This is the kind of dresser we see at every garage sale and on the curb, sitting forlorn and distressed.
This Mengel Deco oak dresser has a great shape and outline with plenty of flat surface area to go decoration-wild. But as a shop yard sales, thrift stores, and flea markets this spring and summer, I am going to be looking for things with COLOR or things that can be spray painted in a fun color – spring green, coral, navy, teal, yellow are my favorites right now. I plan to share a post soon on what I store in these dresser drawers and in the dresser drawers my $20 dresser in my hall upstairs too. And I have been showing my husband quite a few pictures of black painted interior doors, like this one from Adventures in Decorating. I love your entry way, however I would leave the dresser white and get some colorful lamp shades to save money recover your old lamp shades I would paint the walls a light aqua color and change out the knobs on the dresser to crystal ones. If you have problems with the paint drying out too quickly, add a little water as needed to keep it wet longer. I don’t remember the website, but I was looking for recipes for homemade chalk paint, and one of the recipes said not to use non-sanded grout because it is toxic when you sand it.

I have never made chalk paint with the plaster of paris before, but I’ve heard good things about it! I surely would have walked by the dresser, tossed it to the road or never even gave it a second look. My inaugural post here on Babble several moons ago was a little ode to DIY furniture makeovers. While tackling upholstery has always frightened me, this chair's glam look pairing black velvet with metallic gold has me inspired to give it a try!Get the how-to from 551 East. This side table got a whole new look with the addition of a time worn wooden slat top and coat of glossy white paint!Get the how-to from Design, Dining + Diapers. I love all things nautical so this dresser painted in preppy blue and white stripes is right up my alley!Get the how-to from A Girl and a Brush.


I'm still loving the ombre trend and especially for a little girl's room I think this pink dresser is just darling!Get the how-to from minimoz. Combining the best of a wood finish and paint, I love the graphic white pattern on this dresser!Get the how-to from Design*Sponge. Check out the what creative suggestions she came up with for two dressers in need of a little TLC.
The monochromatic color scheme paired with the simple tree paintings is a subtle and inviting combination. But then I think that would be a whole lot of WHITE!  I could always repaint the dresser in some fun color – gray or heavily distressed teal or something.
This was originally stained, but I painted it a french country blue and then realized I had no idea what to do with it. I have heard that sanding homemade chalk paint that uses non-sanded grout releases toxic fumes. I did love the style of the dresser and the size, so I quickly decided “I don’t care what it looks like, I will make it look beautiful for me”. I spend an afternoon putting a few coat of paint on the dresser to get away from all that pink and once it all dried, I took  sandpaper to distress areas that I wanted to look old. Turns out, after our recent move and with an entire apartment to outfit, I’m back on the furniture makeover bandwagon in a major way. You can achieve this type of makeover by painting the pattern but you can utilize a better method: use Krink paint markers.
Looking at my beautiful dresser that now sits in my office and fits perfect into the space, I would have never thought it would be that simple to turn something old, trashy and just plain ugly into this beautiful piece that is now my favorite in the house.
I have used it many times over in my Bedroom makeover or any other painting I do on furniture.. And then you could leave the lamp bases white and do a stencil on the shade in a matching or coordinating color of the dresser. As in, this weekend I am rolling up my sleeves, grabbing a paint brush and getting busy transforming a pair of side tables in desperate need of some love.


So if you are thinking of painting furniture, be sure to check out ZINSSER Cover Stain primer; it will get you to a beautiful piece of furniture down the road. Once I got home I came across the person that sold the piece’s Facebook page and I saw a picture of what the dresser looked like before she painted it..
This time on my dresser I did not need to use it; the paint that was put on before was okay to be painted again, so I was able to skip this step. Instead of color in the lampshades, how about if keep them white and paint the lamps themselves a teal blue. I picked up a quart of Antique White paint at Lowes and a small can of brown stain so I could distress it.
I would love to find something similar, although I have never painted furniture and it probably would never look as good as yours.
The paint is supposed to be the best because it usually takes only one coat, no primer or sanding needed, and it sands off in a chalky manner to distress furniture easily.
So herewith, 10 furniture makeovers so awesome you’ll be skipping to the hardware store to buy a bucket of paint!
Then I added my $3 spray painted brass lamps to the dresser, a DIY Hydrangea wreath, and a new sign from Hobby Lobby. You can also add a little water to the tablespoon of grout to begin with and mix it together to form a paste, then add your paint in and mix well. I know better; I will not let anything go without thinking of HOW it will look like with some paint.
I found a recipe online for home made chalk paint and decided I would try it out on this $5 yard sale table I have. By the time I was done with the first coat, I could tell there were a few places that  needed a bit more paint.
