As most of you who follow along probably know, I'm in a rental home now. It definitely needed a new paint job throughout. My first priority was to get my daughters' room looking as familiar as possible. It looks great, but after dropping over $100 to paint a room in a house that's not mine...I was over it.
Meet Jacob. The project piece I almost didn't buy! The photo the seller posted, made the drawers look super wonky. I was like....ehhhhhhhh. The price was right, and I was actually meeting the same seller to buy another piece so I look a look at this one. Y'all! I have fallen in love!!! If you're head over heels too, he is for sale - $375!
Isn't she a beauty!? I picked this little dresser up secondhand. Sadly she didn't have the traditional French provincial style drawer pulls, and she was missing two of the knobs the previous owner used. So, I decided to order some glamorous crystal knobs.

Here's how she was before. Pink and white is a cute color combination for a little girl's room, but she definitely needed a new paint job. I had to go back and refill the holes from the original hardware, too. It looked like they'd filled them with something...but it wasn't done very well. I think some fillers shrink over time.
Am I allowed to call this an entry way? It's not exactly a foyer, but it's my landing pad; so I'm gonna go with it!
I haven't shared this part of my house at all because it was so hideous. I literally called it 'no man's land'. It had dark knotty pine everywhere. I didn't like it one bit. Because I didn't like it, I sort of used it as a garage. I'd pile up pending furniture projects, yes I stacked dressers on top of dressers. It really looked bad in here.
Here it is on move in day. It's not the same view as the corner I'm sharing, but you get the idea....
