Gold and Grey Dresser Makeover by from The Blissful Bee {guest post}

Hey guys! My name is Amy and I blog over at The Blissful Bee. I am one of the new contributors to
twelveOeight and SO happy to be here to show you one of my recent furniture makeovers.


A few months ago, I repainted my bedside dresser drawers, found here. I thought the makeover was complete until I noticed something was a little off with the paint job. My sweet hubby will sometimes
leave the dresser drawers open and it eventually made me notice a huge mistake I had made a new
months prior. What was the mistake you might ask??? Well… The inside of the drawers had been left unpainted!! What was I thinking?? The original makeover happened in the middle of a big move back
in January. Honestly, I probably didn’t even think about it or care too much at the time. They remained
this awful yellow color that they had originally been painted back in the 80’s. I knew I didn’t want to
paint them the same color as the dresser, so I began brainstorming!


After much thought, I ended up choosing a subtle gold metallic color. I first tried using a gold craft
paint but quickly realized that wasn’t going to work. The craft paint wouldn’t soak into the wood
and just looked really odd and spotty. I made a quick trip to my local craft store and bought some
antique gold metallic spray paint. I then taped off the areas I did not want painted, and began spraying.
The process took no time at all! The spray paint dried super quick and I was able to place the drawers
back in place about 15 minutes after they were sprayed. I guess metallic colors dry much faster than
normal spray paint?? Either way, I was so happy with the end result! I can now say this makeover is
finally complete:)


I love the way the gold picks up the brassy tones in the knobs. I didn’t notice it as much before,
but now I think it really pops!

  1. I love how you transformed this dresser very much Amy! love the details and the gold is my favourite! I am loving everything gold lately! 🙂

  2. I'm surprised at myself but really love the gold on drawers and gray on body of chest. Very good combo. I usually prefer silver but the gold is very appropriate with the gray and love the knobs with the gold. Very catchy looking and pretty. I like something different also, good job, great posts. Happy summer
    Will look forward to your gold series.
