Baby Blue Tallboy Dresser

Hiiiiiii Everyone!

I am super excited to share this makeover with you guys because I seriously think it is my favorite piece I have ever done!  We need to get right into it because I am so excited!!


(The paint used in this post was so kindly sent to me by the team over at Country Chic Paint, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!)
I picked up this guy off of Facebook Marketplace and new immediately that I wanted to keep the top drawer raw wood, I don't know why, but I just knew!

I started off by cleaning the piece really well and removing all of the old wooded knobs!  I sanded down the top drawer to reveal this gorgeous raw wood underneath!

I patched up some scratches and knicks in the wood and sanded that out with some 120 grit sand paper.  We brought this baby inside to my workshop and it was time to primer with my BIN Primer.

I never used to prime unless I was doing white paint, but let me tell you, priming has changed the game for me and gives me such a better fool proof finish on my pieces.  

Even though it is an extra step, and sometimes not always necessary, I will continue to do it on most occasions to get the perfect finish!

I did 2 coats and sanded it out with 220 grit sandpaper to make it super smooth!

Now its time for paint.  I loaded up my Homeright Paint sprayer with my Country Chic Paint in Belle of the Ball, thinned with a bit of water, and got to spraying.  I did 3 total coats of this pretty pale blue paint.

After the paint was totally dry, I sealed with my water based poly, doing 3 coats! I also sealed the raw wood drawer with this as well :)

I put on my pretty gold knobs from D Lawless hardware and this beauty was done!

Here are her Beauty Shots! :)

Let me know what you guys think of this little cutie.  I love it so much and I wish I had somewhere in my house for it, but I am sure it will go to a great home soon!
