Hey friends! I’m back to update you on our progress for the $100 Room Challenge! In week 1 I shared the before, then I shared the mood board, now I’m back to share the dresser that I made over for the closet!
This dresser was a steal for $30 at our local Habitat for Humanity Restore. In the store it had a beat up mirror attached to it, and I was able to negotiate the price down from $35 to $30 by not taking the mirror. It’s always worth trying!
**This post contains affiliate links** I used my favorite furniture paint, Amy Howard One Step Paint, in the color “Drama Queen”.
Because it’s still too cold to paint in the garage, I ended up tackling this one night in our kitchen once the kids were asleep. I started out by giving it a good cleaning, removing the hardware, and then using this paint brush to get to the spots that the roller couldn’t get to.
Then I used a mini-roller to roll two coats on the entire dresser.
Once it was done I used this chevron shelf liner that I had left over from other projects.
Replacing the middle pulls took $12 from my small $100 budget, but it was worth it to give this dresser a modern look.
At this point the closet is actually REALLY close to being finished, and I wasn’t ready to share everything, so I decided to photograph it in her bedroom.
I’m also totally obsessed with her wallpaper and couldn’t help but use it as the perfect photo backdrop. Altogether this dresser cost me $42 ($30 for the dresser and $12 for the pulls). I had the pink paint, gold spray paint, and shelf liner on hand, but if I would have had to purchase those it would have been an additional $45… sometimes being a DIY supply hoarder comes in handy! Either way, re-doing this dresser for $87 is a bargain and it has so much more personality than anything you could buy.
Next Wednesday I’ll be back to share her entire closet reveal! If you want to follow along with the other bloggers each transforming spaces for $100 you can follow see their spaces below!
