Dresser Take Two

I bought this pair of dressers from Craig's list for $180. It's in great condition and has nice metal drawer slides. The wood tone don't fit the look of the girl's room so it's on to a dresser makeover.

Here is the inspiration piece. What I liked was that the color make the dresser pop. It added a punch of color to the room without having to go over board with a whole wall of bright color. There will be enough pink in the room so I'm going to go with an accent color of green to pull the look together.


Here is what I did.

Finished!
It really didn't take me long at all to prime and paint the dresser. I was very happy with how easy the project really was. I would show you more photos of the project, but this is just one step in our daughters' room makeover. But shh.. The rest is a birthday surprise! You will have to wait until after September 15th to see the completed project.

I did a double take with this one. Your "before" pic is a 5 drawer dresser, and your "after" pic is a 4 drawer. It took me a second to catch on that you bought two!

That is awesome! I agree just one piece can bring in so much color to a room. I need to tackle my brown bookshelves - i needed this inspiration. :)
