TADA! I am so so happy that our master bedroom is officially complete:) If I am being 100% percent honest I have been wanting to redo our dresser for over a year now so getting this complete last weekend was very exciting! This piece we originally bought off craigslist and with the style of our new home it no longer flowed that well with our master bedroom. If you have been following me a while you know that I always rave about how much a coat of paint can change everything. It really is amazing how much of an impact a paint and some new hardware can completely transform a furniture piece. I believe any space in your home whether it is your bathroom, closet, or bedroom should reflect your style and make you happy when you walk into that space. I also think it is so important to prioritize the look and feel of the rooms in your home that you spend the most time in. That way when you are spending time in those spaces you feel comfortable, and relaxed.
This piece of furniture was one in which I saw everyday and the more I looked at it the more I thought you know what this baby needs an dresser makeover haha. I did not sand this piece down before I painted it. I do realize that when you do not sand down your furniture it is more likely to chip over time than if you sanded it down and then started from scratch with painting it. How you choose to paint and redo your furniture is 100% up to you. One thing that is important to keep in mind is if the furniture piece you are thinking of changing is one that you will be using everyday (opening, closing the drawers) then you may want to consider sanding down, or using chalk paint as both of these options are a lot more forgiving. I used the Glidden interior semi gloss glistening moonlight paint for this dresser. Here is another reminder of what this looked like prior to the paint.
The best part I would have to say about our bedroom makeover is that I actually want to spend time in here now. Isn’t it crazy how all it took for me to want to spend time in here was just painting and adding new hardware? I encourage you to also shop your home. Move different pieces around, paint hardware if you don’t like the way something looks in your space. I hope this encourages you to make that change on a piece of furniture you have in your home or to take a look at the hardware maybe that will spark an idea in your mind as well:)
