Natalia's 'Before and After' Dresser Makeover

My youngest daughter has been asking for a bigger dresser for quite some time, so when I recently saw this dresser on Kijiji for a screamin' deal, I had to buy it!  It was a stained dresser with half the handles either missing or hanging off...not very pretty at first glance.  But, I saw the potential as it's a very solid piece, so I bought it with the intention of repainting it and sourcing some new hardware for it.

This is what it looks like now...

Natalia loves bright colours, so we agreed on this gorgeous turquoise colour.  It's called 'Taking the Plunge' by Dulux paints.  I removed all the hardware, primed it and then applied the turquoise melamine paint.  This is the first time I've ever painted with melamine paint and I've got to say, I really like it.  It covered so well that one coat was almost good enough, although I added another coat for added durability.

As you can see from all the Eiffel Towers, Natalia loves the Paris theme of her room and she absolutely loves her new dresser...I love the fact that I got it so cheap!  If you know me, then you know how much of a bargain hunter I am!  lol  :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
