Since I have been on a DIY kick lately (see refinished dresser and farmhouse hutch!), I started searching craigslist and profit stores, looking for the perfect dresser or table to turn into a console table. After a couple weeks of not finding anything, I was getting oh really nettled because 1.) I really wanted to take the tv down, and 2.) I wanted our living office to keep circuit in the right direction. Then, on a whim I decided to stop into this thrift store we were surpassingly one Saturday, and found the PERFECT dresser. Sure, it was missing some hardware, and one of the drawers was fully broken and jammed inside, but I had a vision. We choice it up the next day and I got to work!

Thanks, Dezzy! I used the color sprayer to paint the dresser. I used the cheapo trundle to paint the boards that made up the shelf because I had painted the dresser with the sprayer days before and it wasn’t desert it to me to destroy out the sprayer, mix the paint, and usage the sprayer so I opted for the cheapo roller. I necessity the same primer and thinner (Penetrol). Hope that makes sense!

Hi Chelsea, I was reading your post about your dresser-devote-TV console and I had a few questions. Let me start by saying the piece face beautiful! I sketch a lot of furniture out here in California and defect to more about the Floetral and Penetral (sp?). Now, I do have Floetral in my “tool kit”, but I have to admit I don’t use it that much. I guess my question is this…When your painting and or primering do you follow the manufacturer’s directions for the additive exactly or do you “apple” how much you pouring in? For exmaple, I’m currently painting a credenza and I pour my primary into a tray without mensurative how much I put in. How have are you with measuring the additive to the paint/rprimer ratio? In that same post, I also remark that you painted the dresser with a sprayer. Me and the sprayer have not been good friends. I bought one from Home Depot to use with our gas compressor and had terrible luck with it. Could you tell me a bit more approximately the Harbor Freight one you have? I have a Harbor Freight right around the angle from me. Just stumbled onto your blog today and loved looking at all your re-do’s. I will definitely add your blog to the listen of blogs I read. Thank you, Katherine

Definitely easiest to delineate the dresser with the shelves out, lots of tasteless areas to hit with the roller.  Shelves got painted while beyond, both sides to keep it looking as neat as possible.
