The yawns are long gone.

If you are looking for a sturdy dresser that is way inexpensive and has surprisingly deep drawers, let me introduce you to the MALM.  This Ikea staple is a no-brainer winner all the way around, except for one little thing.  It’s super dupes boring. I just yawned looking at this before picture, for reals. Oh snap, I just yawned again.

But Amy at Homey Oh My! had an easy solution for this tragic case of the bores: add brass hardware to give it some campaign style! You can get the MALM in white or black, but I love how she painted the black drawer fronts white, leaving a border of black all around.  So schnazzy.

Shell Shocked

Friends, I have a teething baby on my hands.  Luckily for me, he gave up nursing a few weeks ago, or else I’d have a teething baby on my … something else.  (Actually, I am sad he isn’t nursing anymore.  I nursed my daughter for an entire year, but this time around we just couldn’t make it happen. Boys are harder, just my theory).

That has nothing to do with this makeover from Jen at A Thousand Words, but I tend to ramble when I’m tired. (I’m tired from the teething baby not sleeping ever). You know what Matt does when he’s tired?  If he falls asleep watching TV (and holding the remote) he’ll start turning the volume all the way up until the TV is shaking the walls and I wake up in a sheer panic and turn it off.  He never even wakes up at all!  This happens like, once a week.

Anyway, onto the makeover!  Here we see an mere shell of a dresser.  Jen found it on the side of the road and brought it home, despite the eyebrow of dubiousness from her husband.

Tada!  She refinished the top and build MDF shelves for the inside and now has some sweet sweet storage. And if her husbands eyebrows could talk they’d say “Nicely done!”

Taking the edge off.

I don’t know what is going on here.  It would appear that someone once spent about 45 seconds lining all the edges of this before dresser in gold spray paint and called ‘er done. Interesting technique. Perhaps they wanted to paint the entire dresser gold and ran out of time or paint (or motivation). Or maybe this look was … intentional.  *judgy eyebrow raise*

Who’s to know.  But I know I would have never invisioned it as a perfect piece for a little boy’s room, only that’s exactly what it became thanks to Elaine and her foresight.  So cute! Once again we learn never to judge a dresser by it’s badly painted cover.  See more at Visual Meringue.

Orange You Glad to See Me?

Knock knock!

Who’s there?

Orange!

*sigh* Orange who ?

Isn’t this orange dresser beautiful?  It was made with orange milk paint! I love it!

That wasn’t a very good punch line.  But yes, that dresser is pretty awesome.

I know!  See more from Reeves at The Weathered Door!
