New Project: Dresser

Two nights ago I decided to put together a random shelving unit (tiny, just for my desk). I find that painting or screwing things together is a nice way to spend an evening.

This weekend’s project (actually, tonight’s project) is going to be priming and repainting my new dresser.

I’ve been living out of plastic drawers- and boxes- for the last year, and I found this great retro looking dresser on Craigslist for $5.

This is the closet thing I could find... the one I purchased is white with no hardware.

I’m going to be keeping the outside white, but I’m going to paint the 6 shelves in different colors. I have this really nice flat grey, and I’m going to compliment that with sky blue, butter yellow and mint green.

I’m picking it up later today, and at that point I’ll decide on hardware. I’m thinking something like silver pull knobs…
