…so I was reading my Traditional Home, which I usually do, without shame on the soccer sidelines, NO Not the whole time, just during breaks!! And I happen upon this dresser….in this Tobi Fairley designed “to die for hallway” with killer wallpaper, and I thought, “hmmm, I wonder if I could make my $25 yard sale dresser look KIND of like this?”

So, I grabbed some white paint… one of the kitchen cabinet rejects, Benjamin Moore Moonlight White, and I pulled out the drawers. The dresser was already painted high gloss black. I picked up this this dresser for $25, well, actually I pulled a u-turn after I spotted it at the end of the day at a weekday yard sale, rare around here. It was painted brown of all things, and the only way to go was high gloss black.
I painted the drawers white and then I went online to cabinethardwareuniverse.com and bought all of these knobs for $30. and voila!!!!
…then, as usually happens, the other OLD cabinet looked bad to me. This is the one that holds ALL of my paint supplies and canvases and photography equipment in my Old Country house with no closets…and had painted it green after I saw a Stray Dog Design Case Piece painted this color..
but MINE just looked BIG and Green and out of place… so much so, that even my “no opinion” hubby said “That doesn’t match?”…
…I still kind of liked it…but, the NEW blue-gray (Benjamin Moore Wedgewood Gray) …is calmer…and looks dynamite with the brown…(the walls are BM Fairview Taupe) I HAD to use this color, For gosh sakes, our house is named Fairview!!! what are the chances??/!!!!
…next up..the dining room chairs, wait to you see what I have cooked up for them!
that is unless I win the lotto and buy these…
…or sell a painting and buy these which I have eyed for months….
for now…I am off to paint Phoebe’s room!!!
