A quick before and after this morning....
This poor dresser has been sitting in my shop for ages. It was sold for a while, and then it wasn't....you know how that goes (or maybe I'm the only one that happens to?). Anyway, I finally got around to pulling it out. I thought it would be a quick redo, but the thing had other plans for me!
I wanted to do something a little different with it, so I painted the top two drawers a different color and hated it. Then I thought maybe I didn't like it because it wasn't distressed yet, so I distressed the heck out of it and hated it even more. Then I repainted the whole thing white (originally I had stained the top a medium tone) and put some white hardware on it. I hated it. Then I painted the top black and left the white hardware on and it wasn't so bad, but I still didn't like it. Then I changed out all the hardware and this is what I had.
I think the reason I had such a hard time with it is because of the clean lines. I love the lines of antique pieces and am not really into the mod 70's stuff, but in the end I think this is a good look for her. :)
Check out the pulls!!
I was so tired of it by the time I was done I just pulled her to the side of my shop where I work and snapped a pic (hence the ugly wall and floor!).
Nothing seemed to fit her so well as a classic look of black and white. I've realized doing this that we all don't have the same taste. She may not be my favorite piece, but I'm sure somebody will love her!!
Have a great weekend!
