After a little elbow grease, Matt and I were able to transform our little Craigslist dresser. It was such a fun project to do together, and really rewarding too! Down the road I may paint the trim and the detail a different color, but for now, it works perfectly for us. :)

  1. That is such a great Craigslist find! You all did a great job painting it, too! Are you going to do a post to share the painting process?

  2. Ou! Looks lovely. That will be my next project of the “new house” painting things I don’t like. Haha! Great work x


  3. LR- I should do a post to share the painting process, unfortunately we didn’t take too many interesting pictures in our “during” phase. We sanded down the dresser with a course, then fine sanding block (an electric sander would have been much easier but since we’re in a rental apartment and did everything inside, the sanding blocks were better). We then did two coats of primer and two coats of paint, and replaced the hardware. If you have any specific questions feel free to ask here or email me!

    Thanks, everyone for your encouraging comments!

  4. Oh goodness, I love this. I just adore white furniture! I’m hoping to do this over summer for my room at home. Here’s to hoping for a great Craigslist find for me!
