{Before & After} – small dresser

I got this cute little dresser about a year and a half ago from goodwill and just kept pushing it to the side because of its broken leg.  My plan was to buy 2 matching legs, but reattaching them would be tricky.  So the other day, i had to get this thing done and out of my way – so we got out the jig saw and cut all the legs off!!  Now its a cute little dresser – i actually think it would make a perfect nightstand :)

Before…busted up leg…

Then i painted it Ivoire by Sherwin Williams.  Its a light buttery yellow that would be great for walls, but its kinda boring as is for furniture.  So i distressed it and then glazed it with a dark brown stain.  See the difference the distressing/glaze makes?  oooh lala :)

After all was painted and the original hardware updated with oil rubbed bronze spray paint – it looks like this!  I love it!

Love the distressing on this one!!
