I LOVE the idea that furniture has a story. I want to be able to look around my home and see memories and history. I never want to get rid of the first dresser Christoph and I shared as newlyweds. I want to always have the little white kids table I received as a gift with only 3 red chairs because I thought I was done having more children. I think these memories make a HOUSE A HOME. When my mom asked if I wanted an old dresser of hers from when my parents were still married I jumped at the opportunity. The only problem was it wasn’t my style, but it was nothing a little bit of paint couldn’t fix.
Don’t be afraid of paint!
I left the dresser on our lawn and after removing the drawers started spray painting. This paint is so simple to use it’s not funny. It covers perfectly and leaves a nice rustic finish. It only took one coat of paint and the dresser was dry and ready to move inside within an hour. I painted this dresser over a year ago and the paint has held up to my children and my nightly snacks and drinks.
