The wood is beautiful and in great shape.
It has a marble top.
Check out that dovetail joinery!
I really love it. But I felt bad for it because when she gave it to us it was missing a drawer pull. And during our last move another one fell off. Despite glueing it back on it has fallen off once again.
So I thought I'd give our dresser a little TLC with a simple update- some new Drawer Pulls! Of course this was an excuse to make the trek over Fancy Drawer Pull Heaven (AKA Anthropologie).
There are a ton of awesome drawer pulls there! I spent some time sorting through them trying to decide which color and style to go with. And trying to not fall in love with the $8 or even $12 (!>@#!) ones.
Green to match the curtains?
Blue to match the accent color in my new rug?
A mix of both?
I finally decided on these guys. They are kind of antique-y looking like my old dresser and had both the colors I was looking for.
I unscrewed the old ones and put the new ones on. Quick, easy, and I think it looks great!
Hooray for easy updates! Have you done a quick update that makes a big difference?
