I've had this lovely dresser sitting in my garage since before Finn was born. I had painted it white and added new drawer pulls, but just didn't know where to put it! My house is lacking in storage/closet space, so I was yearning for those extra drawers (to end up stuffing full of junk, I'm sure). I found it at the thrift shop (seriously, do I ever shop anywhere else?!) for $8....it was a somewhat horrible pale yellow/gold colour.
Anyways....I put my mom muscles to good use and Dustin and I brought her upstairs. Finally!
So, maybe it's a little crowded in my living room now....big deal. So worth it for the storage space. And besides....I just kind of like looking at her! A perfect spot for some fresh pink tulips!
The mirror sitting on top was a classic gold/gilt style and I freshened it up with some of my dusty blue/grey paint and a bit of white paint for distressing.
I found the lovely glass decanters at the thrift shop yesterday and I love them!
Here's the before picture of the mirror...
