O wait. Who forgot to take a picture of the original dresser before any changes? I did. This will have to do. Note: the riveting football game on TV. Noah was probably rolling his eyes behind me for interrupting his view to take a picture.
It's a sturdy wood piece with outdated brass handles, some paint scuffs, & a couple dings. It also came with a glass top piece but wouldn't you know...I broke it. (That was fun to clean up.)
My efforts at transforming so far:
I've replaced the below handles with some simple oil rubbed bronze ones.
I've removed the drawers in the top along with the rails/spacers. My intentions are to lay some self stick tile for the "flooring", cut a few large holes in the back for ventilation & cords to store our gaming systems/satellite box/surround sound control in it.
What I need help with is the overall change of the finish. I'm having a mental block. If you need to see what the other side of my living room looks like see Betsy.
What do I do? Paint it? If so, what color? (I've already kicked white/black/baby blue/robin's egg blue/yellow out of the picture. My kitchen cabinets are green so that may be out, too. Unless it's a deeper green?)
I could restain it but honestly with a 18 month old in the house, I'm not sure I'm up for that.
I could leave it I suppose.
See what I mean?! I would LOVE some opinions. Pleeeease. :)
