Turquoise Dresser Restyled

Here is my daughter's new turquoise dresser.  

This is the original cream coloured dresser we purchased secondhand about a year ago. 

So I've finally a year later got around to making it pretty. :)  First of all I gave it a white undercoat.  

I mixed up a gorgeous shade of turquoise using flat white paint, mixed with blue, yellow and green acrylic paint.  All of which I had in my paint stash. :)

I also gave the cute little drawer knobs a spray of white paint.  They originally had been a shiny silver metal.  I was going to totally replace them, but the white is perfect.

Then I distressed all the edges and gave the entire piece a light sand.  I'll also give it a coat of clear gloss when I can get to the hardware to purchase some more. :)

I love it!  

:) Julie
