I’ve been holding on to an old pine dresser that we bought from Eddie Bauer about 21 years ago. It was very beaten up and definitely not going to match my new bedroom decor (full makeover post to come). However, we do use it, so it has to stay! Therefore, I decided on a dresser makeover to match the new trim in our bedroom, and add some antique charm to it, of course!
I used a quart of C2 gloss Alabaster White paint, C2 One Primer interior/exterior, and a paintbrush.
I like the Alabaster white, as it has a bit of an antique look to it. It’s not a stark white.
I painted one coat of C2 Primer on first, let it dry for about 3 hours, and then applied the first coat of the C2 Alabaster paint.
It appeared quickly that after the first coat, it was going to need a few more. 5 to be exact!
I waited about an hour only between coats for it to dry. And 24 hours before I brought it inside.
After 5 coats of paint, there was still a half of a quart left! Bonus for later bedroom projects…
I ordered 2 of Rugjut 6pcs Kitchen Replacement Antique Brass Cabinet Cupboard Pulls. These knobs are no longer available unfortunately so I found a replacement for them here. Drawer Dresser Ring Handle Knobs from Amazon to replace the existing wooden knobs.
I thought I might stencil the drawers, but I really liked the clean look of it without any stenciling.

This was really an easy project, however, it’s things like this that remind us how simple it can be to transform a piece of furniture that we already have into something new like this dresser makeover.
