one of my favorite pieces of furniture

There is something about this piece of furniture that I absolutely LOVE! It might be all of the character that it has, or maybe because it is was one of my very first furniture fix-ups, or it could also be the fact that my husband grew up with it in his room? Whatever the reason, I adore this piece!

When I first got this piece, it had never been painted or fixed up, a true diamond in the rough. I was so excited to start fixing it up for my little boy's room. I sanded it, painted it, distressed it just a bit, fixed all of the drawers, bought new knobs, and added some small bun feet. My husband suggested that I get new mirrors and fix all the little dings and dents, but those are the things that add character and make this piece so charming!

  1. Aww I love how it looks! And the best thing is, when your little boy gets older, he can have it at his house and tell his family that your hubby had it when he was a kid :) I love sentimental pieces of furniture. And yes, dings and dents definitely add character! It shows that it's been well-loved over the years.

  2. A very sweet and sentimental piece for you, how wonderful! Thanks for sharing with us all :D

  3. I really like it, too! Love the mirrored door and and it's cute bun feet. Nice job!

  4. I can see why you love this darling dresser! You did a nice job jazzing it up!

  5. So cute! I would love to find something like this for my daughter's room....

    Stop over for a visit sometime!


  6. It's lovely. The dents and dings are the best part of a re-do. I painted a similar wardrobe that my uncle built for my aunt when they were newlyweds and I'm so happy every time I see it. Cream outside, apple green in!

  7. I love it! Adding the feet was a terrific idea.

  8. This turned out so nice. I love the hardware!

  9. Wow this turned out so well, you must be so happy with it. It's the kind of piece that every time you look at it you smile! Love the handles too


Thank you so very much for your sweet comment!!!
