This photo doesn't even really convey what I mean... there are probably 1-2 more feet above that mirror that aren't shown.
So for the last few months, I've been on the lookout for a tall piece of furniture... something with drawers. Even a dresser.
When I saw Lizzie's post about her redoing a dresser (for what is the SAME EXACT wall in my house... we have the same model home), I knew I needed to do it for sure.
I wanted something about the same width as the table, but something taller. I found this $50 dresser at the local Restore (I LOVE that store!!)
Sorry I had already removed the drawers when I finally took the photo. It was a four drawer old dresser.
So I did the same thing as with my daughter's dressers... I made my own "chalk paint" by throwing a little grout into the black flat paint.
After three coats of paint, I did a little distressing on the corners and top, and topped it all off with furniture wax. (Oh I love that stuff!!) Then I exchanged the drawer pulls to this little brushed nickels one (found at Amazon for cheap).
Much better in that location. I hope to exchange the mirrors at some point with a big focal point (one big mirror or clock or something)... but for now, it works. Better than the short sofa table.
Of course, I had to add a tiny bit of pizzazz inside too... grey chevron shelf liner!!
And where did that sofa table go? Well, behind the sofa, of course. And a certain little puppy just loves the new higher elevation sitting spot. :)
