Repurposed Vintage Dresser


Just a quick post on a little dresser I had in a guest room that needed some updating and new purpose.

This dresser was blue and I used Annie Sloan Pure White to paint it.


This dresser did not have any knobs so I found some old door knobs in one of my storage bins and decided to bling this girl up.


She needed some character knobs to go along with her vintage body.

While digging in the storage closet for the knobs I came across these sweet little white ruffle drapes.  I forgot I had these.  So I only had two panels and thought hmmm where could I hang those.  Office window was perfect.

The way the light comes in this window it is hard to get a picture without glare but they are soft white and give some whimsy to my office.  They are definitely me.
There you have it.  This vintage dresser repurposed for storage in my office.
Have a great week.

  4. Really cute and it's always a bonus to find those things we stash away and forget about. Unless it's a bag of fruit. That never turns out well. :)

  13. L O V E how you used the old door knobs.

    You have totally inspired me to get off the window seat - although I planted 17 agapanthus plants in KC's garden this morning. Steve just left to meet with a customer who has commissioned a 10' x 4' painting and will be gone for an hour or so. I am going to move a big piece of furniture right now that I have wanted to move for a long time.
