So over a year ago I bought a cute dresser for $10 at a yard sale. Yesterday I sold Livi's old dresser/changing table and today we set about to paint the used dresser and refinish the drawer pulls (she wants Scooby Doo ones but I think she's out of luck). Her color of choice? Grape Popsicle. I've never done this before. It's drying in the driveway right now - before and after pics later!

Have you refinished furniture? Share pics!

I'm in the middle of doing it! I found this desk curbside in my town:

The paint was really thick and uneven so I had to sand it down. I just finished the sanding today. But now it looks like it might rain, so I'm going to paint it later in the week. I'll post pics when I'm done for sure.

Appifanie, can I be best friends with Livie? She likes my two favorite things: Scooby Doo and purple!

Joyfulgirl, I can't wait to see the finished product.

joyful - at first i thought that's what you did, and i was like "okay, whatever" but now i realize that's how you found it and i am JEALOUS.

mo - her 2 fav colors are red and pink - i asked her what color she wanted to paint the dresser and she said purple! i just agreed because i figured it'll look cool in her future pink room. and of course you can!!! especially if you deliver a strawberry scooby doo cake to us by tuesday. but even if you don't, you can be.

haha I felt bad sanding it at first because it's really cute. It's exactly the way I wanted my room painted when I was 12. But I'm not 12 anymore, so off it went. The wood underneath is really nice. I kind of feel bad painting over it. I totally lucked out.

Before (on the left) -

After (it's technically a changing table and I painted it funny so I'm waiting for it to dry and I have to touch it up before I fold it back up and finish the painting) -

I found a wooden crate on the sidewalk tonight that I'm going to turn into a jewellery stand type thing. I've cleaned it (was covered and dirt and bird feathers. EW.) and next is sanding and painting...I'll post before and after pictures when I'm done!

ETA: My flatmate and I fixed up these shelves last month. Her dad sent her a bunch of stuff and decided to build the box himself (???) and this was the base. We unscrewed it from the bottom, sanded it a bit and that's all!

Wow!! I just loved these beautiful painting furniture images. It looks so beautiful and classy. You know recently, I bought my bedroom furniture from Marlo Furniture Stores Near Alexandria at very reasonable price.
