Dresser makeover!

Happy Monday everyone! I am so excited the sun is shining in my neck of the woods today! Anyone else getting spring fever!
I have been busy working on this dresser redo. This was my grandparents dresser from many years ago. I hated to see it get thrown out so I thought I would give it some TLC.

I was so anxious to get started I forgot to take a before picture!
I removed the drawers and took a hammer and my foot (I am so professional!) to the drawer dividers on the top row. Then I had a piece of MDF cut to fit over the slats for a smooth shelf and to reinforce the drawers below. I didn't feel the need to sand because I used this Bulls Eye 1,2,3 primer. I love this stuff it sticks to anything!

I painted the dresser with Benjamin Moore High Gloss Metal & Wood Enamel in black. The drawer pulls are from Lowe's they were on clearance for $.96 each! They are a antique gold (not as brassy as they look in the picture, I haven't decided whether I will paint them pewter or not???
