I have this old, hand-me-down dresser. It used to be my mom’s, but in 2003 when my sister was moving to Ann Arbor to go to Michigan to get her doctorate, she wanted to use it. Somehow, being the little sister, I got talked into painting it. She had specifically asked for a light sage green, but with my limited paint knowledge at the time, sage green came out looking more mint green. After she was done at UofM, the dresser went back into storage at my parent’s house. It laid to rest there until in 2008 when I dusted it off and hauled it away. Jas and I were in desperate need of free furniture to place in our new home and this fit the bill. Now, four years and another move later, the dresser sits in my room housing all of Jas’s things while he is in Canada. Ten years later and, check it, mint green is now very much in style. So, this past week I decided to give the dresser a little TLC and a change out the knobs. After spending hours finding and picking out knobs based on size and shape, I went home, got out my brushes and paints, and upgraded a much loved dresser.
During: Painting was done in 2 different stages to achieve the weathered look.
