Check out my new dresser -


It started with this unloved piece picked up at a garage sale


It still needs new knobs. I think I'll pick up some plain wood ones and paint them red.

I'm very excited about this dresser because I've been trying to figure out what to do with my bedroom, and I think I have a direction now. Cool blues and greys with red as an accent, I think.

I have some more posts about it up on my blog: http://needyl.com/craft-type/operation-domestication

Here are some more in progress pics

I usually cry for every antique that has been painted, but this looks fantastic! Your preserved the antiquity of it in such a tasteful manner! It looks really great! Smiley

I cry too. I think it's a shame to cover beautiful wood with paint that chips.

Unfortunately, this wood was not pretty. It's kind of like make-up - normally I am a minimalist, but I understand why Oprah wears so much.

I think that this looks nice. I normally dislike painted wood but since you picked out all of the details with the red paint, it looks pretty respected Smiley

For the knobs you should look for red glass knobs *drools* those would be so pretty!
