One of my favorite things about painting furniture is that I get to use some of the pieces until they sell. I love changing things out. It's a win win for me and my hubby. I get new stuff all the time, and he doesn't have to pay for it!
One of my favorite pieces was the little chunky night stand that I had put a 1,2,3 on. It sold the first day, so I didn't get a chance to decorate with it. When I saw this dresser, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!
I used two coats of my favorite white paint. Dove White by Valaspar. I find that it is the perfect white for me. Then using a sharpie, I drew on the numbers. Next I distressed it using 150 grit sandpaper. After that I gave it a coat of wax.
I kept the original hardware. I just painted it to match. I think it was the right decision. I went back and forth about keeping it. In the end it came down to not wanting to fill the holes and having to drill new ones.
I found this really cute paper at the Dollar Tree. I have been waiting to use it. I love the green and white together.
