This weekend though...while at the flea market...i got the dresser/changing table, night stand, & tall dresser...and i'm having some doubts. I know i can make it work, i'm just TIRED...and i wish i could just close my eyes and everything will be done! However, with the 4 day weekend approaching (and my 1 year anniversary)...i have LOTS of projects planned. How exciting. I told my hubby i didn't want anything...just some house work/nursery projects...and i think it's a fair deal!
check out my dressers (i haven't cleaned them yet, so excuse the crappy/dirty pics)...let me know what you think (can i make it work?) Also, if any of you have any advice on how to re-paint (i've already done my research) veneer dressers (YHL has a great tutorial)...let me know any tips...since i will attempt this-all this weekend!
what do you think? I know-totally retro/mid century...but it's the look i was going for. I'm debating on keeping the leg tips gold...and actually, i kinda like the knobs...but i need ideas.
I also found this, VERY SIMILAR dresser that is priced at $1080....
Isn't that scarry? Aren't they SO SIMILAR?!! And I want you to GUESS how much i paid. I can't even. The man at the flea market was selling it as a set...so i had to take everything (Long Dresser (not pictured), tall skinny dresser (not pictured), medium skinny dresser (pictured), desk (not pictured), night stand (pictured), AND MIRROR...all for $200...INCLUDING DELIVERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes...he even lugged it up to the room!! And i live on the second floor. I really couldn't pass it up!!
I am not going to use the tall dresser and the desk...and i'm using the mirror in my bedroom...so i really didn't loose out. My mom said she could use the other 2.
Also, i scored a great Cream shaggy (REALLY SOFT TO THE TOUCH) 5 x 8 rug at Marshalls for $129! Can you believe that!? It's sooooooooo soft, and i could probably lay on it all day. (I haven't taken any pics, because i have it away until the last day...so that i don't get puppy and kitty hair on it.
Rocking chair: i'm still up in the air. My mom has this (rusting) in her backyard for the past few years. I always thought it was cool...until i realized, it goes perfect in my MID CENTURY MODERN NURSERY...and i think i might use it...
What do you guys think? I'm thinking...spray paint it avocado? I need your help guys....please give me pointers/ideas/advice/thumbs up/whatever you guys want...i just want your input. If you've never commented...now is your time. (COMMENTS MAKE ME UBER HAPPY).
Tell me, tell me, tell me!! Please......................
