Dresser Vision

20 Jun

OK – I desperately need a new dresser. My current dresser is wicker, with somewhat wobbly drawers, many of which (along with the knobs) have been chewed by my dog. Are you envisioning this gem right now? K. Needless to say, it’s time for a new one! However, I’m on a severe budget right now – I’m moving apartments, into a one-bedroom from a three-bedroom with two roommates, so not much extra money to spare. All that said, I think this little dresser project will fit that budget perfectly! I haven’t bought the supplies yet, but I’m guestimating the cost to be about $60 in total. I’m going to paint a little wooden Ikea dresser a dark gray color and add some brass detailing to make it look a little nicer. Here are some pictures for my inspiration – and I’ll be posting my own pictures after I complete! (P.S. – a lot of my inspiration came from The Little Green Notebook blog, if you haven’t ever visited it – do it NOW! I read it daily)

The actual dresser, folks

Love the brass detailing here

This is the exact same Ikea dresser as above! Crazy, huh?
