Modern Pulls

I thought I had lifted heavy dressers before, but wow! Nothing compared to the weight of this guy. I decided yet again to leave the trim and center medallion on the few that have them for two reasons:
1. It wasn't overly tacky and gaudy
2. In order to remove the center pieces I would have to remove the outter trim, which I actually really love.

So the dresser and I met in the middle and agreed on a simple paint job and distressing.


I thought a contrast between more modern pulls and the old look of the trim was perfect!


Sean decided that the three more embellished drawers look much better at the top and I definitely agree!

I was going to ask the same thing as a pp...where did you find those pulls?

I linked to this today. I found a dresser in need of a makeover for a good price at a thrift store today. Sadly, I do not have the space for it, or your skills.

I just LOVE your work.....and I'm super jealous that I never seem to happen upon such great finds as you always do. :(

I just love your blog. I rush over to check out your new projects while I am looking at my long list of favorites (you joined it!). I am currently living in Japan but can't wait until I live in the U.S. again and can frequent thrift stores and try some of these things out. It amazes me that you have such a vision for the pieces. You also decorate the pieces so beautifully and they look like they jumped out of the pages of a decorating magazine. Keep up the awesome work!
