My brain wasn’t hitting on all cylinders yesterday.  And it should have been. I mean I have a great nights sleep, a casual morning and a filling breakfast. Things weren’t improving by mid morning so I decided to switch gears and paint.

Paint a dresser, not paint something Van Gogh-ish.

On the blog, you have seen this dresser several times with different seasonal décor arranged on top of it.

I bought it from a friend of a friend. It isn’t antique or vintage. It was not hand painted. It was mass produced.

And I liked it.

But, today was the day that I finally took a leap of faith and decided to fall in love with it.

Not trusting my cylinder skipping day, I sent a picture of the dresser to a friend of mine  (Karianne from Thistlewood Farms, maybe you have heard of her)  🙂 asking her what her opinion was about painting this piece. She responded:

 Hmm….what about a light blue? Or gray (of course)!  hahahaha!

Gray it shall be. Thanks for the suggestion Ms. Thistlewood Farms Blogger Extraordinaire.

The handles were easily removed and I lightly sanded the fronts of the drawers.

Trophy from the Miss Mustard Seed milk paint line was my gray color choice. It happened to also be the only gray milk paint I had, so, win-win on that.

At first I was thinking I would only paint the drawer fronts but as the project progressed, I felt that the entire dresser, not including the the top needed to be painted.

One coat of paint easily covered the two drawer dresser. I then finished it with a top coat of MMS Hemp Oil.

It took me less than 2 hours from start to finish to finish the dresser makeover.

Putting the before and after side by side, makes me giddy happy that I painted yesterday. A sign of love.

Have a lovely Saturday!
