It was given to me by a friend when I had my very first apartment, and given to her before that. I painted it black, distressed it, added hardware and used it in my living room of that first apartment that I made my home for two years.
The dresser came with me to my second apartment and was used in the tiny breakfast area to display my coffee maker and coffee cups.
When I married my husband, it came with me to his bachelor pad, and was used in our bedroom ,as I attempted to turn the barren spaces of his first house into our starter home.
When we bought our first home together, the one we live in now and have fixed up on our own, this dresser was given glass knobs and used in the dining room once again to display dishes.
And now, as we've grown the family by three kids, it's getting a makeover and being used in Baby Girl's ro.
My point ~ free can go a long way! A good solid piece of furniture has a lot of life to give!
I decided to paint this dresser pink and white. I have a lot of pink in the room and was careful not to overdo bold pink pallets. With the other dresser in the room being pink, I felt like just having pink drawers on this piece was the right touch.
I refinished this piece the way I refinished the dresser I shared yesterday, and the way I refinish most pieces, with no sanding required……
The mirror above the dresser was a garage sale find and was used above this dresser in the dining room. It came upstairs with the dresser to be used in the nursery.
I'm happy with the new look of this dresser. I think the white and pink of both dressers go together nicely and work perfect in this room!
