I got a smashing deal on a slightly damaged chest at Pier 1. My hubby was able to fix it up for me and now it's brand new again!
Remember how I wanted it to look like this:
The color I chose was Majestic Blue by Benjamin Moore. It's the one on the top row second from the right.
The hardware that it came with just wasn't fabulous enough for this beautiful color. After searching the internet and digging around for some new hardware I decided it was best to try to recycle and reuse some of the hardware from our old kitchen.
Here is the hardware in it's previous life:
Hideous!!! I know! It's a good thing that the picture is blurry because otherwise it would hurt your eyes! It looks much better spray painted and slightly distressed.
Here they are in all their glory:
It also felt good to just reuse something that I already had. Money saved and less ugly stuff from the 70's in the dump!
And now....TA DA!!
I love it! Isn't it just dreamy?! It has great storage and doesn't take up my whole bedroom! Not bad for about $72!!
I am tempted to paint the orchid pot a bright purple or magenta. We'll see what happens.
Even though I nearly spray painted my entire left hand and was looking like this guy...
....expression and all...it was well worth it!
Hope you all love it as much as I do!
Have a fabulous weekend!
