Decorating. Does. Not. Have. To. Be. Expensive. I can’t say that enough! (and yet I say it over and over☺) It really and truly doesn’t!
I have been working on redoing my Master bedroom (you can see a couple of earlier posts here and here) and this project for that room was a quick, cheap and easy one! ANYONE can do this one and make a boring, tired piece of old furniture (even IKEA furniture) into something that looks amazing!
I have had this IKEA dresser for a few years now and it is still functional so hated to get rid of it. I really do love the size and shape of it. However, it was really in need of… “something”.That “something” turned out to be a nice coat of paint. I whipped out my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® one day and give it a quick paint job! I didn’t move the dresser (just propped it up on some blocks) or prep it in any way, just went to town. I am soo glad that I did and it really was easy peasy. I put one, yes one, coat of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint® in Duck Egg Blue on the dresser and what a transformation. After painting, I didn’t even change the hardware because I loved how the dark hardware stood out on the beautiful blue paint. Check it out…What a difference and it took less than 2 hours and about a quarter of a quart of Chalk Paint®. I really do think that paint is one of the easiest and cheapest re-decorating tools and it doesn’t take much to make something old look new and beautiful again. Give it a try and let me know how your piece turned out!
