Do you remember last week on my Craig’s list post, I scored a major collection of “Princess Style Furniture”, making up for my near miss with the freebie post?Â If you haven’t read it, then you might want to catch up, If you “do” Craig’s list, then I am sure you can relate!
Luck turned favorably for moi, and I was able to score a whole bunch of gorgeous furniture for practically nuthin.Â The first of which is now a “Redoux” and is residing in my youngest Daughter’s Bedroom.
Here it is before, in all it’s 70’s style glory:
And here it is after:Â Two coats of Primer, a good and heavy spraying of SW “Alabaster White”, and then finished off the details with my Silver Leafing Paint Pen.Â The recessed area in each drawer, I used a very small paint brush and painted in this area with my new favorite “Martha Stewart” craft paint in “Silver”.Â I sprayed out the handles in Silver, and voila, we have a brand new dresser!Â Â

The dresser goes with this desk that was a roadside find
Just so you know…this is the first part of a total room makeover.Â Stay tuned for the rest of the story……
Here is how the room looked before, this is the area where the dresser now resides:
