Painting an Old Dresser

Hello fellow Thrifters and Friends,
   I have been re-painting furniture like crazy latley. It is such a great way to update pieces I already have. Plus it can brighten up a room very nicely when you choose a bright color like yellow.

I love looking at all the shades of yellow paint at Lowes. it makes me want to buy enough furniture to use all of the shades.
We bought the dresser a long time ago at an estate sale for $2.00, and just never got around to painting it. We decided this week that our tv was just to low to the ground, and we remembered this little dresser and decided it was going to make a perfect tv stand. The dresser was definitely in need of some paint and new knobs. The knobs that were on the dresser did not match, and to be honest they were just ugly. 
Here is the before:
Here is the Lovely After:
I just love the color. It is so happy and cheerful. The knobs were found at a garage sale, so this whole project cost about $5.00 to do. Now that is a thrifty update. 
Pin It Now!


  1. Definitely energetic and adds a pop of cheer to the room.


  2. Ah you're right, the color is so cheerful and beautiful!!

  3. I love that yellow! I just finished my first paint repurposing this week. I think I might be addicted to painting now. I just want to roam the paint aisles of the nearest Home Depot for hours, ha ha.
