Thrifting an Old Dresser Using Fushion Mineral Paint
If you’ve been a reader here for a while, you’ll know that painting thrift store furniture is something I do for just about every room makeover I do. It’s a great way to get affordable furniture that looks amazing and custom in a space. So let’s talk about how to paint a dresser.
And you guys, I just discovered the BEST paint for easy furniture makeovers. I wanted a matte gray paint for a dresser makeover in our bathroom and decided to try a new brand to me: Fusion Mineral Paint. And spoiler? It blew me away.
If you keep your eyes peeled on Kijiji, Faceook Buy and Sell groups, or just on garbage day, you will undoubtedly come across a major furniture score before too long. A solid wood dresser is always a great investment.
I recently came across this pretty dresser for $40, and knew it was going to be perfect for our bathroom makeover.
I have some tips on what to look for when thrifting a piece of furniture, but I'll save that for the whole post...
Supplies You'll Need:
- Fusion Mineral Paint in Sterling
- Fusion Mineral Paint Brush
- Fusion Mineral Ultra Grip – this is only required if you are painting on laminate or some other kind of glossy surface that will be hard to cover
Usually dressers just need a little clean up and TLC. I have tried many different paints before for furniture. Chalk paints, regular latex paint, the works. Fusion Mineral Paint was new to me, but I had heard so many blogger friends chatting about it and wanted to give it a try.
Let me tell you - I loved it for several reasons!
