We're making over both our spare bedrooms before Daisy comes. One will be the nursery, and the other will be the guest room/sewing room.
I forgot to take a before picture of the high boy dresser intact. Here's what the drawers looked like.
Dresser afterwards. I painted the drawers and dresser tan/gray and the hardware flat black.
It's going in a room with this large dresser, which I refuse to paint.
I tried to pick a color that would coordinate with the large dresser's off-white tint. The large dresser has been around forever, so it naturally has that antique banged-up look. A lot of people are distressing their furniture these days, so why should I re-paint this perfectly distressed piece? Years of use and moving from house to house has distressed it for me.
The next step is painting the walls of the guest room/sewing room this weekend. Then I'll show you pictures of the furniture in place. After that, valance for the window! Then onto the nursery! Oh, the excitement!
