Today I finally finished giving "Boring" her makeover.
Here she is. Now let's call her "Beautiful".
Very original, I know.
One last look at "Boring".
She was my $45 thrift store find.
I first gave her a good sanding and then primed her with Kilz.
After that, I gave her two coats of Benjamin Moore Kilim Beige.
I also removed the curvy apron from the bottom. Didn't suit my style.
After that, a light coat of glaze and little more sanding.
Since there were twelve knobs on the top two drawers, I decided to keep them.
I purchased six more handles for the bottom drawers.
I applied a little Rub 'n Buff to all the hardware.
Again, love that stuff!
I originally thought our bedroom needed some color, but I think what it really needed was a few accessories. Before adding the dresser, it was pretty much void of any accessories.
I did add a punch of color with the books. It's just enough for me.
I picked up this little gem at a flea market this weekend for $1.00.
I added another hint of gold with this frame. This is my sweet baby boy when he was 18 months.
The pictures are a few of my favorite baby photos.
The frames are from K-Mart and I have had them for years.
Now I just need to fill it up with my clothes.
What do you think, Boring or Beautiful?
