If you have been following me on Instagram 
then you know what emotions I have been going through the last few weeks and whats been occupying my time. 
But I have finished with closing up my mommas house and am now home and trying to finally get into my regular routine.
One of those routines is BLOGGING, so today I am finally back with a makeover.
You can see from the top picture one of many reasons this dresser needed a makeover.

The most prominent being the missing drawer glide.
You can see by the picture how the drawer just DROPPED down into the space of the bottom drawer because it had nothing to stop it.
I knew I could fix it pretty easily so I grabbed from the thrift shop and brought it home.

My simple fix for this problem was a piece of scrap lumber and my Ryobi Airstrike Nailer

I cut a piece of scrap wood the size of the old glide and nailed it into place. Easy Peasy!

You can see here from the side view how the drawer now sits evenly supported in place.
Once I had the drawer fixed I could move on to the fun part of the makeover....Paint.
I didn't have the time to go out and get new hardware as I was finishing this project 2 days before I left for Florida.
I decided to use Copper Spray paint and just give the old hardware a new look with a new finish.

While that was drying, I gave the dresser a couple coats of  a custom green paint on the base and a dark chocolate on the top.
Since I wanted to give this a BOHO vibe I decided to add some copper feathers to the fronts.
I just used a Large Feather Stencil and some Copper craft paint to add the detail to the fronts.
I LOVED how it made the dresser fronts POP!
Green and Copper has always been one of my favorite color combos!
