Lovely Yellow Dresser

This old but pretty dresser was given to me by a 3years ago!
At that time, I was just busy taking care of my 3 little kids and had no time or energy...
But finally, I mean, FINALLY ,the youngest started kindergarten and I've got free time to work on it during the day :)

First, I sanded it down and primed.
It had a little too beat-up-look to my taste, so I filld some holes with a wood filler.
( I love wood filler, I can fix anything!! well...almost, that is.)

I painted it warm yellow.

For a finishing touch, I added a furniture applique on one of the drawer and a piece of molding on top,spray painted the original handles and added crystal knobs on the top drawer.

I really like how it turned out.
It makes me smile everytime I pass in front ot it :)

  5. i understand how you could become attached to them haha!

    i will keep checking back for more items!

    how much would you sell the black nightstand for?


  6. Everytime I finish my project, my husband asks, " So, are you going to sell it?" and I reply ""
    He's more business minded than I am...

    As for the black nightstand,I would for $75 or obo.
    I'm thinking to apply one more clear coat on top so it'll be more durable.
    If you are interested please let me know.

    Thank you,

  7. Very pretty! I love the white accents!
