painted furniture in aqua and white
Does this dresser make you smile?
It makes me smile
I mean……it has flowers and everything!
I know some people don’t care for painted furniture, but if you are here…..I know you like it.
This piece came from the Nashville Flea Market.
A pretty good purchase at $40. It’s solid wood and didn’t have any damage to it.
I didn’t care much for the original hardware. Too something……can’t find the word I’m looking for.
I started looking for drawer pulls in my stash but I couldn’t find any the size of the original screw holes. I don’t mind drilling new holes I just hate filling the old ones.
I finally found some pulls still in their bags, never used. The great thing about them is the pull covered the original holes so I didn’t have to fill them, yea! I also liked the finish so they didn’t need painting. Another plus +.
The hard part when drilling the holes is to be sure and get them lined up right or you’ll have a big problem.
This pull was easy because the way it is made I could easily mark the spots with a pencil.
The top pulls are from Hobby Lobby and are faux mercury glass.
For the outside of the dresser I chose Reclaim Bright White paint and for the drawers, Behr in an aqua tone.
I like the two-tone paint look. How about you, do you like this furniture makeover?
Did you notice the vases?
I’ll share more photos of them later this week with a tutorial.
(Psst) you can see the tutorial now at Diy-Spray Paint Glass Decanters For Home Decor.
