A French Provincial Dresser DIY

How to Take Your Dresser From Drab to Fab


Su Casa member leahlarocca found this incredible French provincial dresser on Craigslist. It has a beautiful shape, but its grubby yellow finish was dated and drab. She wanted a show-stopping piece, so she ended up spray painting it silver and painting the trim gold. Now the dresser is seriously glamorous!

It looks awesome! What did you do to it, though, to prevent the color from coming off? In my experience, silver spray paint comes off a bit. I once tried a clear top coat and some reaction occurred which made the silver spray paint liquid again, and it subsequently started to bubble and run.

Wow, thank you!!!! I used "nickel" colored spray paint from Lowe's. The best metallic paint I've found that doesn't come in a spray can is the Ralph Lauren collection at Home Depot. For the trim, I went to a Joann store and they had a pretty big selection of metallic paints there.

So cute. I love silver, and I think that if you have the glam "mirrored" look going on in your room, it would fit perfectly. Or if you have a nice walk in closet, it could glam up that space too!

I definitely like the original better. But I'm more of a traditional kind of girl.
