Sneak Peek

I have been working on this beast of a dresser for almost a month now. The holidays and life have gotten in the way but I finally found some time to work on it last night.

This dresser was so unloved before I snagged it. The previous owner painted the dresser black, added black knobs, didn't fill the original holes (look close you will see what I'm talking about), and also painted the sides of the drawers. What were these people thinking?


Under the black there was blue and under the blue there was white...sigh.

I don't want to give away too much plus this post is just a sneak peek!

I painted the dresser green and I distressed it more than I usually do.
Do you think it's too much?

The dresser came with black glass knobs.  I like the the black but I can't decide what looks better.
The black pulls or the white pulls?

Let's take a vote shall we? I would love to hear YOUR opinion!!!

Stay tuned for the final product. This piece will also be FOR SALE!


  1. Thanks for following me back. Love this chest of drawers even more - great colour. Knobs - I think the black too !

  2. LOVE this colour! It looks great, can't wait to see the whole thing! The black looks good too but personally I really love the white knobs!

  3. I would totally go with the white pulls :) Personal preference though! I think the white goes well with the white that shows through on your distressing.

    Nice piece! I would buy it :)

  4. p.s. I'm your newest follower ;) I can't wait to see what the dresser looks like when it's done!

  5. This looks lovely! New follower- Thanks for linking to Things I've Done Thursday! Happy New Year!

  6. Hi there! I love this dresser. It looks great! Both the knobs look good, but I prefer the white.
