Before & After: Dresser makeover!
It ended up taking several coats of paint... like, 6. Luckily the paint dried really, really quickly, so I was able to do a few coats a day.
I don't like the way painted furniture looks with brush strokes, so I used a small memory foam-type roller to put the paint on everywhere except around the handles where the roller couldn't reach. There, I used a small brush and then a foam dauber to get rid of the brush strokes.
We haven't painted the bedroom yet, so I don't know what it'll look like for sure when we're done, but it works for now, too. Although I did put on the last spot-touch-up coat shortly before getting dressed this morning, and so of course I had to get my jeans out of the bottom drawer veeeeery carefully!! Haha.
Furniture painting is so easy and makes such a big difference! Have any of you done any great furniture piece makeover projects recently??
