Triple Dresser Makeover

I found 3 of these dressers at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for $30 each.  The bottom drawer is missing because I started painting it before I remembered to take a picture. Oops!  I had fun experimenting with the colors on each dresser.

For this dresser I used mustard yellow on the drawers, and gray on the outside.

I decided to add some stripes on top. I love stripes!

For this dresser, i painted the drawers light pink and the outside white.  I painted some brown miniwax stain on top of the pink and wiped most of it off for a more distressed look.  

The last dresser was painted using white and 5 different shades of blue.  I went to Lowes and found paint sample cards that were very close in color, each shade being slightly darker than the color before. I bought a sample of each shade for $3 each at Lowes. 

I painted the top drawer white, and then got darker with each drawer going down. 

Added stripes on top!  I think this one would be perfect for a little boy's room.
