This Dresser is a Statement Piece!

As we made our move into our new home, it was time to get ride of all the “bachelor” furniture my husband had collected.  First to go was the big green nasty couch that every one of his friends has slept on.  It had to go! Next was the old rugs, worn out kitchen items and of course the half suede half leather furniture every bachelor pad in Atlanta had…needed to go!

Once we started to look at our master bedroom, we realized there really wasn’t anything to get rid of, but instead to the contrary, we NEEDED furniture.  We really didn’t have any storage, so I set out to find the perfect dresser.  I wanted something original and unique and I definitely wanted it to be a statement piece.  I looked at every furniture store and garage sale in town, and one day I ran across it.  It was a diamond in the rough.  A guy was selling it on craigslist for $35.  I had to have it!

With our room being a beautiful grey, taupe and shades of blue I decided Annie Sloan’s Aubusson Blue was the bold way to go!

After two coats of Aubusson blue and two coats of Annie Sloan clear wax….the $35 dresser I had bought just the day before had turned into a priceless piece right before my eyes!

This was the perfect addition to our eclectically beautiful master bedroom! Now it’s on to the next project….
