FINALLY, A DRESSER REVEAL!

I’m late posting today, but I am just too excited to reveal the finished dresser with you! Remember what color it was

064

Many of you liked the blue color (including me!), but because I plan to move this dresser to my bedroom, I needed it to be lighter.

After a coat of primer and some of my trim paint (aesthetic white by Sherwin Williams), and lets knot forget these lovely pulls

I now have this

It was kinda hard for me to get a good picture with this liitle guy scooting around on the floor!

Not to mention that it is storming out so I don’t have good natural light…

Here is a close up of the knobs. I absolutely adore them! Brass is back, not whack!

Again, this dresser is making its way upstairs. However, if I do decide to leave it where it is, I will replace the mirror with this one painted gold! Better scale…ya know?!

So, what do you think? Do you still prefer the blue?!

Those pulls are amazing! I've never seen anything like them before! Loved the blue but white looks fantastic too!

Jennifer Nicole said...

This is FANtastic! I love your choice of hardware...such a creative idea to do single pulls on each! I think it's so fun that we both took on the task of covering shades...I guess it's true what they say (great minds think alike!!) ;)

Miss Mustard Seed said...

I love the gold accents against the new color of the dresser. I love blue, but it looks so much more sophisticated now. Lovely!

SHERRY HART said...

Those pulls...I am dying! It turned out great!

april said...

Omg! I love this dresser in the white!! I think the white mirror you have above the dresser when it was blue would look great too.

I wasn't to sure about the handles but now I think I like those too. Great Job!
