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!

I like how it turned out:) You did good and it'll look so pretty when you get the time to bring it in and add your special touches to it.
