A distinctively distinguished dresser.

A distinctively distinguished dresser.

Good morning.  (That’s assuming I survived attending the Haven Conference this past weekend, and working on the Habitat For Humanity house with GMC on Sunday, and gotten my kids safely off on their first day back to school today).  If so, it is indeed a good morning, and I will plan to be back later to share more of the events!  Or, I might be taking a nap.

But until then, please enjoy this makeover from Pelham at Urban DEN.  (I really like that name, Pelham.  I like to say it aloud every time I read it, in a distinguished British accent). Anyway, I’ve seen about a thousand of these dressers before, but I’ve never seen one done quite like this.  I’d say it looks very distinguished as well. I love the exposed top.  And navy and gold never get old.  Hey, I made a rhyme!  Yeah, I’m taking that nap now.

    I remember that checkerboard table. It’s a masterpiece. I would sit and gaze at it on your blog and just marvel at it. One of the best remakes ever.

    Wait a sec, your kids are going back to school? On August FIFTH? Wowzers.
    Here in the Pacific NW we have almost another month left!

    Haha, people try and say my name with a British accent all of the time!

    Thanks so much for featuring my dresser, Lindsey! My client that I made this for was thrilled to see it featured on your blog.

    Sounds like you had a blast at Haven…I think i’m going to have to check it out one year.
