Welcome back my Beauties! 
How the heck have you been?
We have been navigating these crazy times and just trying to 
adjust our sails on a daily basis.
Thankfully a few days ago the weather cooled a bit and I was able to knock out some projects.
I haven't spent a lot of time this summer writing up posts because honestly, just surviving seems to be enough of an accomplishment on its own.
But I still love a good makeover and hopefully you do too!
So let's get going.
I picked up this vintage little cutie at the thrift shop for a steal.
I loved that it was in really great shape and only needed a little bit of loving.
It was plain but I knew a little paint would perk it right up.

I got to work on lightly sanding the whole thing down.
Then I wiped it down with warm water.
I wanted to make sure the paint properly adhered.

Once I had that done I picked my paint.
Now if you know me I am NOT a big PINK person, but this color is so subtle I just love it for giving a piece some quiet color.
You may remember the cute little GOSSIP BENCH I did in that color.  You can see that HERE.
So I got to work painting the dresser.
While it was drying I grabbed some old hardware and gave it a clean.

Once it was clean I gave it a couple coats of Rustoleaum Copper metallic spray paint.

Once that was finished and the paint had dried on the dresser I had decided that it needed just a little subtle POP of something to liven up the flat and plain front.
I grabbed my Deco art Winter Wreath stencil and some White General Finishes Milk paint and painted on this simple wreath.

I love that it added something simple but made the front a bit less plain.

I am also happy to say that it sold pretty quickly.
This plain ole piece is now livin its best life in a new home.
