Here is my daughter's new turquoise dresser.
This is the original cream coloured dresser we purchased secondhand about a year ago.
So I've finally a year later got around to making it pretty. :) First of all I gave it a white undercoat.
I mixed up a gorgeous shade of turquoise using flat white paint, mixed with blue, yellow and green acrylic paint. All of which I had in my paint stash. :)
I also gave the cute little drawer knobs a spray of white paint. They originally had been a shiny silver metal. I was going to totally replace them, but the white is perfect.
Then I distressed all the edges and gave the entire piece a light sand. I'll also give it a coat of clear gloss when I can get to the hardware to purchase some more. :)
I love it!
