The Painted Dresser

Friday, February 4, 2011

I've been lusting over the idea of painting a Craigslist { find } dresser a pretty color. In the past I've painted our buffet in our dining room and our bedroom dresser both white. Both turned our so nice, its hard to go wrong painting a vintage price white. I've gone bolder when painting chairs { the bold bright yellow one in our living room, and the pretty blue vintage chair } however, I've yet to paint a dresser a pretty color. I found some pretty dressers that have given me plenty of inspiration to paint a vintage dresser and turn into a pretty elegant modern piece. 

I love this green painted dresser, its classic lines look amazing in color.

This pale blue dresser looks classic and simple. I love the thick knobs and the little key holes peeking though on each drawer.

By now I'm sure most of you have seen the pink painted dresser Nicole from Making It Lovely did for her daughters nursery. Isn't just darling! She chose the perfect pink for the dresser and truly transformed it.

Now I just need to find the perfect dresser to paint, or maybe give our buffet in our dinning room a little color makeover! With paint the possibilities are endless?

What;s the last painting project you tackled? Did you opt for color or played it safe?



  1. Fun makeovers! Yes, I think you definitely should consider painting your buffet a cool color! Maybe one of the colors from the bottom of your curtains?

  2. Elisa - I was thinking the same thing! Most likely it will be a muted color from the curtains :) Hopefully I'll start this project soon

  3. The green dresser is really cute! I know that Centsational Girl has some good painted furniture ideas and inspiration. But it looks like she's already on your blog list...

  4. I love to freshen up vintage pieces as well! I usually go with white, but recently we painted our kitchen island BM's Rose of Sharon. It is the palest of pinks and I love it!

  5. I love the white piece in your dining area, but think a pop of color would look really great and make it stand on it's own.

  6. Great idea! painting craig's list finds is so much fun! I painted a bookshelf white for my craft room. I really wanted it a light turquoise blue but was hesitant, and now I wish I would have done it! Good luck with yours :)

  7. I love pops of color, but I always find myself playing it safe. Just happened across your blog and am glad I stopped by.
