Yellow Dresser

This project has been complete for a few months now, just haven't gotten around to posting it. It was a fun one though. We got a headboard and a dresser from my Grandma's bedroom set. The headboard is in the guest bedroom and it got painted green shortly after we moved in to our house.

The dresser didn't come to our house until the last year or so, and finally got around to deciding on a location for it, along with a paint color. We (okay I) decided that something bright and fun would really be nice in our downstairs (mancave) living room. Yellow was the winner! I'm loving it!

Here's how it was looking before ( the chair next to it is from this project)
The dresser looks pretty blah and boring here now, but functional since it holds all of our DVD's and Wii games.

Close up of the priming process (decided to spray prime shortly after this). Wish that we could have found a yellow that we liked in spray too - of course, no such luck.

Final product. Love the bright yellow color. I kept the same hardware, just spray painted them an oil rubbed bronze color - like how they turned out also. 

As you can see from the original photo, this dresser didn't have feet. A few weeks after we painted it, I felt like it looked so heavy without feet, and we had remembered we had four feet from our bathroom vanity that we removed because it would have been too tall with feet. Plus, I'd been seeing a lot of gals adding feet to dressers in the blog world - loved the look. Really like how it lifts and lightens this piece up. The round legs really go well with the scroll design (that were a HUGE pain to paint) in the drawers of this piece.

Realized that I haven't posted any photos of this room since we've moved it. It's come a long way, but it has a really long way to go still. But it's certainly livable for now.

We're still looking to:
take out the (cement?) tile
replace flooring with a laminate wood - thick 6 inch barnwood plank looking style
buy barstools
new sectional
