The chest of drawers in my bedroom is another great example of how a simple paint makeover makes a huge difference.

As a bestie was moving from a 2BRDM duplex into a 1BRDM apartment, I’d just moved from a 1BRDM into my house with two bedrooms AND two living spaces. Naturally, I was glad to take the extra chest of drawers she offered.

It was a 70’s era tall chest of drawers with some low relief carving on the front and fun hardware. I don’t have any good before photos unfortunately other than this photo of my cat lounging in a drawer while I seem to have some sort of dressing fit happening around her.

This chest of drawers screamed for a fun color so I decided on a bright blue. After priming it and coating it in two layers of paint I actually ended up getting a second color because the first one was too turquoise.

Since I often leave a door open on the front and have this opportunity for something different I took full advantage of the situation!

Like the buffet in my dining room, to add contrast and reuse some existing paint, I painted the interior drawers and doors yellow. I also sprayed the hardware a matte silver.

I’m quite pleased with the results of this paint makeover!

In fact, it prompted me to buy another dresser I saw listed cheaply on Craigslist for my guest room. I’m overdue to paint it but having a hard time deciding on its color. Maybe you’ll see more on that soon..….

I love a simple paint makeover like this. Share your paint makeovers!
