It has been forever since I have done a big revamp.
It felt good! I love seeing shanty turn chic :-)!!
I recently received this beautiful dresser from my in-laws. I loved everything about it! It has beautiful lines, WORKING drawers and perfect old hardware. She just needed a little revamp.
I did sand the top a bit just to smooth it out a bit. I didn’t prime it first but I did use Valspar’s new paint that is mixed with primer. I notice a huge difference in this paint and the original Valspar. It goes on so much thicker and seems very durable.
I removed all the drawers and removed the hardware. I then painted everything with 2 coats of my perfect off-white. It is a Valspar color called Ivory Lace. It matches my trim, and I LOVE it!
Finally, I sanded my edges up a bit and topped everything with 2 thin coats of Polycrylic. I prefer Polycrylic to Polyurethane because it doesn’t yellow over time and it’s not near as strong in smell so I don’t feel bad doing it inside!
Here are the results…
What do you think?? I thought the hardware was perfect so I didn’t change a thing there! Doesn’t a good revamp feel so good???
This dresser is going in my girls’ room. I have one bed totally finished, painted and put together. I bought all my wood for bed number 2 today and should have it finished in a day or so!! Whoooop!
Can’t wait to show you guys!!
