Consider the Lilies..: Still didn't like the dresser..

Still didn't like the dresser..

I thought that after I had added new knobs and distressed it a little that I would be ok with the dresser..
By the way, distressed is the proper word for what I call "making it look old" or "junking it up".
Anyway the more I looked at it, the more I didn't like it.
So I went back and did more stuff.
This is how it looked before I did anything:

Phase two:

Even though I love the knobs, I was bothered by the sharp straight lines and the corners. 
Plus, the shiny white didn't really go with the rest of the room.
It just looked too new.
So I got some chalk paint (not to be confused with chalkboard paint) some corner brackets and took apart a hymnbook.
I asked my Facebook friends what their favorite hymns were and I used them (the ones I had) to decorate the dresser.
I know, it sounds weird but it worked!

Turns out that I really like refurbishing furniture. Who knew?
Clay said that when he gets home from this next hitch that he's going to clean out the junk room.
I'm excited because I want to turn it into a home office for him.  
I have a theme in mind and a few pieces of furniture to work on.
My sister says that I am pretty good at finding reasons not to leave my house.
She's probably right.
Stay tuned I guess..
