Our New Furniture Piece

January 14th, 2015 at 08:46 pm

Husband had promised to buy me a dresser for Christmas, but I couldn't find one I liked.

We desperately need storage for our house, so we thought a small dresser for a blank wall in the living room would be great.

A couple weeks ago we went shopping and were just going to buy one at homegoods, but I wasn't too enthused about any of them. I nearly settled for a $200 cheapo looking one, but decided at the last minute not to get it.

Well last night I was searching craigslist for the thousand time and finally found a winner!

Here it is in it's new home. It's so cute and only cost $100! Please don't mind our missing baseboards and drywall dusty floors! Work in progress...

It looks good in the picture. But in real life the color looks kind of greenish. (Our walls are actually charcoal grey)The way it looks in the picture is my favorite color, and matches our decorations. But in real life, I'm not so sure it's a good fit.

This picture is a little more true to color but still not accurate. And yes, we have a lot of board games stacked "hidden" under a table, and yes that is a lego castle. Haha. I wasn't kidding that we have no storage...

I'm considering repainting it a little bit more bluish. But what do you guys think? Maybe our dark lighting is just discoloring it, and I hate to paint it and ruin it. Sigh. I'll wait and see what husband thinks.

    Your new dresser is beautiful! I love the style!

    I like it!

    It is beautiful! You got a great deal. I would say live with it for awhile to decide if you like the color as is before changing it. I have several dressers I use for storage.

    Love it! I like the color and probably wouldn't change it. Smile

    I love it! But if it was me I think I'd paint it a bluer color (maybe robin's egg blue?)

  6. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    I really like your dresser. Neat style.

  7. klarse Says:

    Buendia, robin's egg blue is exactly what I was thinking. But husband likes the color, so I think we are just going to live with it for now. We are going to get a runner of some sort, maybe that will help.

    I've always wanted a bright blue piece of furniture!

    See, now, I would probably do something like paint it turquoise, but I'm in a brights phase at the moment. I like the way the color looks in the first picture. If you can match that, I'd go for it. I don't think you can really ruin a painted dresser by repainting it.

    I see your new dresser/ Christmas present as a wonderful, practical piece and wonder if you've decided what all you will store in it? My fav storage tip is to use appropriate sized, sturdy boxes, perhaps diaper boxes which are easily covered inside and out in MacTac type paper or painted if you have leftover wall paint and foam brush. These individual units are held in place with Blu Tac, pressure adhesive and hold whatever was planned.

    So CUTE! Smile I'd like it more blue also.
