I got this finished up over the weekend and I'm so happy about how it looks!
Here's the before of the dresser we got for free and have been using to store our kids' toys in the playroom:
And here it is now, after several coats of paint ("Peacock Feather" by Behr) and new knobs:
The knobs are from Hobby Lobby and when I bought them (at 50% off) they looked like this:
But the screws they came with weren't long enough to go all the way through the drawer front so Rob had to get new screws and washers for them.
So now they look like this, and I actually like the chrome better.
Remember how when I first started painting the dresser I was a little scared of how bright the color was?
Well all my fear is gone. In fact I love it so much I'm fighting the urge to drag it out to the living room.
But I love it in here- especially since our playroom is right off the entryway so the dresser is pretty much the first thing you see when you come in the front door.
And right across the entryway from the playroom is the dining room, where on a shelf sits the thing that inspired the dresser's new color:
I've never been a big fan of blue for my house, but the right shade came along and won me over!
