Todays' post is about the Guest Room. This summer we were expected 3 separate waves of visitors so it was finally time to get that room going. That will be a separate post but here is the story behind the dresser.
I knew the size and shape I wanted and kept my eyes open at the online tag sale pages and when I went to thrift stores. The closer it became to the first Visitors, I didn't think it would happen. I figured I put a card table up for a place to put their stuff.
Then I saw his baby on my friends FB page. For $30 it was EXATLY what I wanted. Except it was ugly.
I took the drawers out and gave it a light sanding and wiped it all down. As I was priming it, the original idea was to paint it white but then I had a better idea...COLOR!!
The rest of the house is fairly neutral so I thought it would be fun to have some fun with color! I chose a light blue to go with a theme I have going in that room. Nothing crazy but something with just a bit of sumthin.
I was thinking of some cool pulls but since there was already a lip for pulling, it really didn't need anything more.
I went with Behr Salty Tears.
So here she is in her ivy-less, salty tears glory!
Quite a difference and I am so happy it was done for our guests to enjoy. There was a matching headboard which is primed but still in the garage. I will get to it someday.
Stay tuned for the Guest Room in its entirety!
