Dressed Up Dresser

Update: Check out my dresser featured on Apartment Therapy!

 I frequently scout local thrift stores for old furniture to redo. I bought this mid century modern dresser for $25, knowing that after a mini makeover, it would be both adorable and functional. 

The dresser was beat up and made of particle board, so I didn’t feel guilty painting it. I coated the dresser in 2-3 cans black semi-gloss spray paint. In its original state it didn’t have any drawer pulls, so I drilled holes and added ornate knobs I found on sale at Anthropologie.

 The entire dresser makeover took only one weekend to complete. The dresser fits perfectly in my small bedroom and I think it goes nicely with the yellow antique mirror that hangs above it.

Making over furniture is one of my favorite hobbies- See my Beverage cart B&A . Do you have any furniture makeover tips or ideas? I’d love to hear about them.
