I picked up this beaute off of Craigslist for $25, which was a steal! I searched and searched for a dresser just like this at the right price! Jackpot!
I posted about this dresser here and I originally thought that two tone was the way to go...dark walnut top with a creamy white, distressed base. But it was not to be. There were three holes in the top where a mirror once sat and a few major dings that would've caused me to sand through the veneer. I was bummed, but then I had a vision....I would use this piece as an inspiration for my mom cave (that I'm s-l-o-w-l-y putting together).
Here is what I came up with:
And staged in a better area...the room she's going to live in is currently a HIDEOUS blue and would not bring out her true beauty:
The large drawers have pulls from Home Goods. The small drawers retained the original pulls:
And because I'm so smitten, a few parting shots. This piece is certainly staying with me...she's the inspiration for my mom cave...and now I'm REALLY motivated to make progress on that room!
Thanks for making it through this long post!
