First things first, let me share my major excitement over my “new” Henry Link Bali Hai highboy dresser. I won’t take all the credit in finding this treasure, because I honestly stalk @palmbeachthrifters and have found quite a few pieces from what they share.
I had to go back into my archive to pull out my only before picture. This piece was in great shape and I was originally torn between painting it pink or green. Then I saw a navy faux bamboo dresser on Pinterest and my decision was made. I was determined to find matching nightstands to complete the set and luckily a few weeks later (again thanks to following the thrifting queen) I snatched up a pair at a different thrift shop - but was too excited to capture a before picture.

I have used pretty much every brand of spray paint and I thought I was a rusto-leum girl for life, but this Krylon fusion all-in-one kinda blew my mind. I found it at Ace Hardware and it will be my go to for any future projects. Great coverage, no drips, and sprayed so evenly it earned this paragraph on my blog. Also, this is by no means an ad or sponsored in anyway - just sharing my opinion on products I paid for and recommend.
