A HANDSOME SLICK TALLBOY DRESSER GETS A LAZY-GIRL-NO-SAND SPRING INSPIRED MAKEOVER.
As of tomorrow, Spring is officially here and I couldn’t be happier! To celebrate the end of old man winter, I treated myself to some fresh spring inventory – a handsome bedroom set. It includes a head/footboard, two nightstands, a long dresser, and this tallboy.
Isn’t it fabulous!
I posted this before on social asking for color suggestions. A big thank you to everyone who chimed on Facebook. You all have some amazingly creative ideas!
I ‘mashed’ a few of them together (green, blue, yellow, grey, mermaid dresser) and came up with this layered spring inspired beauty. What do you think?

LAZY GIRL “NO-SAND” PRIMER::
I’ve created a few posts on how to avoid sanding your furniture which I’ll link to at the bottom — but today, I’m getting product specific. Slick Stick [this] no-sand primer was designed for super slick and shiny surfaces like glass, laminate, tiles, Formica etc, but works equally well for painting furniture.
This tallboy dresser had a slick surface and I knew if I were to give it a light sanding, I would have had really bad bleedthrough.
The lazy girl solution was to give it a coat of Slick Stick, wait 3 hours and re-coat. I apply it with a 4″ high-density foam roller to make the process super quick. The next day, it’s ready to paint – no sanding required.
Here’s what it looks like with the two coats of this no-sand primer rolled on it.
Then you paint as you normally would and the paint adheres 100%.
This dresser was painted with a layered technique which I share here.
Layering doesn’t start out looking good but the end result has a rich vibrant depth with a variety of colors peeking through.
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS SPRING DRESSER MAKEOVER… OR FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE… I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.
Happy furniture painting my friends!
