This dresser stuck out like a sore thumb at a local thrift store and I have to admit, I almost didn’t bother looking at it because it’s so not my style. At first glance, I thought it was something a dad had made for one of his little kids The combination of baby blue and bright green was enough to make me grab for my sunglasses.
I didn’t care for the extremely high gloss finish on it, but that’s just me. Retro just isn’t my style – AT ALL – but it had a great price on it, so I started checking it out. What I discovered is, it was very well made dresser. The entire piece is well built and definitely not homemade. The metal seal on the inside reads “Tri-Bond Furniture III”.
Long story short, it came home with me. We took a vote online for color choices and after all the votes came in, we decided on a classic white. Check out the difference a little paint makes…
Cathy mixed up her own custom white using paint leftover from other projects then sprayed everything to give it a clean, crisp new look. It was sealed with several coats of Old Town Paint’s Gloss Clear Coat and here she is!
Easy come, easy go… I just found out this piece has left the building.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
