Pinterest Challenge: Ombre Dresser

So thankful for pinterest. Almost all of my projects have been pinterest inspired, but I thought I would share one of my most recent. This ombre dresser has been floating around Pinterest in all of its awesomeness. After my mother-in-law donated her old dresser to me, it was on like donkey kong.
I had initially planned on spray painting each drawer a different shade of gray, but after going to Lowes and seeing that was a crazy idea, I grabbed a bucket of white, a small bottle of black, and some new paint brushes. I then mixed the perfect shades of grey into bowls.
I needed more storage for all my junk in my craft room. And since my craft room is actually the room that our front door leads into, I wanted it look more like a room and less like a junk yard.
I think it worked out:
I need to rub some soap around the drawers so they pull a little more smooth. Hence why they look slightly crazy below. I love it anyway. I pop my head into this room just to look at my new dresser. It makes me happy.
See the challengers here:


  1. Looks great Megan! I love it!

  2. Love the dresser and the rest of your front room! Care to come to CA to help me out?!

  3. Good for you for mixing your own paint! It looks great, and I bet it's nice to see it every time you walk into the room. :-) Great job, and thanks for linking up with the Winter Pinterest Challenge!
