Furniture Make-over: Blue Chest of Drawers

Another furniture makeover... I wanted to do this one forever and finally did it- yay!
HERE IS THE BEFORE:

I had this little chest of drawers for about the last 15 years. I paid way too much for it, at a chain furniture store- but at the time I needed some furniture. It had some cheap-o knobs on it that about fell off every time you opened the drawers.
So we gave it a new life - {we means my husband helped me a lot- as usual :)}
We kept this one very simple:

We used KRYLON spray paint and primer. The primer was white, and the paint color is called  KRYLON BLUE OCEAN BREEZE. 
 And now it looks much better:


Here are my other furniture makeovers- the fun never ends!

*Yellow End Tables
*Pottery Barn Heirloom Frames
*China Hutch turned Bookshelf
*Yellow octagon table
*Bunk bed Make-over
*Red Sewing Desk
*Play kitchen from a nightstand
*Nightstand make-overs
*Kitchen Table re-do
*A few chairs
OK that list makes me tired. And that isn't everything.  Most of our furniture comes from one of these places- Thrift stores, Target, Pier One, or IKEA. I don't have the money for the expensive stuff. But you don't have to spend a lot to get the look you want. :)

And don't faint, but I'm linking this post to Centsational Girl Paint Projects Linky Party: {I don't link very often, but I'm trying to do better...:)} Go check out the around 500 amazing projects linked up over there! You will be so inspired, amazed, and you might faint because of the amazing creativity that is out there. :) Have fun!!
