This past week, B and I did a quick and easy DIY makeover – this has been in the works for a few years now. B had these sort of hideous black shiny dressers with golden knobs. Although not that pretty, super functional and great to have. So we finally refinished and painted them! The knobs got updated too, the cheapest route – because if any of you know knobs/light covers, etc. are the most expensive items that add up quickly! If we wanted to replace all of the knobs it could cost almost $200 (on the high-end)… not the point of an easy, inexpensive DIY.
We grabbed some spray paint and started sanding to get as much of the shine off as possible. The sanding was probably the hardest part – B tackled this like a champ. I was the go-to spray painter – after two coats they were good to go! Not only are they more our style, but they open up our room so much more, we no longer have these glaring shiney black pieces staring at us! I bought a table runner to place on top so that our TV and items won’t mess up the new paint.
It was such an easy, and relatively inexpensive update, we are both so happy with the way it turned out.
