One day, while browsing Home Depot, I found an "oops" quart of red paint. It was only $2 and matched the boys' room decor beautifully. I had to scoop it up!
It got a coat of primer that I had on hand from this project here. It has a tint of light blue to it that peeps through the red nicely. I painted two coats of red to give it a rich look, then lightly sanded it down with 150 grit sandpaper.
The tricycle was a treasure found at a local thrift store.
Here is the dresser's before shot:
It's going to look great in the boys' room.
