Another project...

With the couch nearly finished I've already started thinking about my next project. I really want to focus on my studio/office space. We just installed a closer system and now my head is swirling with ideas for the rest of the room.

I've had this old dresser since I was in high school. It's from the 60's or 70's and my parents rescued it out of a rental property they purchased. My dad painted it white and I've had it ever since. It has a matching nightstand that is taking up very temporary residence in our bedroom until I find a better replacement.

Mike and I sanded down the white paint a few months ago which had turned yellow from years of being stored in a Florida garage while I moved all around the state and detoured to NYC. After we sanded it down we weren't really sure what to do with it and I was about to get rid of it until we needed a place to store stuff while the closet was being put in. I kept thinking about a picture I had pinned on pinterest of a black dresser used as a credenza in a dining room that I just couldn't get out of my head. I realized my dresser had a similar shape and thought maybe I could try to re-create the look.  What do you think?  (I also love that turquoise chair from the inspiration photo.  I have a very similar chair I thrifted a few months ago that is begging to be painted a bright pop of color!)
