DRESSER PROGRESS PART 3

The next time I show you this dresser, I promise it will be in my bedroom! I wanted to do a quick update on how the hardware turned out. In my last post, I mentioned that I wanted the hardware to be shiny. Then you guys said that I should see how it looks as is so I did

What do you think? Honestly, I do like the hardware in its current state.

but the problem is, I've already (somewhat) shined one

So, I decided to go ahead and "somewhat" shine the rest. I made sure that I didn't over do it so some of the grime remained

You can tell that the pull on the bottom right has more shine than the rest, but I doubt you'll notice once it's in the room!

Let's see the before again shall we

I can't wait until "she" take the place of this chest of drawer

Wow... that is gorgeous! I tried to redo a piece similar to that in fall and I blogged about it. Did it black... yours is WAY cuter!!! Fun Fun!

OMG! I hope you are giving yourself a huge pat on the back, this is fabulous. You will never ever notice that one of the pulls may be slightly more shiny than the others...no big deal. I can't tell. It looks gorgeous, get it up into the room and show us a picture! Janell

ooohhh, kita!!! I love it, and think the hardware looks great. I do, however think that mirror should stay downstairs and "we" should find something bigger and super fabulous to go above the dresser. What do you think (or are you going to mount the tv?) ????

Tamstyles said...

i think new hardware in silver would be great on this..

Linda said...

I'm thinking SILVER too! I luv the color of the dresser...just my style:)

Blessings,

Lisa said...

What a beautiful dresser- such great curves and you did a beautiful job!

Best Life said...

It's wonderful! I love painted furniture. Myself, I'm not a "gold" person so I'd give those handles a spray of something...maybe bronze or black. But it's wonderful...I look forward to seeing it in the bedroom. Lisa~ www.livingmybestlifeii-lisa.blogspot.com

What a fun and funky color...great job! It gives a huge splash of color in the room. And the hardware is so sweet and feminine. LOVES IT!

jen @ the inspiration studio said...

I think how you shined the pulls just a bit is perfect. Give it kind of a shabby chic look. And Oh. My. Gosh. LOVE the color. I am a huge color fan and that just looks amazing with the chocolate brown wall!
