I found a great dresser while out and about a few weeks ago. It was a little dinged up but other than that, in great condition. I decided to give it an autumn inspired makeover! More on www.thepainteddrawer.com Here is the before. The dresser is a great size and the drawers are large for ample storage.
I also really liked the original hardware.
I used General Finishes Somerset Gold milk paint on the body. It is a warm mustard yellow color and looks great with the hardware.
I distressed the details and added a touch of gold paint to add some style. It looks pretty against the yellow paint.
One more close-up of the detail.
I sanded the wood top back and exposed the gorgeous grain.
I then stained it in a deep walnut that plays off the warmth of the paint color well.
Perfect colors for fall!

We didn't have much money, but I used what we had to brighten and freshen our 1990 Coleman Pop Up Camping Trailer! The before and afters are really my favorite. It was so drab and dull before. No life, no personality. We painted counters and cabinets, replaced the floor, spray painted the hardware, covered the bench seats and added new curtains.
We also had a fun and wild surprise pop up midway through our work that kind of put everything on hold until the proper professionals could lend a hand!
I did not remove the stove and sink to paint the countertops. I just didn't think I would ever get it back in properly, so I was very careful painting around everything and it looks great!
The comforter sets just brought bright colors and some life to the drab interior. I bought them first and then chose all of our paint colors, curtains, and accents from there.
I think the flooring made the biggest impact on the overall look of the camper. One box of adhesive tiles for $27 was all it took…
