1 - Would you repaint this dresser, or would you keep the distressed look?
2 - What do you think about a dresser in a main living area such as a kitchen or living room? Is that weird?
3 - Do you know of a good place to find unique and inexpensive knobs?
This summer, I got a dresser at a yard sale for $8. It sat in the garage for a month or so and I finally got out the sander and went to town. I was originally going to just give it a quick sand so I could repaint it, but after I started sanding it I kind of like it. If I repaint it, I was thinking of doing a couple shades of blue, or blue and cream. Here's a few pictures. Tell me what you think!!
The previous owner apparently had painted the drawers a lighter color and then painted over them to match the rest of the dresser. I'm kind of liking the two-tone effect that the sanding brought out.
The green knobs had to go. The question is, what to replace them with. I had a few squareish knobs, that I was trying out, but I don't have enough for all the drawers. I'd love some advice on where to get unique, inexpensive knobs. I'd hate to pay too much for knobs when the dresser itself was only $8.
menuboards that I've been selling in my shop, Bits of Sparkle and Lace. Right now everything is in a plastic tub and I have to dig everything out to get to the stuff at the bottom. I'd love to have the dresser in the living room or kitchen. That way I can easily get the stuff I need as I'm making the menu boards without having to run down to the basement. BUT... Is that weird to put a dresser in the kitchen? Or the living room? What are your thoughts???
Please tell me your opinions and what you would do with the dresser! I really need some help with this one.
