Green Dresser: Take 2

Remember this dresser?

Well, it was just a tad bit too small for the area and for my storage needs, so I found this guy on craigslist.

Not the prettiest, but it's solid wood, which is a huge plus in my book. It's so hard to find solid wood furniture at a decent price nowadays.

I painted it my fave green, Behr's Lucky Bamboo, with a coat of Minwax Early American.

I replaced these old, shabby handles...

with some jute rope.

I wasn't in love with the curvature on the top drawer, so I took it out, removed the top piece of moulding, painted the inside of the dresser, and replaced the drawer with 2 baskets.

I think the scale of this dresser is much better compared to the old one.

But as much as I love this dresser, I'm already thinking of replacing it with something else! Egads!!

It turned out so beautiful. As creative people, I think we are never satisfied and always looking for the next project to conquer. That's how we continue to master our craft. I get it!
