See the awful, orange-y wood that it was before? It didn't go with anything else in my room. But with a little (ok, a lot) of spray paint, I transformed it into something pretty! After priming my dresser, I used Rust-Oleum Satin Heirloom White spray paint. It's kind of an off-white color, the perfect balance between white and ivory. I had to use 4 cans to cover the dresser completely. You also may notice my mirror changed colors. The black just wasn't going with my room either (my room is all pale colors) so I decided to paint it a light gold. I couldn't find a spray paint color that I really liked, so my mom suggested painting it by hand with a brush. Hand painting it was actually perfect because the brush strokes gave it a great texture. I used Martha Stewart Golden Pearl paint and it turned out exactly how I wanted. I did around 4 coats and left a little black showing through so it would look more antique.
I love my dresser so much now! If I'm ever thinking of throwing away furniture again, I will definitely consider painting first, because just changing the color can do so much!
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend! ♥
