Rockin New Dresser

This funky little fella was supposed to go to the shop and be sold,
but I decided to keep it because I fell in love!
"Huh?" you say.
Well it didn't still look like that after I got my paint splattered hands on it!
I found this photo on Pinterest from Julia at 551 Designs and it became my goal!
(I LOVE every bit of her design style and you must check her out!)
Julia named him Winston
However, I spent $15.99 on the dresser, so I was determined (and cheap) to work magic without buying anything and only using supplies I had on hand.
Here is what he looks like in my bedroom today.


I knocked off all of those brass medallions and
painted the brass strip between the drawers.
Lovin it with the leftover knobs from my son's dresser.


It has taken the place of the pallet dresser because I am selling that beast! My husband informed that if I was keeping this new guy I HAD to get rid of something.

He also looked at this for about 46 seconds in silence and then came out with, "I guess I just don't get the worn out thing?" His decorating sense is SOOOO 2002.

It looks awesome with my new headboard that I'm going to reveal next Thursday on Earth Day Thursday- I used ALL reclaimed materials to build it:)
I'm totally in love with him!
(This week anyway)
