Whatever Wednesday: Another Dresser Makeover

Recently my two oldest boys moved into the same room together, so we needed a dresser for their clothes. I found one at a garage sale that looked pretty good, but was a little girly. So of course I painted it.

Here it is before (sorry this is such a bad picture)

And here is the after. I wanted to paint it all black but my son wanted blue, so I went with it and I really like the blue. I used chalkboard paint on the drawers so they can draw on it.

Oh how I love paint and how it can really transform anything!!

Looks great! I have like 5 pieces of furniture that I need to find the motivation for refinishing! Love the chalkboard paint on the drawers!

I've been looking for a fun new look for my girls' dresser. I think I am going to paint it chalkboard black and hot pink! Thanks for the inspiration!

Very nice! Love the combo of those colors.

I really like the idea of putting chalkboard paint on the drawers. My son has the toughest time remember which drawer houses the shirts vs. the shorts vs. the undies. I should cut him some slack though - he's only had it for 8 years! ;)

Great idea using the chalkboard paint!

I love it. Absolutely cool. Perfect for boys. I am SO itching to use chalkboard paint at my house and haven't come up with the right project. It hadn't occurred to me to use it on furniture - great idea!
