Introduction

A good friend of mine gave me some furniture that belonged to her daughter. Right away, I had a big weakness for a simple dresser, but very, very, very colourful. I immediately thought of making a dresser for my youngest child’s bedroom. The one he had at the time was way too high for my little man and his 25th percentile so he couldn’t make it to the top drawer. I will therefore explain to you, how I proceeded with the makeover of a kids dresser!

 

 

Step 1 – Cleaning the Dresser

For the preparation of the dresser, I applied Colorantic varnish remover. I waited about 20 minutes and then wiped down the surface. A good sanding after and I was finally ready to tackle the paint!

 

Step 2 – Applying the chalk based paint

Three coats were necessary in order to achieve a perfect finish. I originally intended to paint the drawers another colour, but Summer Storm blue was so rich and perfect that I decided to make the entire dresser in that colour. I knew that with the silver handles, the finish would be chic and elegant. Obviously, I took the trouble to sand lightly between each coat in order to have a clean finish.

 

Step 3 – Varnishing the dresser

For the finish, I carefully applied 2 coats of matte varnish, sanding between coats.

Conclusion

This project is very easy to do for a beginner like me. A little patience, elbow grease and thoroughness and you too can complete a kids dresser makeover! My son, for one, loves his new dresser.

To come, a work desk for his bedroom as well as an accent wall with this famous Summer Storm because as he says “This colour is cool!” “.
