My daughter won't officially become a teenager for a few months, however, her dresser tells a different story. When we could no longer close the drawers I decided it was time to upgrade from her youth sized dresser to a an extra capacity piece.
I bumped into this dresser while thrifting with a friend. Here is what it looked like when I brought it home...
I fell in love with it immediately, but Hannah needed some serious convincing.
The finish was not very pretty. What I liked was that it was big (nine drawers) and
it had a great shape
and lots of special little details...
After a little makeover on the outside
the inside received a little TLC.
By painting the inside of the drawers with chalkboard paint, I'm able to leave notes in her sock drawers where she'll see them every morning.
The paint also helped to block the slightly "old smell" (as Hannah refers to it) that vintage pieces sometimes have.
We'll see how she does filling up nine drawers.
