Our place in NY has a lot of space, much more than we're used to. While that is a very good thing, it means that I'm keeping an eye out for pieces of furniture to add to our home. (Amit would probably say I have too much stuff, but technically I have lots of decor, not a lot of furniture.) Our second bedroom serves as a guest room right now and since our bookshelves need to be moved downstairs to fill the basement with some furniture, I needed something to add to upstairs. Since we obviously enjoy building things together, we've decided that if we need a new piece for the house, we're going to try to either build it or do a little re-do.
I found this dresser on Craigslist and since it was right in our price range, Amit ran over after work and snatched it up. I love the idea of two-toned furniture, like this piece, but we went with a more subtle look, based on this one.
Oops. I forgot to take a "before" pic.
Here's what I got!
(Amit didn't want to put the knobs back on the other shelves,
I guess I can't really blame him.)
Drawers are out...
Let the painting begin (again)!
