Painted Dresser

  Well I got the dresser finished. I do need to put one more 1x2 on each one of the mirrors though. I don’t think one will be enough for each one of them. I took a pic of it at each angle so you could see it from both angles. I’ve got the other two 1x2 strips painted and now I am waiting for them to dry so I can stick them on each mirror. You will be able to see them when you walk in my bedroom so I wanted to paint them to match so it would look better.

Please ignore all my gallons of paint sitting on the hearth. I was using those to set the legs of the dresser on so I could paint and varnish the bottom of the legs.


I am very happy with the way it turned out. I am seriously thinking about getting me a piece of glass cut for the top of the dresser and the top of the chest to protect it.


Please do let me know what you think. I love comments! Thank you all for your advise on which mirror or mirrors to use! :) I LOVE this piece!!!!

Oh and one more thing, I know I will be asked so those things under the dresser, they are picture frames. ;) My cousin makes them and she wanted my sister and I to pick us out one and my sister gave me hers because she didn’t have a place to put it and this wasn’t her style of decorating either. I wanted them painted to match the bedroom and bathroom so I had to put one more coat of paint on them, which was done since I took the pic. Our dog would be trampling on them if they were out where he could. ;)

And the floor covering is coming hopefully next week some time. YESSSSS


Here is a before shot of the dresser AND the mirrors.

ohhhh so pretty! Beautiful job! I love the handles on the drawers and then I wondered if you had considered trying those glass knobs? I'm hooked on those, too. I can't wait to see your bedroom!
