Painting a dresser gray {Dinosaur boy bedroom}

Tuesday / 9 comments
Remember the dresser from the laundry room that got replaced with my Ana White laundry dressers? It got a little makeover for my son's new dinosaur bedroom!



I primed it with Zinsser 123 primer and then painted it with 2 coats of Behr's antique tin in satin. Same color as his nightstand.  The black pulls got switched out with some satin nickel ones from Home Depot.

The top also got a coat of polycrylic for added durability.

The magnetic chalkboard with alphabet letters  got hung above the dresser.  I've been writing his kindergarten word of the week on the chalkboard but he can still reach it if he wants to color.

I am really liking the calming gray color.
