Official party time kicks off at 12pm EST. Enjoy! a thoughtful place If you are a regular here at my blog, than you know that my daughter is wanting to edit some of the pink from her room and have it feel a little bit more grown up. I had purchased Ikea dressers a while back and they remained unpainted until this opportunity arose. This party gave me the much needed jump start to create some fun dressers for her new grown up looking room. Here is the dresser before: IMG_9638   To complete this project I used My Color inspired by Pantone in Bright White and Lunar Rock {light gray}. IMG_9650   Once the drawers were removed, I painted the top of the dresser and the drawers white. I used two coats for each. IMG_9669 IMG_9670 I then painted the sides of the dresser gray. If you do a project like this, be sure to paint the inside edges a bit as they will show. IMG_9679 To paint the stripes, I measured so that there would be one stripe in the center of two drawers. For the middle drawer, you need to tape off with painting two stripes in mind. As long as you keep your stripes the same width you will be in great shape. {I just divided the height of the drawer in thirds}. IMG_9661 IMG_9663 I did two coats of gray for the stripes with a drying time of about 30 minutes in between. Removing the tape while the paint is still wet is very important in getting really nice lines. I could not have been happier with how they came out. There was ZERO bleedthrough. IMG_9664 IMG_9666 For hardware I chose a simple chrome knob from Lowe’s.   a thoughtful place   a thoughtful place You can see how I made her monogrammed tray here. I used the gray paint to give it a nice fresh coat {it was previously green}. a thoughtful place I chose carnations for her room. They are rarely used these days, but to me that look like a little glass bowl of ice cream. a thoughtful place a thoughtful place Giveaway: How to Enter to Win Your Own Paint If you’d like a chance to win a sample of MyColor™ inspired by Pantone® for your own project, simply comment on my post and share how you’d use MyColor™ inspired by Pantone® in your next project!

    One word…Gorgeous! I bet Riley is so happy with her new grown up dresser. Beautifully done Courtney. Those stripes are perfect I also love the carnations. I have a soft spot for them. Growing up my Dad would always bring a bouquet of red roses for my Mom on Valentine's Day and he'd bring pink carnations for my sister and me. I would love to win a sample of MyColor. it would be fun to paint a dresser for my niece for Christmas.

    I would use the paint to give a small cabinet I bought to go in our bathroom at Goodwill a facelift. It needs help! :) I'm thinking white and…another color. LOL Need to think on that more.

    My husband and I are expecting our first child in the spring and are in the process of preparing the nursery so needless to say, there are a dozen different projects that could use the helping hand of Pantone paint!

    that turned out so perfect!! love the stripes and colors…it will look so good in her room! I've got a few pieces just waiting for a fresh coat of paint…so fun to see all those Pantone colors!

    Oh I love it! How has she liked the actual dresser? Are they sturdy enough. I've looked at them a few times at Ikea but wondered if they were too light weight. . . . Thanks!
