Welcome back my Beauties!
Sorry its been so long.
I have been working on plenty of stuff, just out of practice for taking enough pics to make a blog post!
In fact on this one I didn't take a full BEFORE picture because I was so excited to get started.
I had already cleaned the drawer fronts and added new hardware before I even started to take pics.
You can see from the one I have that the base of this vintage dresser was in sad sad shape.
The drawers were o.k.; they just needed some cleaning and loving.
But it was missing all the hardware minus the keyhole covers.
I had purchased these cup pulls a while back and was saving them.
I wanted something shiny to go with the dresser makeover so I removed the keyhole covers and the new hardware and cleaned them all and got ready to paint them.

I knew I was going to go with some rich paint color so I wanted a rose gold to accent the piece.
I picked Rustoleums Rose gold spray paint and gave them two coats.

While the hardware was drying I gave the base a good scuffing and sanding and wiped it all down.

Once that was done I could start coating the base.
I picked General Finishes Milk paint in Westminster green to play off the vintage style of the piece.

Look at how great the rose gold plays off the dark wood and deep green paint!

I love it and for a second thought about where I could put it in my house, but then I remembered I already have too many dressers :)

So there you have it. 
One of the many makeovers I have been working on the last few months!
I was looking through some other makeovers and was shocked to see that there was still snow on the ground in some of them.
I am not ready to look at snow again for a while, so I will do those posts LATER!

If you missed any of the last few makeovers you can see them Below.

It makes me feel a little better to know I did accomplish a few posts during this crazy time!
Until next time,
Stay Healthy 
and have a BEAUTIFUL day!
