Quick Mini Dresser Makeover

img_4117

I got this mini dresser a few years ago at one of our families annual white elephant gift exchanges during Christmas time.   As adorable as it is, it no longer matches my decor.

So I decided it’s time for a mini makeover!  Yesss!  **air high fives nobody**

I removed all the hardware and carried it outside.   Then I wiped it down with a damp towel.

Never underestimate the power of spray paint. I chose ‘matte pale sage’ for the dresser, and ‘matte black’ for the hardware.

Then I just sprayed the paint steadily back-and-forth.  It’s like an invisible paintbrush!  I needed two coats so I used one and a half cans of the sage.

Next was the hardware. I only needed a few “spritzes” of black.

It took about an hour to dry.

Then I put on new furniture sliders…

And replaced the hardware.

I really like the color – it’s a pale blue/green 🙂

Please overlook the weird trim.  The previous homeowner’s chose to paint it glossy brown.  We’re currently replacing it with matte white trim.

“To each their own”… I guess……….

And there you have it!  A super easy mini makeover makes a world of difference.  The purpose of this post?

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A $4 CAN OF SPRAY PAINT. 🙂

Thanks for joining me! Good company always shortens the journey so I'm glad you're here. My name is Tara Benson and I'm 33 years young. I'm an energetic wife and mother with a wild imagination and a bold sense of humor. Consider me 100% right brained. I love music, art, interior design, gardening, baking, cooking, creating and hobby farming. I'm married to the best husband, Jason. It's safe to say we're opposites in many ways, but get along GREAT. We have two very intelligent and loving children, Owen (10) and Belle (4). I come from a huge family with three brothers, one sister and about a thousand others in the extended version. I'm also a mother to a mixed herd of animals (13 and counting...). I work in the mortgage industry from my home office. In 2015, my husband and I bought a 13 acre farm on the eastern plains of Colorado. We decided to live out our dreams and make the best of our lives for ourselves and our children. We want to teach them that hard work and creativity will always payoff at the end of the day. So welcome! Stick around a while and make yourself at home. -Tara
