I picked up this cute little oak dresser several years ago. I removed the top two drawers, added a shelf and had been using it for my tv stand. UNTIL, I kept the gorgeous vanity I refinished a few weeks ago. I can't tell you how happy I am I kept it, but it meant this little gal needed a new makeover and a new home!
Thankfully I never re-purposed the drawers ;) and I kept the support that goes between them. So, I simple removed the shelf, added the support back in, and replaced the drawers. I also had to replace the top as it had warped. My hubby simply used the old top as a template and cut a new one out of a piece of pine.
I loved this little dresser in white, but I thought it was time to do something fun with it. Of course, you already know I am in love with almost every shade of turquoise out there so I mixed up a custom color, which looked gorgeous in the can, but when I put it on the dresser it just looked anemic. I let it sit for a day to give myself time to evaluate and hated it just as much the next day. SO, I went back to the kitchen and mixed up a different, more vibrant color and tried that one out for size. This dresser has been 5 colors in the past 3 years (3 shades of white and 2 shades of blue).
Like I said, I liked it in white, just wanted to do something different with it.
It's a simple, little dresser so I kept the design simple: All one color, all the same knobs (that's unusual for me!).
I like how the rusty centers of the knobs pull down the dark from the top.
It's pine so it's not perfect, but I like it dark and I love the knots and grooves in it.
It doesn't have a lot of detail, but I love the simple side panels and the cute skirt.
I distressed it enough to bring out it's previous colors. :)
