My girls are 9 and 11 and they share a room. As you can imagine, storage is an issue. They have great closet space, but the amount of t-shirts, pj pants, mismatched socks, tanks and underwear are CRAZY!! Every few months I do a "ok, lets go through this stuff and get rid of what you don't want". They seem to only come across 1 or 2 items. I don't get it.
This beauty sat over in my "what the hell am I getting myself into pile" for months. I knew it wasn't up to most of my customers standards but look at those lines!!! So pretty and unique. I just couldn't part with it.
Their room is not lacking in color whatsoever, but there was no way I could put another creamy white dresser in their room. It had to be (another) pop of color. I used BM- sweet vibrations. Ever since I did a huge coffee table a few weeks back for a customer I have been dying to use this on a piece. But I know that it's not the easiest to sell something with such a strong color, so I am glad I found piece for myself to use it on.
I did some distressing because I had a feeling that the because the drawers didn't have rails, they were going to get a little "naturally" distressed anyway.
And because I am cheap and didn't want to fill in holes for new hardware, I just refinished the existing hardware in white. Which ended up being the perfect choice I think.
