This is gorgeous! I love the pattern on the drawers and LOVE the handles also! Great job!

I had this SUPER old metal dresser when I was a lot younger that my mom let me spray paint once.
I sprayed it HOT pink and orange and then used that slip resistant drawer liner stuff (with the holes) and laid that on it and sprayed it with green spray paint. Wow that dresser was hideous! But it was fun when I was younger, your dresser painting story reminded me of that, my sister had my hideous dress for awhile but I don't know what happened to it after that. Man I wish I had a picture of it now LOL!

Hahaha, that's funny. My dad said he had spray painted it red white and blue when he was a teenager, lol. This dresser was hot pink once. Tongue

I am so iffy on the handles, I think it's because I've seen them for too long? They are the originals.
Thank you for the nice comment!

You're welcome! I think the handles really go with the look of the dresser right now, they go well with the pattern and the feel I think Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

omg.

my heart.... it aches for a dresser like this!
this is seriously beautiful! do not change the handles!!!

it has that same feeling i get when i look at photos on decor8 (http://decor8blog.com/)
everytime i see something so chic yet girly it makes me want to cry. i HATE sharing my house with a BOY (aka husband). he'd never ever let me have "frou frou" things.... so our house remains boring. mod but in the sense of logical dark furniture, straight lines and minimalist.

borrring.

but seriously, you got a rocks from me. i love love love it!!!!

Thank you so so much! I took a look at that website, they have some pretty things. Smiley

I, too, live with a husband. He was actually the inspiration for this dresser because he loves all things Victorian! He loved the way it turned out. I like the minimalist look, but I have to have pieces that stand out. Conversation pieces, etc. Maybe you could decorate the inside of a closet for yourself? Turn it into a little private chic boutique. Smiley

you have a husband that loves victorian?!?!?
i am even more jealous!

i just got into sewing, so he allowed me to share the space in our home gym (because there isn't any other room in the house i can put the machine).... he doesn't know it yet.... but i have many many plans to make it girly Cheesy

i am definately keeping your post in mind tho, for when i get around to the storage part of my little plan!
again, beautiful, this is one of my favorite posts on here Smiley

The fact that you simply printed the design yourself versus buying expensive paper makes me like the dresser even more than I did initially.

Cost savvy crafting always rules.

Hey, that's the only kind of crafting I do! Smiley

It really only cost me about $7-9.
