I moved into my Fiance’s home and he had a lot of hand me down furniture. And I was like “We are soooo buying new furniture” in my bratty voice. And then I actually looked at the prices of new furniture and I was like “We are soooo NOT buying new furniture” in my OOPS I was wrong voice. Instead, I decided to revamp some of his old pieces to match my current pieces. I went for a beach theme in our bedroom as the Florida girl in me feels most at peace at the beach.
From Drab to Fab!
I’m admitting now that I’m not a professional DIY-er. And honestly I kind of just do my own thing and see how it goes. Luckily this dresser turned out stylish and super functional. It’s made a great piece in our bedroom.
How I updated this 1960’s Dresser:
- Sand the crap out of the entire thing (legs, drawers, etc)
- Painted with a flat Beyer Paint & Primer. I only did one coat, but touched up spots that needed a little more love
- Let dry for 24 hours +
- Add new hardware if desired. I got the new knobs at Home Depot for like $1.20/piece
- Put your stuff in it and admire your work!
