on this picture but I love how bright it looks!

Don't you just LOVE her??

I do!!!

I wanted to let you guys know how much I spent on this dresser and supplies.

Dresser $30
Primer $9
Oops paint $2.50
Fabric $18 ( I had enough left over for other projects/furniture)
Fabric glue $8
Poly $10 (which was used for many other projects)

TOTAL for this dresser was $77.50

  13. Thank you Kathryn! I don't know the color of the paint. They don't always put the name of the paint color on the little stickers. I think they should change that personally!! I did use a similar color recently and it was called Sea Seeker by Valspar.
    I would love to see what you do with your dresser!
