Finally, another piece for me! I have so many projects I want to work for my own home, it's just hard to find the time. I had a vision in my head about how I wanted to hide my son's legos! I found the perfect piece on Craigslist at the perfect price. Solid mahogany and hepplewhite pulls, be still my heart!!! I wasn't exactly sure what color I wanted to use but I did know I wanted to re stain the top of this beauty. I found this opps paint by Olympic at Lowes, just love this color, reminds me of the beach, which is where I live. After all, I am a flip flop girl living in a flip flop world :)
I just love playing mixologist!! I knew I wanted something bold and blue, but not a true turquoise. So I mixed about 3 different colors to get the Teal that I wanted. I already knew a lot of distressing was going to take place which I totally LOVE!!! And a dark glaze to add to the aged look and give more dimension. This is a solid maple Ethan Allen dresser, but definitely from a different era so that meant ugly hardware needed to be done away with and changed. I toyed with silver a bit but black and the acrylic knobs mixed with black just seemed to bring out the glaze more and I love the color combo anyway. Here she is!! What do you think?!
