Regular posting should resume shortly! I'm all moved in, not settled but at least everything is in here. It may be weeks until all my clothes are off the floor but hey, slow and steady, right? Meanwhile, new apartment means a lot of new projects! So I should have some pretty cool stuff to share soon :)
First up- this mid century modern dresser. I picked the handsome man up from Craigslist months ago with my new apartment in mind. I normally don't go for this style, but lately I've been having an affair with mid century design. Did I mention it was only $35, in perfect condition? Yeah. Baller status.
I liked the original color but decided I wanted to go just a little darker. The top was laminate (sad face) but everything else was either solid wood or real wood veneer (read: stainable).
I tested one to see the difference. Then I finally was able to get outside and do the rest of the drawers.
Because the top was laminate, I decided to paint the outside. I was originally going to go with white...but for some reason I can't recall I decided to go with a medium gray.
Yes... I was watching cash cab. I need to go on that show! I was killin' it!
It just wouldn't be a complete post without an appearance by Liam.
This corner of the apartment is looking a little bare at the moment. But after I finish a couple projects I'm working on it should start to come together.
So how do you guys feel about mid century pieces? I'm usually more of a traditional girl but I'm beginning to stray ;)
