Dresser Makeover

I completely ripped off this dresser remodel from Aubrey and Lindsay's blog. They say imitation is the fondest form of flattery, right? I think their project turned out much better than mine, but I thank them 100% for the inspiration. It's a great way to turn my inexpensive (and actually pretty good quality) IKEA find into a more grown-up piece of furniture.

Liberty Oval Ring Pull from Home Depot (a steal for $2.10 each!)

Benjamin Moore's White Dove (Semi-Gloss)

I painted all the drawer faces which were then meticulously inspected by Aubie.

We loaded the drawers back in and installed the new hardware. Piece of cake! I completed the whole project in one evening. Pardon all the junk surrounding the drawers. It is all the stuff that goes back in them. I elected to hold off on staining the frames like my inspiration blog. I have a theme of unfinished birch wood through the rest of the room and wanted to keep some continuity. I like the new hardware but think it may be a little too ye olde for the rest of my things. Eventually I may choose to switch them out for some Anthropologie knobs (or cheaper knock offs from World Market).

Not sure if you can tell from that last image, but I also moved rooms last night! I love the new space! More on that later!
