Before and After: Free Dresser

Hi guys, Today I am really excited to show you this dresser re-do I did recently

I got this dresser from my mother in law for free. At first I thought it was pretty ugly and I didn't know how it was going to look... And now I can't believe I was even considering not doing it.
I really love the details on this dresser and I love that its not just a regular old plain dresser. 
I'm just going to jump into this now because there are a lot of pictures to show!!

I sanded lightly and primed with a spray paint primer
The paint color is muddy river by kwal
the handles I sprayed are rust-oleum hammered
after the paint dried I lightly sanded and sprayed a poly sealer.

The dresser is going to my bedroom not the kitchen but that is kind of as far as it's gotten. Its heavy and I just got surgery on my toes so that's where it will be for a few more days :)

(RE EDITED) Okay here it is in the bedroom now :)

There is a little bit of bumps?? lol  from water I am guessing. (it is a particle wood)

  1. Morgan...
    You have a super cute blog. I am from Utah, too. I so want to move back but we have followed my husbands career to Virginia for now. In my latest post 'Rustic Bench Back in the Foyer' - you asked if I could give more details on how I cut and painted the wood. I am the worst at tutorials but here is a link to several of my paint tips...

    I hope that helps - best one yet is my baby oil trick in 'my secret to glazing cabinets'!

    Thanks for stopping by my nice to meet and follow you! :) Have a great week.
