I finally have a furniture makeover to share.
It’s been a little crazy around here with the Haven Conference, sick grandchildren, and visiting relatives all happening the past 10 days.
Distressed Shabby White Dresser with Turquoise Knob.
You know, I guess I say this too much but……I really love this piece of furniture.
Seriously, I’m not patting myself on the back….I’m just surprised.
I’ll start working on a piece and before it’s finished I’m having second and third thoughts….not sure of the color, not sure of the technique, not sure of the hardware, etc.
And when the piece is finished it might look ok, or it might look good, or it might look like crap, or it might look great (to me).
I purchased this vintage dresser at the July Nashville Flea Market.
I loved all the curves and the door and the legs and everything.
I had to fill holes on the drawers. There were 4 holes on each drawer for pulls!
I decided on one knob and I picked up these cuties from Hobby Lobby. I had to make two trips.
I selected the large knobs and two smaller knobs for the top drawer.
I put them on and the small ones just blended in. I was in a hurry to take photos and get this post out so I made another flying trip to Hobby Lobby (good thing it’s only 10 minutes away) for 2 more of the large knobs.
I think the two trips were definitely worth it.
I asked the JTS what he thought of the knobs and he said, and I quote “They make a statement”.
I painted the dresser an off-white and distressed it very heavily with an electric sander.
The painting, drying time, and distressing took all of 3 hours. Really!
So what do you think of my distressed shabby white dresser?
Too much distressing for you? And what about those “statement knobs”?
