Wow! $1.00 Paint

 I'm at a garage sale when I see it:
One gallon brand new Behr Premium Plus, Satin, Peacock blue, sitting in a house ready to get foreclosed on and I ask the home owner how much he wants for his paint.  "$1.00," he replies and I bring it home.
Three dressers later,
two out of the three already sold.
How many more dressers can I paint with this $1.00 paint?  I'm thinking another dozen.

  1. Oh my gosh, now that's my kinda fun! Excellent work on the dressers, congrats on the sales. That can's going to go a long way!

  2. Darn, that should have said "find" not fun, lol!

  3. way to go! i like the last one the best

  4. I love the middle dresser. How cool that you bought that paint for $1.00!!~Ames

  5. Wow, just shows the power of a can of paint. Great job on the dressers. Similar, and yet each with a beauty of their own. Nice work!

  6. I love all three! That is a reall cool color. Quite a buy at only $1.

  7. I love that shade of blue and what you have done to the dressers, very cool! Have a great weekend, Nan

  8. We could be best friends, you and I.
    -Love garage sales!
    -Love, love, love that color. In fact, I'm toying with the idea of painting my hall bathroom something like that color.
    -Love those dressers. Great job!!!

  9. Amazing! I have a little dresser that I need to rebuild and refinish. Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. It amazing me how some people can find such rock bottom deals like this. Way too cool! And, good job on the dressers, too!!!

  11. I thought of you this weekend as I picked up 3 cans of paint for $1 each! 2 were gallon containers still about 3/4 full & one was a quart, mostly full. I didn't find any fun colors....mine were very neutral. But, I love the color you found! I have a piece of furniture I'd love to paint in a color very much like that! My favorite of the 3 pieces is the last one....although I actually like the middle furniture piece most. I'm just not into something quite as heavily distressed. I'm more of a lightly distressed kind of gal. :)
