Refreshed 5-Drawer Chest

I found this chest of drawers at Goodwill for $20 and thought I would show it some love with a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware.

Since I wanted to protect the wood and take away any odors from the previous owners, I decided to give it a fresh coat of Dutch Boy’s Refresh paint in Cotton Blossom. This paint reduces odor (think laundry room makeover!), is self-priming and is incredibly durable.

Next I used a small cabinet and trim roller to paint the top, sides, and drawers, and then a smaller brush for the detailed pieces. I did two coats of paint with drying time between the coats. I also lightly sanded down the dresser with some sandpaper between each coat to make it super smooth.

Merry Christmas to All!

I just wanted to pop in for a bit and say MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS! I hope everyone gets to spend some quality time with their family, friends and loved ones this week.handmade ornament2We have a hectic schedule these next 2 days, and I’m extremely sad that this will be the first Christmas without all of my siblings together. But my 5 year old is at such a fun age and truly makes me believe in the magic of the holiday season and Christ our Savior!
