Dresser Re-Vamp x2 / Wedding Art Work

Drinking: Tea
Listening: Bombay Bicycle Club

Just wanted to share another project that I tackled this past weekend. Jordan and I were looking for more storage in our bedroom. All of our furniture is a hodge podge of mismatched items, though, so it was hard for me to figure out what to do. 
This dresser was part of a set my parents bought when they had me. The green paint is as old as I am, so we decided it needed to go. I had a lot of paint left over from when I did this re-vamp so I busted those cans of paint out.

I decided to paint the drawers black. I was going to go chalkboard paint, but decided against it at the last minute. 

The body was painted white. 

After a couple coats of paint Jordan brought it inside and shimmed it up for me. I got to decorating!

The art is one of the guestbooks from our wedding made by our dear friend Liz. I am so happy with how it looks sitting on top of the dresser. The carving is something Jordan's parents gave us once we got engaged and it's one of my favorite things. If you look in past pictures you can see that it kind of makes it's way around the house. :) One of my favorite parts about this dresser is the porcelain white knobs. They ended up looking amazing! 

I'm super happy with how this turned out! It's a little "stark" for me - but it's way better than the green that was on there. I'm thinking maybe a stencil on the sides or something with a pop of color to make it a little more fun. What do you guys think?
