Starting a project
When Gemma was a toddler the dresser moved into her room and became hers by default. But she never liked the dresser and over the years she beat that poor bureau into submission. The entire top was scratched, had water stains and spilled nail polish, and she totaled the mirror. First it broke off the dresser, then she destroyed to the point that it got tossed a couple of moves ago when she was in middle school.
From there the dresser spent the last 5 years in our downstairs bathroom where it held junk, tools, and a lot of Gladware tops. When we moved here I wanted to put outside our front door in the stairwell. It fit perfectly and was great for storing mittens, hats and scarves. But the landlord said it was a fire hazard and moved it back into the apartment where it has forlornly sad looking out of place and kinda lost.
I've been staring at it for a month, trying to decide what to do with it. And through all of the ideas I had, one stood out. I'm going to paint it bright white with an enamel paint, then cover that with polyurathane so the paint doesn't chip, and then I am going to use these rather bizarre drawer pulls.
I know they are bizarre but I LOVE them. I am a total sucker for stuff like this.I think the dresser is going to be the bomb once it is done. I can't wait to get started! Stumble It! JBlog Me
