Simple Fix and So Pretty!

 Don't you love it when you do a little project and it turns out so well?


 Remember the dresser we found on Craigslist for my youngest daughter's room? I'm not sure if you can tell from this cropped and enlarged grainy photo, but the pulls were gold and desperately needed painting.

 Well, I finally got around to painting them with Rustoleum's Silver Metallic paint and they came out great!



I hope you can tell how much lighter and brighter the newly painted hardware makes the dresser feel ~ even in a photo taken on a dreary day!

I'm going to have to find something else to paint with the silver metallic because it's so pretty!

Hope you have something fun planned for this weekend!

  3. You're right, I just love it when a plan comes together.
    They do brighten it up! Looks great and cheaper than new pulls.

  4. Very nice! Is it a spray paint you used or did you brush it on? I haven't had any luck with any of the metallic sprays I've purchased.

    I have my 2nd yogalates class this afternoon but other than that no plans. The weather is AWFUL & I just want to curl up with a book! Have a great weekend.

  7. Pam, that looks great and I love the whole vignette on top. Just perfect with the shutters propped there. I noticed the price tag on the bottom of the clock. lol
