My mother in law had this dresser in a house she was going to sell and asked me if I wanted it. It's not in the best shape and I'm sure that most people would have just turned it down, but not me (I know my blogging buddies would have jumped on it also) I saw the potential in it right away. So it sat in the closet for about a year (so much for right away) and this last week I pulled it out and started the process on bringing him back to life.
I was inspired by Miss Mustard Seeds blue dresser and thought our bedroom could use a little bit of color so I went for it! I love how he turned out!! Yippee!! Hubby asked if I always refer to our furniture in the third person..I of course said yes, it makes them seem more special. I also love hearing the stories behind some of this furniture from his childhood and it makes these pieces so much more special to me.
So let's take a look shall we...... Before.. Love the little details
Isn't he beautiful? Don't answer that if you don't like him (just kidding). I used a color called SilverMist (Behr paint/primer) and sanded the edges and then sprayed a clear coat to keep the edges from peeling. I left the top the same for contrast.
So what projects are you working on this week I would love to know!
Have a wonderful week my friends!!
