 u g l y   e a r l y  80's   d r e s s e r
&
u g l y  70's {or 60's?}   s h e l f

I have two quick makeovers of furniture purchased for my daughter's room. Both sanded, primed with a spray priming bonder, three coats of BM Simply White in Aura, and then sealed with a poly.

But first I wanted to show you some cute pillows I bought for my daughter Camden's room {I got these at the Farm Chicks show}.
The two velvet green and one velvet aqua are from the flea market.
I know the colors are a little crazy in this room...but she is 8 and loves it.

I bought both the shelf and dresser a few weeks ago and I have been working on them a little at a time while finishing other pieces for the shop.

{before}

I had a dresser just like this growing up in the 80's, pretty ugly!

{after}

I painted the pulls with Rustoleum's Leafy Green.

Here is the ugly shelf before.


 And after, much better.
Gotta love white paint, it makes everything better.
