Little Blue Dresser

So I was perusing my local Value Village back in mid March and I came across a 6 drawer dresser. It was the perfect size for our master bedroom. Although, it's sad green and white paint and brass knobs did nothing for me, it had great bones and the $25 dollar price tag wasn't bad either! So after convincing the only person I knew who owned a truck to meet me at the store (my grandma) thanks gran! I took this baby home to live with me.



My inspiration for our bedroom was for it to have a beachy cottage feel to it. So naturally I was drawn to a cool grayish blue color for my dresser. I found the perfect shade from Valspar's Seaside Retreat called Atlantic Gray. It's muted tone was PERFECT! for my project. Naturally, I couldn't have it stay just the pretty blue color. I had to put a Little Miss Vintage spin on it by antiquing it with a mixture of black paint and polyurethane I picked up at none other than my town's one store... Walmart, yes my town is that small.

I painted the black color on then took a rag and would wipe some off until it started to have the look I was wanting. This was quite the process, being a novice to antiquing and all. I then took a hammer and nail to it to give it a beat up look to it. But my absolute favorite thing I picked up for my dresser was the glass knobs I got at Lowe's. So cute, I love glass knobs they are the perfect accessory.

VoilĂ ! Perfection. I'm so happy with how this project turned out, I could just squeal with excitement. {Don't worry, I'll spare you the dramatics }. Hope you like it as much as I do.
