A couple of weeks ago I received a phone call from a very nice lady, named Karen, who had a dresser she needed to have painted. I gave you a sneak peek of it on my last post:
Here is the before picture:
As you can see, it was a Mid Century Modern dresser. It was in very good condition despite a few cosmetic issues on the top. The day before Karen dropped off this dresser, my Mom scored a pair of nightstands that matched this dresser perfectly:
When Karen seen these little cuties she knew she wanted them, but had to measure to make sure they would fit her space. Luckily for her, they did.
She wanted them Shabby White with black handles. The dresser was missing one of the original handles, so we would be replacing them all. She also wanted a nice graphic for the top of the dresser. This is what we came up with:
She did crystal knobs on the top two drawers, & we painted all the rest of the hardware black. I added a little stencil right where the knobs attach.
For the top we chose one of my favorite graphics from The Graphics Fairy.
I think the nightstands came out sooo cute!
Karen even made some very nice drawer liners with some pretty fabric.
We all loved how they came out. When Karen delivered the dresser, she drove up in a Prius. We couldn't believe our eyes, so when she showed up in the same car to pick up not one piece but three, we were all doubters. Well, after much conversation & trial & error between my husband, myself & Karen, we did it! If someone had told me they could fit a dresser & two nightstands in a Prius I wouldn't have believed it. Here is the proof:
The second nightstand is in the front seat. Talk about going "Green", she drives a "Green" car filled with "Refurbished" furniture. Can't beat that. Karen was thrilled with her new set & we have another happy customer! Thanks for visiting & have a great week! Dee
