I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday with family and friends! We went to Arizona and spent our time with Hubby's side of the family. It was a fun time! I had one super quick furniture redo before we went and it came with us...a dresser for my nephew. Hubby and I found this one at a yard sale for cheap and it was in decent shape.
And yes, you read that right Hubby went to the yard sale with me. There's hope for turning him into a junker yet!
Anyway, I have seen some really awesome stripes painted these days on chairs, desks, and dressers and I thought this dresser would work with stripes. I did check with my nephew and brother-in-law to make sure they were okay with my idea and they said go for it! I kept the dark wood top, sides, and feet, but freshened them up with Old English. The drawers and the lighter wood I painted cream and then taped off and painted red stripes. The red matches his Arizona Wildcat themed room...Go Cats!
I think it could go nautical also.
I was kinda nervous about his reaction...he is 16 and I my "cool" and his "cool" are not on the same level most of the time. :) I think it passed the test though! What do you think?
