Poofy Cheeks: Dresser Makeover Debut

Dresser Makeover Debut

Last week I shared my newest Goodwill makeover contestant who was in desperate need of a facelift and a new coat of polish. Did I mention a broken drawer? You can find all of the dresser's BEFORE pictures HERE.
What was once before a cream colored dresser with gold trim is now a lovey shade of pale green. I would share the paint color with you, but I mixed it from some paints I had in the garage. It still needs drawer pulls, but I haven’t found any that I like yet (or at least not in my price range!) I have only spent $10 on this dresser so far, so I don’t want to drop $70 just on hardware!


Now I’m off to scrub the paint from my hands and arms!

  1. Wow! Great makeover! Love it!
    Thank you so much for sharing this @ {nifty thrifty sunday} last week!
    I can't wait to see more from you on Sunday!

  2. Looks beautiful! Did the dresser have a Formica top originally and were you able to just sand and paint it? I have a dresser that looks similar and I'm not sure about painting the top.

    1. Hey Ann! Yes mine did have a formica top and I still sanded it lightly and painted with the latex paint. I added two coats of polycrylic and it has been about three years now and still holding up. There is one spot that scratched but I attribute that to normal wear and tear with two crazy boys :)


Your comments make me smile!
