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.
To prepare the dresser I filled the old drawer pull holes with some putty and sanded to a smooth finish.
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.
I found some adorable light green and blue knobs that were 50% off for only $2 each from Hobby Lobby. I measured each drawer and marked with a pencil where the new holes were going to be. I then drilled the new holes in all 5 drawers and screwed in the new knobs.
And that’s it! A completely transformed 5-drawer chest for less. Plus the paint is scrubbable (perfect for a child’s bedroom, right?). The Dutch Boy Refresh paint is also low odor and goes on super smooth! You can check out all the available Dutch Boy colors here.
I fell so in love with this love antique white color (Cotton Blossom) that I’m painting a little side table as well for my family room. Hopefully I’ll have that reveal in the next week or two!
