OMG We Bought A House! Episode 5: Be Our Guest(Room)!

The in-laws are coming, the in-laws are coming! Watch the video above and see how we prepped our guest room for Joey’s parents. We DIY an old thrift store dresser and create a cozy, decorated space for our impending guests.




This dresser had been DIY’d a few times before we bought it at the thrift store and it was ready for another one! I went for a two-tone look and used a textured spray paint on the drawers to cover the flaws and used rope for the handles!

Prep It:

  • an old dresser (we found ours at a thrift store)
  • drop cloth
  • sand paper
  • natural rope – we used 3/8″ diameter
  • paintbrushes
  • spray paint primer in white if you’re going light or grey if you’re going darker
  • x-acto knife or scissors to cut rope
  • contact cement (optional, to secure the rope knots)
  • gray paint (we used Valspar’s Man Cave)
  • white textured spray paint
  • wood putty – optional if you need to fill in any holes from the previous drawer pulls
  • drill with a 1/2″ drill bit
