Dresser makeover

So here is the dresser for Georgia's room. It was that color of wood, so was the bed. The pulls where the traditional 70s 80's brass butterfly pulls. I switched them out for glass, which says Victorian to me. I first saw some good before and afters like this on centsational girls. blog. She really can redo furniture well. So I got the idea from this Centsationalgirl. Anyway I like how her dresser turned out. The cool thing is that the mirror did not originally go with the dresser, but my in-laws asked if I wanted it for the room, the were going to get rid of it and just looking at was a big "hello..yes". It has the came curvature as the dresser it was perfect and Georgia loves it. It was originally off white and since we are going for a crisp white white look we just spray painted it, when I say we I mean, my servant, worker, brother did it for me. I really did have a lot of help from family members doing what ever random thing I wanted to do... it really rocked, I felt like a professional with a work crew and everything.

  1. It's as if that mirror was meant to go with the dresser, seriously. I am sooo glad you were given the go-ahead to paint that furniture white. It looks perfect with the fabric. How fun to have your own crew. Oh wait, I've had that before - you and Clint (and your boys too, come to think of it!!). :)
