A Dresser Makeover

Ever since we welcomed little man #2 into our home{almost a year ago} we have been in desperate need of a new dresser (we have nowhere for all these little man clothes). Now folks...I. AM. CHEAP. But just because I'm cheap doesn't mean I don't have taste. I wasn't about to go spend a hundred bucks on a dresser that I didn't love.
I had this vision in my head and it wasn't going anywhere.

I knew what I wanted and I was going to find it.

I scammed craigslist forever (Ok, more like a year or two). Finally found this gem, made my offer, and had it in my home and completed before the week was up!

I try to spray paint everything (because spray paint rocks) but I knew it would take a lot of spray paint, so I went with a can this time.
1 Quart of Valspar (interior paint/primer) in Cookie Crumb covered the whole thing perfectly. I even coated the drawers 3 times each. I also don't normally sand but I figured this dresser would get banged up enough that a good sanding would only help my cause.
And I of course finished it off with black antiquing glaze...because black glaze makes everything look better ;)

Completed the whole project in less than $60 (even that kind of seemed pricey to me)haha now you know how cheap I am!
