Blue Dresser

Coffee Sack Pillow Giveaway here! (ended)

Having the whole beachy thing going on I can't get away from the blue ocean color. There is something about blue and white that is so calming.
I found this dresser at a sale.
I am so upset that I don't have the picture of the whole dresser before. This is what I do have:




The drawers are white and dove tailed. The knobs are chunky and wooden.







I found some glass knobs at Hobby Lobby at 50% off.


 I think these are much better




I painted just the drawers blue. Unfortunately the picture does not get the blue tone right.





After much sanding and distressing I attached the knobs. I painted and refreshed the white and distressed the heck out of it!





The blue should be much lighter. It is in person anyway!









I still need to wax it.  I love the knobs. Glass knobs are my favorite!






This old dresser had some paint underneath that I just let show through. It is sitting in my garage right now. Hopefully I can get it in the house and set it up with pretty things on it. Maybe some starfish! Then I will update the picture.


Don't forget to enter the giveaway!
