{Teal Dresser} – before & after

I PROMISE i am working and the answers from the “Ask Me Anything” post – there are so may questions and i am def going to have to break it down in a couple of posts!


Until then, i just wanted to show a cute dresser that i finished up this week.  I painted it the same color that i did on the last piano i finished (see post here) – im really loving this color!  Its that perfect blue with a little green in it – i LOVE it so ;)

Before –  solid dresser with good bones, i love the curved front on this one and the small detail trim around the drawers.  The hardware was dated though, so i filled in all the hardware holes and replaced them with white knobs.
