A couple weeks ago I took a late night trip to the thrift store. The parking lot wasn’t very full, which hopefully meant there was lot’s of goodies inside waiting for me. I always walk towards the furniture department first, hoping to score a vintage chair or dresser. As soon as I rounded the corner, there she stood. A small French Provincial dresser.
I was provided product by BEHR to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
It’s not to often you see a French dresser at the thrift store, and for under $10. I stood waving my arms trying to flag down an employee to come over with a sold sticker. She was mine.
I couldn’t wait to get home and start painting. Choosing a color is always the hardest part. I finally decided on OLD MUSTARD by BEHR paint. When choosing a finish I always pick flat. I find that flat finish is the easiest to paint with and allows me to add a wax finish .
Before I started painting I removed the handles along with the gold accent pieces on the bottom drawer. Using a flat head screw driver I just popped them off since it was just plastic. They were a little to gaudy for me.
I have to say, this dresser might be one of my favorites that I have painted. I think every house needs a painted dresser.
