Revamped Dresser

This dresser has been in my daughter's room since she was born. It was stained wood when I bought it at a thrift store. My first redo on it looked like this...

I loved how it turned out and it looked great in her cottage style room. Then we moved and her room became a little more modern. The dresser still seemed to fit in.

It was really starting to show it's age and needed a facelift. The paint was starting to scratch off. And yes, we distress all our furniture so the paint will look old and crackly, but this dresser just lacked that kind of charm. Plus, we moved again and I wanted to give E's room a little more of a bohemian feel without changing too much. I thought painting her dresser would be a great place to add a punch of color and personality. So, remember the before...

(look how old that tv is!!)

And now, the after.....aaahh!



I just love the way it pops off her light aqua walls.



I bought the pulls at Target several months back. There came in a set of four originally for $18.99 but I found them on sale for $4.98. I bought the only two packs I could find. I went to another Target and they didn't have them on sale and wouldn't give them to me for the same price. I just couldn't bring myself to pay the full price for another pack, especially when I only needed two of the four! So, I went with a mismatched look! I think it works. I'm keeping my eye out for another set of the glass ones, though!

I'm loving the way my girl's room is turning out! I have several more projects (like her headboard) to share with you from her room, so stay tuned!

I'm linked to A Soft Place to Land for DIY Day and tomorrow I'm sharing this post over at Infarrantly Creative's Roadkill Rescue Party!
