Yes I've found a new love! We got the bedding on sale at Kmart for $40.00. The two white pillows were on clearance for $5.00 a piece and the mustard yellow pillow was a yard sale find for $1.00.
Lets get Jason's suede recliner out of the way for a better look.
The thing I love most about the dresser besides the strange layout of the drawers, is the legs. I want to find some way to make them stand out more. So I'm thinking a dark colors for the hardware and legs, and a light color for the wood.
Let me say I made Jason wake up Sunday morning in the middle of a tropical wave to help me move the dresser & take these pictures. Oh the things we do for love!
I had some left over paint from us painting our dining room and I've been trying to use it all up.
Once I finished painting the dresser I took some sand paper in 120 grit and distressed it some.
I then applied some water-based poly.
Distressed Furniture: Distressed furniture is newer pieces of furniture that have been conditioned to have the appearance of older pieces that have seen a moderate amount of use. The process for distressing furniture often depends on the style, the amount of distressing that is desired, and whether the piece is painted or stained
You basically want to distress areas that you think would be in contact alot. I chose to distress the edges alot, and only a little on the flat surfaces.
Unfortunately when we bought the knobs and pulls for this makeover they didn't carry them in black. So I had to buy some Rust-Oleum Textured spray paint, using it on the hardware and legs. I actually love them being textured besides smooth.
You like the stars? I bought two from some yard sales and gave them a makeover, using gold and tan spray paint and some painters tape. This project took a total of $15.00 that's including the cost for the stars.
Now we have a new dresser and slowly the room is coming together!
Thank you all for stopping by and I look forward to reading your comments.
