Hi everyone, hope you all had a great weekend. I wanted to share the other side of my master bedroom, the one I have never showed here before, mainly because I hated the furniture, and because I don't like to see TV's in the bedroom, but it's a necessary evil around here, so it must stay.
I really always wanted to replace this dresser, I was never really in love with the style, and the color, well, let's just say we got the wrong color delivered, and I was too lazy to call them up to get them to deliver the right furniture. I had been looking around for a new dresser for a while, but either the color or style was wrong (not making that mistake again) or the price was just not right. I decided to just keep old faithful, with it's faux stone top, and just finally got the courage to give it's mega glossy, fake wood a nice coat of paint.
I originally went with some leftover ASCP in bright white, love that I did not have to prime it, but the final coat of paint just looked mega streaky, I guess it would had helped had I been able to give it a third coat, but alas, I ran out of paint. I really think I'm way over this whole chalk paint thing...especially the price. I decided to head on over to my local Benjamin Moore paint store, where I got a quart of their new Regal line in Matte, color is Gray Owl. I LOVE THIS PAINT! looks flat, but I am able to wipe it with no problem.
So here are a few pictures of the before and during process:

And here is the final results:
This is the much improved version of my old dresser. I did two coats of the BM paint, I also spray painted the handles in oil rubbed bronze. The armoire that was in the corner got donated, and in it's place, I would love to put a floor mirror, but that will most likely have to wait a bit. The basket was purchased at Target. I borrowed the rug (bought at Costco) from my daughter's room, and I have to say, I love it here, I may have to borrow it for a little while longer ;) I know two hair balls who would LOVE that as well:
As you can see, they have made themselves at home here. You also can see Mr. Vixen on the wall above the TV, in all his silvery glory.
And just as a reminder, here are the before and after again:
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
