Bedroom Dresser/Hutch Update

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Breathing new life into an otherwise discarded piece of furniture. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always work with the grain of the wood when sanding and painting! Aura paint dries quickly so don't over roll.

What you will need

  • 180 grit sandpaper with palm sander
  • foam roller
  • all surface bond primer/sealer
  • Benjamin Moore Aura Satin finish paint
  • and glass hardware from Lee Valley.

You are inspiring! I have a dresser in my basement, that is great storage but not attractive. think I will try some paint and new pulls.
IntFrugalista answered:
Awesome! It's amazing how it can breath new life into otherwise discarded pieces. Good Luck!

What a difference that made...looks terrific!
IntFrugalista answered:
Thanks! This was pre-milk and chalk paint discovery. If I were to do it now, it definitely would be antiqued with either of those products.
