A Minty Fresh Dresser…

Lately my color obsession has been mint..
Mint shirts, mint scarves, mint shoes, mint pants, & now mint paint.
I had this little dresser sitting around for quite some
time & was just waiting for the perfect color.
When I ran across “Mint Gala” by Valspar, I knew
it was made for my cute little dresser…

 & this little dresser all primed and ready to be painted…

 I bought this sweet little dresser at GoodWill a few months
ago for practically free.. I love when that happens…

I kept the original hardware simply because it’s amazing.
The hardware is antiqued wonderfully & adds to the charm
of this little dresser…

Isn’t that hardware perfectly aged & wonderful?

Another charming part of this dresser is the Raggedy Ann & Andy
paper that lines the drawers…

I have not decided if I am going to keep this dresser or sell it
I love it so much that it is going to be very hard for me to
sell it.. It needs a good home :)

  1. Just beautiful! I’m in love with the color!

  2. Um LOVE!!!!

  3. Love it!! The Howard Miller clock is a beautiful accent piece! :-)

  4. Looks really good and I love the color. I want to know how you find such good deals at goodwill…the ones around Raleigh are high! Or I am super cheap :)

    • Thank you so much April!!! It is hit or miss here.. Sometimes I want to ask an associate why the heck the price is so hight.. $100 for a dresser at goodwill?!? That is just ridiculous.. especially when it is in bad condition… I have not got lucky in a while.. maybe this week! :)

  5. Love this, I’m totally on the mint train too! I’ve been using Martha Stewart’s Sea Glass a lot lately, I’ll have to try out this color next time I’m doing mint.

  6. Looks awesome, Liz! I’m obsessed with mint right now too.

  7. Cindy Seymour says:

    If you decide to sell it relatively soon, I think I could make an awesome changing table out of that!

  8. Oh my lands…..I am obsessed with that color!!! It’s gorgeous! It’s so fresh looking! And you’re right…..that color was just “mint” for that little dresser makeover. Ba-dum-ching!! ;)

  9. So lovely…that liner is so cute! :) Enjoy! Megan

  10. This color is to die for!! I should just buy a few five gallon buckets and start painting everything this color, and the Raggedy Ann and Andy lining is perfect, definitely gives it even more of a vintage look. thanks for sharing this!

  11. I have a question. When you paint a piece like this do you finish it off with poly or some type of wax? I just finished painting a piece I have had for a while! I’m so excited to use it but thought it might need a coat of either one of those just to protect it? What do you recommend?

  12. I LOVE it!!! It’s the perfect color! Of course I’m bias because I love green. :) I have a dresser that I’ve been needing to refinish, I’m thinking maybe this is the perfect color.


  13. This is gorgeous! This color is awesome on the dresser. You did a fabulous
    job. I really like the scale with the books.

  14. Its adorable! I wish I could find cute furniture in need of a little love.

  15. Very nice restyle! I love the color and hardware but you forgot to mention mint choc chip ice cream too!

  16. Beautiful! Love the clock as well! Nice touch! Pleasse come by my party to link it up – I would love to have you there!

  21. I have a loving relationship with mint as well! This dresser is absolutely gorgeous, and the liner is the perfect touch! I wasn’t able to go out and buy paint one day; I made my own mint color with some white Olympic paint that I had and a portion of aqua acrylic paint. It’s now one of my favorite pieces!

  43. A truly beautiful refinish job! If you decide to part with it, please get in touch. My Mom and I are re-doing the living room in a beachy/cottage theme and this color and look would be perfect for us. I would like to put the TV on it and use the drawers for storage.

    When you showed the Raggedy Ann and Andy liner I knew it was meant to be. My Mom made me and my sister our own Raggedy Ann And Andy dolls when we were kids and I still have mine!

    Thanks for sharing your lovely work with us!

  44. I love mint too…especially on your beautiful piece here…lovely work! :)

  45. That color is gorgeous! I love blues and greens so much! You did a fantastic job!

  46. Laurie Rivera says:

    I love this and the side table you just completed! Why did you prime this and not the little table? Also if you prime do you not have to sand, and vice versa if you sand do you not have to prime? When should you choose to do one over the other? Sorry lots of questions in this post. I have a hand me down office desk that is half black and half cherry what color would you suggest for a man’s office? Thank you.

  47. Liz, do you sand and prime before painting a piece?

  48. Tatyana Duncan says:

    This looks great! Just gorgeous!! It’s my obsession too, both redoing furniture and anything aqua/mint/turquoise !! I actually stumbled upon your blog by accident, I’m looking for the perfect wall color. I love the color behind the dresser!!! Would you mind sharing the name and brand??? Thanks so much!

  49. Hey…I love the mint dresser and just curious how you finished the color? It looks like you first did a primer, then the mint color, then sanded down the edges? How did you make it look so rustic?

  50. christi mercer says:

    Can you tell me the exact glaze that you used on this furniture piece? Thanks!!!!
