I had a little black dresser in the hall downstairs and I felt like I wanted to update it a little and move it to the other corner. I had a friend come over and put in a new outlet so that I could put a lamp there.
I spray painted it gold and then did a coat of blue over it. I quickly took some sand paper and scuffed it up a bit until I liked the look. Then I used my "weathered gray" stain over it to make it not quite so blue.
I added some legs so that it made it more of a piece of furniture rather than a cheapo dresser. And the cute drawer pulls don't hurt it either.
