My Dresser Got The Blues

Blue, blue, blue, blue! My go-to color. Also the main color in our room. Since we are keeping this dresser, it became blue to match the bed in our room.

We got this dresser from a neighbor who was moving out of state. It was missing one of the plastic deco things, so we just got rid of all of them and put on some wood trim. 

I primed the dresser with Zinsser's oil-based paint because it's all the rage with DIY furniture makeovers, so I thought I would give it a try. In all honesty, I don't see what the hype was all about. Zinsser's water-based primer is just as good, and I don't have to use mineral spirit to clean my brush/self up, or throw the brush away. and omgosh, oil-based primer smells SO BAD. So bad. The oil-based primer also takes about 1,490,099 years to dry.

While I was waiting for the primer to dry I spray painted the hardware gold with Rust-Oleum Metallic spray paint.

We have been working on our house for over a year. It’s a work in progress. We officially moved into our house in April earlier this year, and have slowly been furnishing it. So excited to have this baby in there!
