Little Green Jug

Here is my dresser reveal! The make-over is complete, and I'm quite pleased with it!

Before:


Let's get it all out there. This is in our bedroom. I'm embarrassed by the dust, and clothes on the floor, but let's all just get over it and focus on the dresser.

Notice how the bottom left drawer pull is hanging askew. When I bought it off Craigslist, it was missing a screw. So anytime I pulled the drawer out, this pull would swing out to the side.

During:


I started off thinking I was really smart and efficient, and just bought a few cans of spray paint. That's how they always do it on HGTV. Well, unfortunately, spray paint should not be used on smooth surfaces. So, I wisened up after about 3 cans, and found some plain white interior paint on a shelf in our garage. I don't know how old this paint is....we inherited it with the house. But I think it's safe, because when I mixed it, it looked fine. I do believe there are some cans in there, though, that are "original" to the house. Meaning, 33 years old. So, we should probably discard of those soon to avoid any potential lead poisoning.

Friday night, Kennedy took me to Hobby Lobby to look at drawer pulls. DID YOU KNOW????? They have drawer pulls now! And lots of them. And really cute ones. Plus, they were all half-off.

I love Hobby Lobby.

Here is my selection:



Total cost for these knobs was $8. What a steal!!! I'll say it again.

I love Hobby Lobby.

The big reveal:

Wait for it.....

I'm hooked. I'm off to look on Craigslist for some more potential projects!
