Pop of Color

One of the first few things I pinned on Pinterest were colored dressers in grey rooms. I loved the contrast between the room color and the pop the dresser brought in.

Last summer, Glidden had a great deal going on where you got a free quart of any color. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with our free quart. I ordered Caribbean Sea  and sort of forgot about the project. That was until this week when we had stormy weather. It was the perfect time to drag everything to the basement and get to work.  I had to bust out the orbital sander to sand this baby down:

I had to sand off all of Andy’s hard work from when he re-stained this circa 2006 Craig’s List number. It looked good in his old bedroom but the stain didn’t match any of the other dark wood we have in the room.

After two coats of paint I was left with a new, beautiful, & bright dresser!

I thought I could get away with not painting the sides but as you can see I need to go back and fix that. I am in LOVE with how it turned out.

I am on the search for new knobs, I’m thinking glass would look best. I also and looking for new bedding to go with the color scheme I am going for. Now I’m ready for the next project, which of course was another Pinterest find:
