Dresser / Trinchador

A little makeover of an old dresser to use it in my girl’s bedroom. I bought this dresser in a garage sale. It originally has an the upper part with glass and mirror to display dinnerware. I took if of and only keep the bottom with the drawers. It was brown and ugly…not what you what to have in a little girl room. So I clean it, sand it and paint it. I also took of the handles off and, after a good clean, I spray painted them in pink.

*UPDATE* I’s been more than 6 years that I upgraded this dresser, and it’s still in my girl bedroom in perfect shape.

Una pequeña remodelación de una vieja cómoda para usarla en el dormitorio de mi niña. Compré esta cómoda en una venta de garaje. Originalmente tenia una parte superior con vidrio y espejo para exhibir vajillas. La quite y solo conserve la parte de abajo con los cajones. Era marrón y feo … no era lo que querias tener en una habitación de niña. Así que lo limpie, lo lije y lo pinte. También le quité las agarraderas y, después de una buena limpieza, las pinté de rosa.

* ACTUALIZACIÓN * Hace más de 6 años que pinte esta cómoda, y todavía está en el dormitorio de niña en perfecto estado.

What it’s looks like before:

    Oh my goodness, I am in LOVE. I never thought about adding just a pop of color with the handles. You have just changed my life 🙂

      Thank you! The color is cocoa brown from Berel paint…If you need the exact reference (numbers and letters)let me know, I must have it somewhere!

    I'm not a fan of brown so probably would have chosen a different color and painted some artwork inside the panels.

      I didn't thought about adding artwork … it could be interesting!

    Ama, what type of primer did you use? Also, did you sand it?

      Hi Ash,
      I sanded and cleaned it. Then I used a Berel paint primer "Fondo alquidálico blanco para madera" (sorry, don't know if you can find this brand outside Mexico). Then I sanded it lightly again (primer was a very thick paint). To finish, I applied two coat of color paint. That's it! Have a nice WE
