I found this dresser not to long after I started painting. I wasn't very picky then. I knew the drawers were broken and thought it would be an easy fix. ;) Well, I never did fix them so ended up keeping it instead of selling it. I recently did a hutch for myself and it replaced this dresser. I didn't want to mess with all new drawer glides so I decided to repurpose it.
I just want you to know I have an amazing husband! Truly, he's spectacular. :) I told him what I wanted to do and he hauled it to the shop and got to work. And, he's good at what he does!! I owe him more than I can ever pay (and for more than just fixing my furniture!)
I am so stinking excited to show you this one!
Not the original before, but
Ahhhh--it's so adorable!! Yes, my kids think I'm a freak! :)
The color is Covington Blue by Benjamin Moore. I actually glazed it once and decided I liked it better before glazing so had to repaint it. I hate when that happens, but oh well!
I love dark knobs against a lighter color and I love how the glass in the middle helps them not look too heavy.
You know I love a dark top and I couldn't let the opportunity to have a little contrast go, so I opted to stain the arm rails. Love how rustic they look with the grain.
We had to cut the legs off so it would be the right height for sitting. And, although I was sad to cut any of them off we left the best part! :)
Seriously, loving this one so much!!
Hope you have a great rest of the week!!
