My kids dresser needed a major makeover. I could not stand looking at their blue dresser anymore since I got them new beds for their new shared room (their bed frames are black). So I decided to attempt the whole black paint thing.
Honestly the kids dresser has gone through a lot of life. It was actually my husbands dresser when he was a baby so it’s over 30 years old. Yes I know I should just get a new one but there’s structurally nothing wrong with the dresser. It was just plain. It’s a solid oak wood dresser that I chalked painted blue which originally matched my older sons nursery but now no longer matches the boys shared room.
I am no stylist so don’t judge the horrible decorating. I used ready to use black paint from Walmart. Added 2 coats and added brass/gold handles from ikea.
It’s not perfect by any means but I’m pretty satisfied with how it came out.
*Also the wet mark on the top left drawer is wet paint. My 2 year old decided to chuck a monster truck at the dresser right before I took the picture so I did a quick touch up of paint. I was too lazy to wait for it to dry before taking a picture 🙂
