To kick off good ole' January 1, 2012 (in style) I decided that our little monkey needed something flashy in his room. You know a little room bling bling! His dresser happens to be one of my favorite pieces in his room. It was a $50 Craigslist steal that we previously painted Glidden's Spicy Banana Pepper Yellow and simply updated with shiny hardware (every toddler's eye-candy).
I just felt like his dresser needed a new snazzy outfit so she could step it up a bit and raise the bar for all things thrifty. So the Hubs and I rolled up our sleeves, dusted off our work clothes and fixed ourselves some snacks. Armed in painters tape and a ruler we showed Oliver's dresser who was boss as we rang' in the new year! Seriously, we worked through the last few hours of 2011...doesn't that sound New Year's eve blastastic?! It totally was! And we couldn't be more happy with the update. She's a happy gal....just ask her yourself.
I really just LOVE how she turned out. And I still get to admire the awesome yellow peeking through that I adore so much! The project itself was less than $10 and the real amazing trick to this project's success was this bad boy...
In order to measure and tape out the pattern I used this creative gal's ceiling as inspiration....She truly sent me into awe with her entryway makeover and I just knew I needed to use this pattern somewhere.
So one project down for this new year and plenty more to go! What do you think? Dresser re-do fab or flub?
I hope you all have a fantastic day! I am off to make the world a brighter place....See you tomorrow!
