1970s Dresser Transformed with Elegance

Jen from Migonis Home is back with another awesome piece that she transformed with one of our most popular colors: Elegance. She loved this new piece so much that she decided to change her living room around so she could keep it!

It’s not very often that a color that wasn’t at all what you thought it would be turns into the turning point for a mystery room. A room that was all beige. And it’s not very often that the turning point will come in the form of a 1970s dresser. But that’s what happened here.
One of the colors I ordered as part of the Country Chic Paint Blogging Squad was Elegance. For some reason I thought it was a light gray… but it was a robin’s egg blue that matched the pillows in my living room perfectly.

I loved the size of this piece and the potential. The molding is fabulous all around the drawers, the top and the bottom. I had planned to sell the piece but when I changed around the living room to put the piece on the longest wall I was hooked and knew it wouldn’t leave our house. And at only $30 it wasn’t breaking the bank.

The scroll work doesn’t even bother me anymore… Well, it definitely did bother me when I was trying to paint it… it took forever. Thank goodness Modern Family was on. 🙂

Thus far I’ve opted for no knobs because I haven’t found anything I want. I’m leaning towards just a tiny lip at the top of each drawer that is big enough to just pull open the drawer but so that it’s barely visible. What would you do?
