I was so disappointed the other day when I rode through town to see the little thrift shop I scored this cute little dresser from had closed! I had such high hopes of checking in with them this summer to maybe find some other little odds and ends and maybe some more furniture.
I’m a sucker for furniture, especially tables and dressers and buffets. I’d probably buy every single one I liked if it was at the right price and was my style.
This dresser started out black and with no knobs. I was fine with that since I knew I wanted to paint it and probably would have changed the knobs anyway. There was no way I was going to pass up a solid wood dresser with dove-tailed drawers for $20.
I painted it with some paint I had left over from painting our cabinets, Benjamin Moore Advance Paint in White Diamond.
I ordered some knobs from knobdeals.com….very cheap, too! $5.94 for six of them! You do pay a good bit for shipping, but you still come out on the good end of the deal. In the end, it was $19.19 shipping and all. You can’t beat that! It can in just a few days though, so that was a plus as well.
I thought the knobs tied in nicely with the lamp I bought later on from T.J. Maxx. If there is something you don’t know about me, it’s that I believe in the power of lamps. The bigger the better in my book! I hate squatty lamps in a room.
So, there’s my new addition to the entry way. It makes me smile every time I pass by it, and that’s what making a home is all about.
Remember to see past the paint and the knobs. See past what it is and see what it could be, especially if it’s a steal!
