From Traditional to Modern: Master Bedroom Furniture Makeover

Why spend the money on new bedroom furniture when you can simply transform your current set with a fresh coat of paint and new hardware!

I removed the old hardware and completely sanded the nightstand, dresser and mirror. For the paint I chose Valspar flat black. I used a small foam roller to paint the large surfaces and a brush for the detailed areas. Be careful with the paint job until it fully cures so you won't get any knicks or scratches (about 7 days).

Entire makeover cost around $50 for paint and supplies, then another $50 for the hardware.

Makeover was completed about a year and a half ago and still looks great!

    You can fill in the holes with wood putty and sand down. Then drill new holes. I've done this technique with plenty of furniture makeovers! You can't tell at all where the previous holes were.

    Lovely re-do. I would have cut the metal scroll work off and added a piece of molding to give it a more modern look.
