Fancytastic

/fan-see-tas-tik/

(adjective): Class and elegance without snobbery. Stylish lines. Totally awesome hardware. 

Yeah that's a legitimate word. It's right under "bootylicious" in the dictionary. 






Thank you to all who voted for the redo on this dresser.
It was essentially a tie between option 4 and 5 so I went with number 5. 

Except when I got the sample color for number 5 (Vintage Linen) it looked...funky.
Kind of like dirty moss...

So I chose Innocence by Behr. It's a subtle cream. 

And then I painted and lacquered it all and it looked...just not right.  

So I sanded the legs and a border around the drawers and used Tung oil on them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Moral of the story: Sometimes your (my) orignal idea is, well totally wrong. 

 But I love the final result!

It would be adorable in a nursery, or little girls room, or maybe in a powder room as storage for towels....or maybe not. 

For more info look under the For Sale tab at the top of the page.

  2. Very nice! I have those knobs! I bought some for my gray and white server but they were to small for the piece.

  4. Ha! I love the bootylicious comment. It made me laugh. And I love the dresser. The knobs really make me love this piece. When Jordan finally finishes school (in like 5 years) you are going to be my personal furniture designer. I am going to fly you out to whatever house we buy, we are going to scour around town for a week, looking for redo pieces, and then you are going to work your magic and make my house AWESOME!! It is gonna be SO FUN!!

    P.S I do plan on paying you. haha.
