The other day I was at a meeting that was right across from a Goodwill Store, so I decided to drop in to see what kind of random stuff they have for sale. I was looking for a good chair that I could have re-upholstered to use in Josh's office, but I came across this small dresser instead. It looked pretty sad and was in need of some TLC, but it was still in good condition overall. I saw it's potential and it was only $25, so I bought it!
This past week, I started on my project to refinish this dresser and make it into something great! I purchased some high gloss black paint ($10), and some new hardware for the drawers ($9). I had all the painting supplies that I needed, and borrowed some polyurethane (the top coat) from Allison.
Each coat of paint took 2 days to fully dry because it was in my garage and it has been so humid lately. Once that was dry, I slapped on a coat of polyurethane, and then added the hardware. Josh found the perfect spot for it in our bedroom and it totally coordinates with our existing bedroom furniture!
The final product!
Not too shabby for a $44 project, huh?
