OK, so I finished painting my bedroom. Onward and upward to the decorating!! I'd had a dresser picked out (I posted a photo of it in another thread) but when I went to see it I realized how small it was and and I really need much more storage than that. I've been in some deep conversations who a lady who does furniture refinishing, and has a garage full of stuff she'll refinish whatever way I'd like! She has a tall dresser and an armoire she says she'll refinish for me with chalk paint and wax. Both pieces will cost me under $300, an amazing deal! The dresser is currently white, and the armoire's old and beat up but won't be when she's done. She's going to finish both in that shade of red chalk paint I like. I may also get her to leave off the doors because I've seen some adorable armoire photos where curtains have replaced the doors and I LOVE the look!! Or maybe matching bins on the shelves. I have SO many ideas for what to do with it to make it look attractive and eye catching rather than just a boring piece of furniture. Here's a picture of it in its current state. There are two or three shelves for the top there, a back piece which isn't on it right now, that drawer, and then the doors at the bottom open to another shelved area. I'll replace the hardware with....something. While I'm waiting for the furniture to get done, I need to find another desk. Unfortunately the one I got is just too low...it's giving me back and neck pain. I hope to find one this weekend!
