Here's the "before" picture. I've had this dresser in my entryway for years. It's a handy place for my linens, "fancy" flatware and serving pieces that only come out during holidays. Plus it's a nice display when someone walks in the front door. It's not bad, I was just getting tired of it. I really wanted to refresh it and change it up.
I painted it my current favorite color, aqua. Oh, and by the way, isn't the wreath on the wall cute? The mom of one of my preschool students made it for me out of a book using these directions as a Christmas present. She's so crafty!
Here's the view from the front door. I think it's a nice pop of color.
I put a couple of pieces of my milk glass collection on it along with some silver framed pictures from other parts of the house and the lamp that was on my night stand.
I also set out this gorgeous shell. A few years ago we had an exchange student from New Zealand who brought it to us.
The paint was a free quart of Glidden "Deepest Aqua" (thanks Frugal Girls) so total cost of this project: $0! I still have some paint leftover so I'm sure I'll be undertaking another project soon.
