Ok, so I’ve had this dresser for awhile. And fortunately for me and everyone, the world did not come to an end this weekend, so I will get to enjoy my new dresser.
I love how antique-y this thing is. It’s incredibly old. My mom gave it to me when I moved to my last apartment in Auburn. While she always told me not to change it, I pretty much guarantee no one in the family even knows this dresser still exists, let alone where it or wants it very much (sorry Mom!), so I decided to not make it an eyesore in my house.
A fresh coat of white paint and some new hardware. I really didn’t want to take away from the oldness of this, so I wanted to find some really old looking drawer pulls. I thought it was going to end up costing me a fortune, plus a month looking online for 10 of these babies. But, I’m sorry, have you ever heard of Hobby Lobby? AKA drawer pull heaven? If not, you should get yourself there. I also got a really cool silk orchid bundle for one of my vases in the bedroom, and scored a sweet fleur-de-lis door knocker!
