Drab To Fab Dresser: Before and After
Purchased this dresser from a local thrift store and had a vision.
I love all the mirrored furniture that is so popular right now, but it is all so expensive.
Why can't I make my own?
I can. . . I did. . . you can too.
. . .and this is the after. See what a little spray paint (GLAM in a CAN) and elbow grease can do? A local glass shop cut the mirrors for the upper drawers and I had the crystal knobs from another project. I used Rustoleum brand spray paint. The key to the nice finish was to rough sand and use primer (I use Rustoleum grey primer) I made sure I gave it a good couple coats of primer. The primer is a really important step. . .did I mention how important it is to use primer?
Cause it is. . .really important. . .to use primer.
This piece pretty much inspired the rest of my daughter's room.
I will post photos later.
