Today is reveal day for the dresser I started a month ago. It is a far cry from its working look of white primer.
Here are the handles I showed yesterday. I’m not sure if the brass handles are a perfect match with the gray, but they will stay as is for now.
I put a coat of pearlescent paint on the side establishments so it wouldn’t look too flat. It is not a big difference, but it catches a little more light than the rest of the dresser.
Ta-da. This is by far my favorite paint project. It was fast and easy and the finish turned out well. We’ll give details on how we painted it in another post. What do you think of our gorgeous gray dresser?
This cost a little more than my average project, but it is a lot bigger than my average project.
$75 for the dresser
$4.90 for the paint ($19 for a gallon, but I only used 1/4 of the can)
$3.99 for the Brasso
$83.89 for a semi-new dresser. Not too shabby considering an MDF put-it-together- yourself dresser from Ikea costs at least $200.
