the "DONNA" Dresser is ready

I’m calling this dresser the “DONNA” dresser as a friend of a friend named Donna gave me  this dresser on the day I was moving into this apt for UJ (story here) and he used this dresser while living with me this past year but didn’t want me to bother to paint it or his room (you know that drove me crazy) lol

And now the “NEW” room is ready for the a color reveal {the trim has yet to be completed)

and the “DONNA” dresser is ready to be shown I think it’s my best paint job to date… I totally want to pick up some clear wax to add to the dresser but for now Let’s call it done & oh so pretty don’t you agree???


this was the before


I used spray paint – Krylon Metallic Silver & Satin Black for knobs & the silver on body of dresser
& some oops paint I got in Walmart for $5.75 which is the total cost of this remake as I had the silver spray paint on hand

First I did the knobs & body in spray paints
I leaned the dresser on my bucket of paint and if you look you can see where I havent even painted the room trim but got excited for this dresser so it jumped to the top of project list
Here were the drawers after the first coat and I considered leaving them like this for about a minute….
Even tested the knobs but decided on another coat of paint
and TA DAH…
I picked up these cute boxes at Target this weekend in the dollar bin
Great find I think…

And here she is “DONNA DRESSER” What do you think???
I love love love it

    Well, since my name is Donna, I think she is very special! Love the metallic on the wood. I have a table I have been thinking about a metal redo. You have just about convinced me that is the way to go. Yours turned out great!
