Onto other things... I got a text from AJ on Monday morning, our trash day, it read: "Dresser at the end of the circle!!!!". Well, what do you think any good trash picking person would do? I drove Drew and I over there and tried loading this dresser into our car... until a truck full of guys doing landscaping came by and loaded it for me. I love it when that happens. :)
I'm sort of paint happy lately and decided to do this dresser in a feminine color since it has such girly lines on the bottom. It is Glidden's Ballet Slipper Pink:
The knobs are classic glass look-alike knobs I got from the Building Supply Store in Peabody. I staged the top with some sophisticated girly looking items, I just love gray and silver with light pink and used silver frames from Bed, Bath and Beyond, a silver rocking horse bank and the lamps I recovered.
Then, because I had so much fun staging this last dresser makeover different ways I decided to do the same with this one. For this photo I used two of the pink pictures from our bedroom because they were already off the wall due to some work we've been doing in there... more on that later this week.
This next stage is similar to the first one but with my favorite mirror that I use virtually every single time I stage something. I sort of want to just tell myself not to use it but I'm in love with it... what can I say?
Lastly, a very classic baby dresser...
This one reminds me a little bit of something Restoration Hardware Baby and Child would do... I found the most classic colored animals in Drew's collection and pulled them out and put them in our Emma bowl from Pottery Barn.
As for where this dresser is going...
If you think this is a not so subtle pregnancy annoucnement you are so wrong. :) If we ever have a girl the nursery will be like this mood board I did.
I'm selling it for $150 on Craigslist but if you are interested shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I have a challenge for you, Blog Readers... let me know your answer in either the comments section on the blog or on Facebook. Give me an idea of something I need to use to stage my next makeover (which will hopefully be next Monday, AJ and I are just brainstorming colors now) or the makeover after that. I'm not giving you any ideas on what color I'm going to use so just hit me with your best shot. :) Oh, and if you've been reading for a while without introducing yourself now is the perfect time to do so, I want to hear from you. :)
