Now we have a walk-in closet (such luxury) but are still sharing a dresser, so when I saw this for sale on Craigslist for $100 I thought it would be perfect as a dresser for David, with some extra storage in the bottom drawer for bed linens/blankets.
At this point I had a brain-freeze and completely miscalculated how big the dresser was in relation to our Hyundai but the sellers, bless them, bundled the thing into the back of their SUV and followed me home with it (it was only a couple of miles).
It's a nice chest of drawers - about 4 1/2 ft high by 4 ft wide, has a distressed finish and the previous owners had replaced the original wood knobs with these ornate pulls.
The black however, was not going to work in our pale coloured bedroom. I played around with paint chips at Home Depot and found a pale green that looked really lovely against a really white-white so I bought a quart of each in the flat finish to try out the homemade chalk paint again.
I painted the body of the dresser white -
and the drawers green -
