Structurally, the dresser was in perfect condition. Cosmetically, it was decent. I used for several months without doing anything to it before it spoke to me. When it finally did speak to me, it begged me to make it turquoise. And, who am I to deny a 60 year old dresser of its last wish?!
So, this past weekend, I removed the drawers and gave everything a good wipe down, a coat of primer and 2 coats of Lagoon by Behr in semigloss. The paint color actually goes quite well with the funky attitude of the dresser. It is just what I was going for.
She now has a place of prominence in my office/craft room and holds my fabric and sewing machine accessories. Basically, we love each other. Not bad for free, huh?
PS- I don't know if you can tell, but I left the legs natural. Does anyone have any thoughts on that? I'm not sold on it just yet...
