But we bit the bullet and gave it a special make over. I debated back and forth between white paint and a red paint. I am very happy with my choice.
We kept the original hardware to keep the antique feel and age on it. I did not want any updates on this one! Although the paint covered up part of the detail I believe the sand throughs and distressing highlighted the wood designs on the outer sides and around the cute feet of the dresser.
I am in love with this piece! And so happy with the results. Faith's room is about complete. I am still playing with pictures to put on the walls and another night table. But it is coming together.
Currently Mike is working on another dresser. It has a bit of a vintage feel to it as well. Check back to see it!
