Find out how I painted this old secondhand $10 dresser

I needed a credenza for a salon space I was working on and came across this dresser that was the perfect size. I loved the design and the quality of the wood was amazing, a very heavy nice sturdy piece of furniture. So I decided to buy it because I knew I could refinish it and make a unique piece for this space. This was my first time painting wood furniture but I knew with a little bit of homework (youtube videos) I could figure it out. So I searched online for pictures of painted dressers and decided to paint this turquoise with touches of silver.

This was my color swatch and most of the supplies I used

  • Paint trey with plastic liner

  • Paint roller

  • Paint brush

  • Small Paint roller

  • Printer for wood surface

  • Gallon Paint color [acrylic}

  • Polycrylic for high gloss

  • Silver spray paint

  • AND TIME!!!

So here she is…Old 19 something wood dresser
