When you find something you love whether it’s an image of a room or a piece of furniture, you can always recreate the look.  As seen in these two projects, the creation of a wood finished dresser with white drawers and ring hardware is a classic look, which continues to look good through various reincarnations.

What do you get when you cross an ikea dresser with a second -hand shelf?

Yep you guessed it, a fabulous work of art!  We like to think our dresser is painted prettiest of them all.  We started with an Ikea dresser…

that had been given, what we would refer to as, half a makeover.  The handles were replaced and the drawer fronts refinished in a funky stamp pattern.

We decided to add a second-hand shelf to the mix

We painted the shelf off white and attached felt feet to the bottom (it’s actually a wall shelf that we flipped upside down).

Then we painted the dresser box the same off white, and added funky white hardware to the drawers.

We furnished this entire room with second-hand furniture finds.  Can’t wait to show you how we did it!
