Furniture Friday | Amateur Furniture Refinishing

Happy Friday y'all. I sure need this weekend. Coral isn't sleeping well lately, but that's a post in itself. 

So, not much home decor things are happening in casa de cook lately, but I've kinda got a back log from Coral's nursery. For once in my life I actually finished a room! And really, really loved it. My favorite piece in the room is her dresser pictured above. It was one of those rare times that I didn't look at the finished product and go, "hm. Something didn't go quite right." 

We used a superrrr old dresser, painted that baby "Swiss coffee" by Behr with primer. I'm lazy and always get primer in the paint so I can skip sanding. I'm not necessarily recommending that, but we skipped it and don't really mind the few nicks on the paint here and there. 

My favorite part of this dresser is the hardware. I searched high and low, and was very picky about hardware.  Coral's room is shades of coral (duh), muted pink/peach and gold. So the gold handles were incredibly important to me. We bought 4 from ansaldi hardware, (the modern pull) and 6 from Lowes that we very carefully spray painted with a brass finish color. 

I'm gonna post more pics later, but am currently rushing from task to task. Have a good weekend!
