My daughter was recently in need of a bigger dresser. However, we didn't want to go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a new one. So, why not give an old dresser a fresh makeover at a fraction of the cost?
We started looking at local consignment stores and found a nice, sturdy 6 drawer dresser for only $20!!! It was a light wood color with metal knobs and handles. Not something that flows with the rest of the furniture in her room.
My husband got to work sanding the dresser and then painting it. He used a slightly off white color that matches her nightstand and desk. Since the accent colors in her room are blue, pink, and green, he also spray painted the handles to match.
Voila!!! A new makeover on an old item.
