Here are some photos of our transformation in process.
We have painted our bedroom SW6477 Tidewater and the trim is high gloss enamel white along with the dresser(s).
We have had these dressers for almost 15 years now and purchased them originally from Lowe's and put a simple light honey stain one them when we first assembled them. They are solid wood, when I decided our room needed a major makeover I knew theses dressers were first on my list. We can not afford a lot, but paint and new knobs are within our budget and so I picked up the supplies and last week I began painting while our 2 younger Miracles were at school. I still have to paint #Mr's dresser but 1 down ;-) 1 more to go.
I found for the best result it was best to paint with door and cabinet small rollers and I did tape off with FROGTAPE (best stuff for painting period). The FROGTAPE gave me nice clean lines inside my drawers so I did not have to paint the whole interior of the drawers. I know that is lazy of me, but I use drawer liners anyway so I felt OK doing this. I also taped off the back panel of the dresser since it was not visible and would save me time in having a finished product.
Here is the rest of the bedroom, I truly do love this color in our bedroom, it is a lighter version of the color we have painted in the living room, but it's like sleeping in the sky it is just so peaceful. We still have many things to fix and settle into place but we have a game plan
We got rid of the curtains at our bedroom doors and frosted the windows and we LOVE it!! Wish we had done this a long long time ago. We found the product on the spray paint aisle at Lowe's and I don't think we paid more then $5 for it. The only bad part was the fumes. I suffer horribly from migraines and when my husband frosted the door panes I was in bad shape already and add to it the fumes from the spray paint and I was out for a few days afterwards. My recommendation is that if you take on this project for yourself and have the option, take your doors off the hinges and move the project outside, if that isn't an option, wait until a warm day and open up the house WIDE. (My husband did FROGTAPE off the door so that the frosting wouldn't over spray onto everything.) Overall this project was very quick and took a matter of a couple of hours with the taping taking a majoring of that time.Overstock.com). The carpet we will be replacing with two runners for either side of the bed. We have selected the Suzani Rug from Target (the pictures on their website are HORRIBLE for color) we plan on also using a larger area rug of this same design in the living room just outside our bedroom door.
The next step in our bedroom besides painting #Mr's dresser is building a headboard based on my inspiration headboard in this image.
