Barn Find Complete - Rob & Megan

Our $25.00 thrift barn find is complete.  Here is the dresser two weeks ago right after I bought it. It instantly became the catch all for the other projects.
Here is the dresser after Rob sanded it down. There was a lot of wood putty used to fix the corners that were in bad shape.  The back leg was broken too, so that was fixed as well.



We used the same Valspar Woodlawn Colonial Gray that we used on the china cabinet project earlier.  Then Rob added a simple two stripe design on the left side using leftover white paint and sample size Valspar's Pale Butter paint.


Here is the final product.  Don't you love the chalk drawings on our driveway to go along with it?  That's what we spent this beautiful 75 degree day doing while Rob finished up the dresser.


Dresser $25.00
Sample Paint $3.50

Total $28.50

Thanks for stopping by! 

Rob & Megan
