This dressing table was a family hand-me-down that I was grateful to receive but couldn’t figure out how to use. It didn’t fit in my tiny “master” bedroom, and I don’t have a real office space… Turns out it was the only thing strong enough to hold up our TV, so a TV console it is. Ay, I wish we had a wall mounted TV…
I want to give a special shout out to the lovely ladies of the charming Metheny Weir shop who helped me out when I originally ordered the wrong color. Woops! This Chalk Paint® in old white is perfect!
The other half of the makeover story…
However I found these fantastic pulls at Lowes:
- Silver rectangular platform knobs, $3.47 each
- 5″ Brainerd vintage nickel bar cabinet pulls, $7.97 each
- 3 ” Brainerd vintage nickel bar cabinet pulls, $4.97 each
While my hardware is drying, it’s time for a little bit of minor “reconstruction” on this dresser facelift. Here is the plan…
Did you catch all of that? *grin* Nice and simple…I’m taking the end piece/legs off of the extension part and reattaching them to the base piece. Shortening this piece will make it is less clunky and awkward looking. It really was a simple task and required only a screwdriver and small crowbar.
Next I am attaching the end piece/legs via a wooden strip screwed into both pieces, and some wood glue.
