Here is the pine dresser before. It used to match a bedroom set, however we replaced the bed and it no longer matched the bedroom.
Bedroom Dresser Makeover
I've been holding on to an old pine dresser that we bought from Eddie Bauer about 21 years ago. It was very beaten and definitely not going to match my new bedroom decor. However, we do use it, so it has to stay! Therefore, I decided to paint it to match the new trim in our bedroom, and add some antique charm to it, of course!
Pine Dresser Before
I used a quart of C2 gloss Alabaster White paint, C2 One Primer interior/exterior, and a paintbrush.I like the Alabaster white, as it has a bit of an antique look to it. It's not a stark white.
I painted one coat of C2 Primer on first, let it dry for about 3 hours, and then applied the firstcoat of the C2 Alabaster paint.
After 5 coats of paint, there was still a half of a quart left! Bonus for later bedroom projects...

Bedroom Dresser Makeover After
This was really an easy project, however, it's things like this that remind us how simple it can be totransform a piece of furniture that we already have into something new!
