I found this dresser set for my daughters bedroom a few weeks ago for cheap. Plus it was all wood. Only problem is that it was icky.
Dirty as in I think washing it was almost as good as painting it. Ick. The handles were not so great either. But I loved the pretty rope detailing.
Totally could see the potential even past the ugly pulls, dirt and gold detailing.
So I went and purchased this stuff. I chose this primer because it was the only can of primer that I could find that was in English. Plus the internet told me that it would work even on the laminate top part of the dresser.
I sanded the top down really well and just washed the rest of the furniture with some ammonia and water to degrease it.
Then I painted one really good coat of the Glidden Gripper Primer.
Followed up with Glidden paint in Antique Classic White. Do you know why I chose that color? Because it was the only can of white paint I could find that was in English and I could determine what kind of paint it was. I'm picky like that.
Love it! It makes me smile every time I walk into her room. I'm always amazed at how much a can of paint and some hard work can totally transform a piece of furniture! I bought the pulls from a seller on ebay.
