grey and white dresser

I used the beautiful weather to catch up on some furniture (as well as work on parent/teacher conferences...bleck!)

I found this dresser on craigslist. I may be behind the times (as usual) but I'm loving grey right now.

I've been working on this grey dresser for a while now, but the weather hasn't cooperated.




 
So after a beautiful Sunday, I was finally able to finish.
 
 
 
This dresser started off with a very ugly laminate top and some outdated handles.
 




 
A little Kilz, grey paint, and a fresh coat of white on the handles has made this so fresh!
 
Again, not for sale in the store It's being saved for something special :( You'll hear why soon...Promise!!!
 
Here's the Before Meets After!

I love it! I was just thinking about you over the weekend. We have some furniture I am' not a fan of. It has a shiny black laminate on it. A few of the pieces have some lamintate chipping off. Do you have tips on what I can do to re-do them? Can you take the laminiate off or is that not a good idea? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated?

Pretty shade of gray! This darn winter weather makes it tough on us painters! It's a beautiful finish now.

Looks great! I'm currently struggling with not-so-descent weather & not having enough time to work in the evenings to get my personal dresser done! Mother nature can be frustrating at times!

I love white and Grey shade of neutral colors and lovely dresser. This is nice transformation after painting. Thanks a lot for the time and energy that you've been putting into writing your article. I leave comments not too often, but sometimes it just needs to be said.
