This dresser has been a long time in the works. I rescued it (seriously!) at the end of September, you can read more about that adventure here.
I actually got it painted up pretty quick, it was ready to go at Thanksgiving (Canadian, that is, which was October 8). However, I wasn’t satisfied with the knobs. To me, they looked like pineapples, and they just seemed too big for the dresser. And besides, who wants pineapples on their dresser?
So, I ordered some crystal knobs off of ebay. Then waited for them to arrive… and then waited some more. They ended up taking about 5 weeks.
This is how it looked like before I started to work on it:

I transferred the graphic using the same method that I used on my french script coffee table, except that this time, I wanted a really crisp image, so I used sharpies.
That’s technically Christmas wrapping paper in the drawers. I found it at Canadian Tire, but I think you could get away with using it all year round. I’m always on the lookout for pretty wrapping and wallpaper to use as drawer liner, I think it adds a nice touch to the finished piece.
Hope everyone’s Christmas prep is going well! Lately, I’ve been making a few handmade gifts. I probably shouldn’t share them on here though, because who knows who’ll be reading this right ?
