My Favorite Dresser


This is was my favorite dresser ever!

When I got it it was just a walnut color, nothing special and VERY rustic.

Its been used as a entertainment stand, computer desk...

Until we moved into our house... 
where it stores lots of great stuff and is just a beautiful piece of furniture.

(you will soon see I have an addiction to dressers)

I then... painted it black.. 


Well, I was inspired by Miss Mustard Seed

and I got the paint free from Glidden... 

**the paint color is Robins Egg**

Its looked like this for sometime now...

I wanted to try to keep the original hardware
 but I always though it just didn't work
it was missing something.

I replaced the top knobs with some I picked up at Michael's.

I still was so unhappy with the hardware...
sure it is what came on it, but it just doesn't fit in. 

I want something CHUNKY!!

So off I went to Lowes...

and I found EXACTLY what I wanted.

This piece now a sweet little dresser for a newborn baby boy, an amazing little family!
