Woo Hoo another one off the list!!
I have been in need of a new dresser for quite a while (been using a broke one since moving in about 18 months ago) But I never could find anything interesting enough for my budget, which was basically nothing. And I also needed to do something creative – us art minded folks get itchy for making things now and then. So I enlisted my super crafty momma – did you see my halloween costume?!?! This lady is talented – to help me hunt something down that I could fix up.
We found this gorgeous lady at Reinvented Charlotte in NoDa. If you’re looking for vintage, go there!! They are so nice and you can either buy a piece and refinish yourself – or they will do it for you.
The black paint was a pain in the butt to sand off, but I liked the scrolly hardware.
All in All it only took about two days to sand, prime, then coat with the SILVER glaze.
I told crafty momma that I want to redo my room in a sophisticated, eclectic vintage, but kinda glam style… I may have multiple personalities, but at least I know who they all are. So this is what I ended up with. AND we LOVE IT!!!
Its so girly and fancy I think I’ll have to keep the rest of the room really neutral, but I’m really pleased with the matte silver finish! Also, I think I am going to have to learn to take better pictures…yuck!
