f a r m h o u s e    d r e s s e r

I finished my farmhouse dresser. I had this dresser as my kitchen island for several years but it really was a little too wide for that space. 
The curved feet on the dresser are fun, they match perfectly with my large farmhouse coffee table in my living room.
 The white school house desk that was originally in my living room where the newly painted dresser is, has been located to the basement playroom I am creating.
{this basement playroom is taking a long time, so be patient!}
{It must have been a sunny day when  took this picture!}

I painted the farmhouse dresser the same color as my coffee table.
{BM Covington Blue}
One coat of primer and two of the Covington Blue.

{it is a grey rainy day here in Western Washington, can you tell? I took all of the curtains down in this room to bring in more light, oh spring where are you?}


The one hiccup with this project was the purchase of drawer pulls. When I got to Cost Plus they were out of the pulls I liked online but I found some that I liked instead.


I got them home and didn't like them on my newly painted dresser. So I swapped the wood pulls on my tiger oak dresser with the new black fancy ones.



I love the mix of feminine and masculine.
Honestly, I am tired of decorating this room, I think I have it the way I want it now.
Now on to the bathroom and kitchen redos.
