I found this set of dressers at a consignment shop for a great deal! (see here)
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them for my bedroom!
I took off all the hardware first.
I love the handles, but I was a couple short!
I did all sorts of research to find out if I could get more or even have some made.
In the end, I found some vintage brass ones on etsy that didn't match exactly but would work perfect for one of the dressers.
Here's the steps I took:
Sprayed the handles ORB
Removed all the drawers (14 TOTAL!)
Washed and prepared them for priming
Spray-primed them with Kilz
Spray-painted a couple coats of Krylon Ivory Gloss
used the same brown glaze from my nightstands
And finally, a few coats of polycrylic!
And that was just the drawers...
I ended up stripping and sanding just the tops of the dressers so I could stain them
I used red mahogany stain so the tops would match my headboard/footboard and tie them together.
I taped the top part off, then primed, painted, glazed and poly'd the rest!
(then did the same thing to the mirror)
I LOVE the way they turned out!
Here's some up close goodness of the glazed details:
