I just love paint. This plate was old, tired and just plain ugly.
But with one simple (or actually two) coats of paint (the colour is named “kalk”), it looked so fresh. I deliberately gave it that shabby chic look. Here’s a before and after.
But the dresser was easy to make new, so I decided to give it a makeover. I gave it a extra coat of paint to cover the twigs, then started to paint the dresser light grey (the name of the colour is “kalk”). I searched many places before I found the glass knobs I was looking for. And that was really it. I absolutely love my dresser and love that it’s one of a kind.
Was it cheaper than Ikea? Probably not. Was it more fun? Absolutely. Here some before-during- and after photos.
