A few days ago you may remember I made this post about my plans to paint my bedroom dresser teal. Most of the process went pretty smoothly and I’m happy with the finished look.
I spray painted the dresser with Rustoleum in Lagoon. I think this shade of teal is just lovely and will complement my gray walls well.
I decided to keep the original hardware for now to save money. I tried to polish them, but a few were badly tarnished. I even enlisted the help of our 7-year-old godchildren (they’re twins too!). By the way, I do not endorse child labor. They wanted to help.
The hardware started out pretty badly as you can see and after the failed attempt at polishing I decided to just spray paint it with Krylon Brilliant Gold. The gold was a little too bright for me so I just rubbed some black craft paint into the details and wiped it away. It gives it the antique vibe I was looking for.
At the introduction of this post I mentioned how smoothly the project went…well I lied. There was a potential major setback that occurred as I was finishing up the last dresser drawer. RAIN! The forecast called for a 30% chance of rain…
Even Breeze was perplexed. Thankfully, I was able to get the dresser inside before the heavy downpour. It delayed the project by a day, but all’s well that ends well.
