Happy President's Day weekend! If you're like me, you have tomorrow off and I hope you have plans to enjoy it! Weather around here is suppose to be 66 degrees and sunny...absolutely perfect in my book!
Anyhow, on Friday (which I also had off), I decided to finally re-paint my serpentine dresser! This dresser originally belonged to my great grandmother and after my grandfather passed away two years ago, it ended up with me!
You can read about the first time I painted it in this post here. It was back when I first started reading DIY blogs and doing my own projects and heirloom white was all the rage! So without knowing any better, I just went with that. Don't get my wrong, I loved the results in the beginning but realized that Heirloom White just wasn't my favorite - I'm more of a bright white kind of girl.
I also put the hardware on upside down and was too lazy to change it so I just lived with it like that for the last year and half...true story.
But since I bought a new sofa (a post on that is in the works!), I knew I needed some more color in the room. I was vacillating between a nice shade of yellow or an aqua and the fact that I had left over paint in the aqua ended up making the decision a little easier! Plus there's already some yellow in the new chair I bought, so aqua was the perfect fit!
I am so in love with how this turned out!!
I ended up moving the dresser back to this wall, too. When I originally hung the wall ledges and mirror it was because the dresser was in this spot as seen here...
But then I rearranged and switched my living room and bedroom ended up putting my desk on this wall. I liked it there, but never quite loved it.
(And of course, the above picture is a more accurate portrayal of what my place might look like on any given day.)
I'm really enjoying the black, white, aqua and yellow color scheme! It just feel so fresh and clean!
This print is something I found on Pinterest that fit perfectly into this frame. It reads "Sometimes the dreams that come true are the dreams that you never even knew you had."
I kept the hardware gray and just flipped them so they are back to the way they're suppose to be :-)
Overall, I am incredibly happy that I went with this color! It looks amazing in the living room with my new furniture! I feel like I finally have a grown up living room...I can't wait to show you!!
Until next time!
