Blue Dresser Makeover.

Blue Dresser Makeover.

One of my friends from high school is becoming a foster parent! I kept seeing her posts about the bedroom makeover and followed along the entire process. I  have enjoyed witnessing how the room has slowly transformed into a welcoming space for a little one longing for a safe and nurturing environment.
Seeing her do something so selfless and kind inspired me to help in the only way I know how to:  by brushing life into a piece of furniture that will complement their home and make it even more unique and special.
I choose this dresser because it will add character to the room while providing additional storage. A win-win!

My first step is always cleaning the piece using White Lightning Cleaner.  Never skip this important step. Cleaning and prepping your furniture will guarantee a good quality finish.  I have a short video in case you would like to learn about how to prep your furniture the right way.

After the dresser was nice and clean, I applied a coat of BOSS primer in white. Now, the most fun part of the process: adding color!
The bedroom has lots of fun colors in it already so we decided to make the dresser a simple piece. I painted this dresser in the ever so calming Haint Blue from Dixie Belle Paint Company. Sometimes simple does it 🤍.

I sealed it with Satin Clear coat and replaced the hardware with oil rubbed bronze knobs. As much as I wanted to put crystal knobs on this one, I decided the bronze make it gender-neutral!

This was such a straightforward and quick makeover, that I know that anyone reading can replicate the process easily! For me, the best part of it was not how simple was to complete it, but that I was able to take a small part in the beautiful journey my friend is about to embark on.
