Look what I found while thrift store shopping with my family this past week-end….

29th Birthday 051

I'm in L-O-V-E.

My dad kept insisting that the dresser is called a “Blondie”.  I thought that was funny.

Almost as funny as my parents squished in the backseat of my Jeep while trying to get the dresser home.

Good thing they love me....

My dad doesn’t think I should paint the dresser.  Seriously, Dad?

No piece of furniture is safe from my paint brush and mini-roller.

It’s going to live in our master bedroom.  I have visions of 3 different shades of grey in my head.

What color(s) would you paint the dresser? 

Would you keep the hardware or replace it with something new?  I'm torn.

**This dresser find gets me 1 step closer to completing goal #27 on my 30 Before 30 List.

Dresser Transformation (Guest Bedroom)

Nate had this dresser that he received as a hand-me-down.  It's a nice dresser.  It just doesn't fit our decorating style. 

I had pondered painting it for about 2 years but was too afraid to ruin it.  Once we moved, I decided it needed a make-over.  This was my first attempt at furniture gate-way furniture piece, if you will.

I was happy with how it turned out.  I just wasn't sure what to do with the hardware so I decided to spray paint it.  It stayed like this for about a year.

We didn't really like it but we were too lazy and cheap to figure out something different (it happens).

When the nighstands entered the picture, we decided to get matching hardware.  And here is the dresser today.  Much simpler.

(Don't judge us and our hunking tv....we like antiques. :P) 

More to come with completing the guest room!
