Old White & Paris Grey Dresser...

I love this simple dresser. My husband thought she needed a complete sanding so he took it upon himself to do that. I gladly let him. What a gem!
After that all she needed was some paint.



I went to work with these...


Here's how she turned out...


The shell of the dresser is Old White. For the drawers, I mixed the Old White and a little of the Paris Grey together. Due to the simplicity of the dresser I thought a little contrast of color was nice along with some new hardware from Hobby Lobby.




Simple and Sweet.
Just how I like things.

  17. There is something very "soft" and comforting about this dresser...I know that sounds odd, but the combination of the grey and white paints and the vintage lines of the dresser really make it attractive.
