re-do take two
Remember this french provincial white dresser that I found at Salvation Army for ten buckeroos?
I originally painted it for my office.
But it has since migrated to Hannah’s room where the aqua color worked just fine.
Lately she and I have been planning her room in the new house.
Tip: a way to get an I-don’t-want-to-move-and-leave-my-friends daughter to get excited about the move is to involve her in the planning of her new space.
She’s going to be twelve in June…and I’m sad to say that she’s outgrown her cutesy Pottery Barn bedding that she’s had for the past three years.
Time for a little more grown-up room.
Something along these lines…And maybe some stripes like these on the walls… Danielle Oakley interiors
I let her pick the color palette for her new room and she chose black, white with lavender for a “pop of color.” Her words. 🙂 Someone’s been paying attention!
So over the long holiday weekend I repainted the dresser for her new space.
The color is “Enchanted” by Benjamin Moore. It’s the perfect shade of lavender. Not too pinky, not too wimpy, and not too Barney. 😉
Since one of the original french provincial pulls was broken, I needed to go a different route. Since I needed 9, cost was an issue. No way was I spending a ton of cash on a ten dollar dresser. Not. gonna. do. it. I selected some simple inexpensive white pulls from Home Depot.
I love the clean, simplicity of this dresser. And of course the nine drawers of storage. I think this will be a beautiful addition to a black and white bedroom while keeping some little-girlishness. It’s a win-win.
