Yes, I showed you this picture in May. This has been a long time procrastinator project. Somehow hauling out the primer and black paint took a back burner to the everyday schedule of life with my 'lil punk-a-noodles. Now this beauty sits in the corner of my bedroom.
Not bad for $15 eh? See her sister in yellow? I collect old dressers. Truth: My new black dresser presently is empty. It's missing the entire back of the cabinet and the drawers don't work... but it LOOKS fabulous. I'm sure it will take me another 6 months to restore the drawer runners. The husband gives me a sideways glance... why did I knock myself out for a broken dresser?
Why? Because I needed black in that room to make it feel right. I needed an upright substantial piece of non-working furniture for a mere $15 to take up floor space so I wouldn't have to vacuum in that corner. And....?
....AND I'd steal horses for those knobs! $15 dollars is chump change for handles like that! I'm a sucker for a good drawer pull.
Now the room is balanced... though the dresser's not. I can roll a marble right off the top. Everything leans forward severely. That's fixable too right! Guess I should have closed that drawer all the way too. Shameful. No, this dresser isn't a waste of space. It's great storage, even if I have to support the drawer when I pull it out. I could keep plenty in them drawers:)
Now, I just need to finish this FREE dresser I rescued from bulk pick-up day on the side of the road. No, the drawers don't work, but they will... in 6 more months!
