Before I moved to my current largish two-bedroom apartment, I lived in a smallish one-bedroom apartment. Because space was limited, I needed all my furniture to be functional. Enter this dresser.
For the past year and half this dresser lived in my living room (really daughter’s bedroom) and
doubled tripled as a TV stand, dresser for a tiny fraction of my daughter’s clothes (3 drawers on the left) and linen/towel holder (3 drawers on the right). The two invisible drawers at the top held the TV and cable remotes and batteries. For some reason I have packs and packs of batteries in my house, but I digress.
I can’t remember where I got the idea to use a dresser as a TV stand (probably Pinterest), but it worked. I always hated the color but I couldnt bare to paint a completely brand new piece of furniture. Now, a year and a half later, my dresser is old and I have no qualms about painting it. Sure, I thought about painting it some POP color like magenta or cerulean blue, but I felt like that would be too much for the calming peaceful neutral thing I have going on in my new nest. So….
I went for the high gloss white paint (works well on very smooth surfaces like a new “old” dresser) + metallic gold dresser pulls. Isn’t it LOVELY!!!!!! I can’t believe I did this for myself. I plan to add a mirror (thrifted of course) and a couple lamps soonish. My immediate plan of action: get my pile of clean laundry off the floor and into these drawers.
I mean seriously, gold metallic spray paint is like AWESOME! This stuff just makes everything look rich and PRETTY.
All in all, I had a wonderful weekend nesting. What about you? How did you spend the long weekend? Make anything? Did you think about making something? Do share?
for a beautiful life,
