I’m so excited to kick off this new year by partnering with Behr on a project for their Behr Designer Stories series on the Behr.com website. My project for the series was all about taking a $5 Goodwill dresser from drab to fab in one weekend with Behr paint, and I’m thrilled with the results.
When we lived in Illinois I found this awesome vintage Ethan Allen dresser at a local Goodwill shop for just $5. Sadly, it sat in our basement for months and eventually made it’s way down to North Carolina with us, with the hopes that I would find the time to give it a makeover. When Behr approached me to do a project for their Designer Stories series, I knew that the old dresser would be the perfect candidate and that it would finally get a much needed facelift.
We live in a small home, with limited storage options, so the dresser is the perfect piece to makeover so that we could store our extra clothing. It was in fair condition, with a lot of surface scratches and it sat low to the ground, but it was solid (and did I mention cheap!), so all it really needed was a fabulous new paint color and 4 sturdy legs to give it a brand new look.
To get a fresh new look for this diamond-in-the-rough dresser, I chose Behr Premium Plus® Interior Satin Enamel Paint & Primer In One in “Sea Ice”. It’s my new favorite color!
I love that I was able to completely transform this beat up $9 Goodwill dresser into a beautiful piece of furniture with paint. Not only is it beautiful but it gives us the space we need to store extra clothing. A win-win! If you head over to the Behr website you can see my completed project, here.
