Before & After: Bamboo Dresser

Remember this dresser I bought a few months ago?

I got it at Canton for only $45. Luckily Sarah was there to convince me to buy it, as I was hesitant on how easily it could be painted.

"You can paint ANYTHING!", she said. And she was right...

Boo-ya! Pink bamboo dresser with shiny gold hardware!

I'm thinking a large painting needs to go over this.

I got the hardware at a local hardware store called Elliot's. It was about $60 total.

I quickly gathered some pretties from around the house and put them up. I think a larger statement lamp needs to go here.

And there's more surprises on the inside!

The pink is Ballet Slipper from Krylon. The sides are apricot by Valspar.

So with $45 for the dresser, $60 for the hardware and about $30 for all the paint, primer and poly. The total is only $135, not too bad!

I also started taking this stool apart on a whim to recover it.

I. Have. No. Idea. What. I'm. Doing.

Wish me luck into my upholstery foray.

I continued my stealing with this chair and side table from the living room. It's perfect in here!

Happy Friday Lovers!
