Built in Dresser - Argyle Style

We live in an older home and it has a ton of storage.  
The Bathroom, Master Bedroom, and my Craft Room all have these
Built in Dressers.

I decided that my Craft Room needed a makeover and this is what I have done so far.
Yes you can see that the walls are now purple, 
and I LOVE THEM!!!

Before:


Here is a close-up of the lines, maybe you can guess what direction it is heading from here.


After:


I can't believe the interest it added to the room and what a fun feature instead of just a storage option.
I opted to spray paint the handles and hinges silver instead of leave them that antique gold.  
The silver is soooo much better!

Was this a lot of work?

Heck YES!!!

It really was one of those projects that after I got started 
and seen how much work I questioned why I had even started it. 
I am so pleased with the end result though.

So what do you think?

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Laters,



I'll be linking up to these parties...

  2. Thanks Tausha! My hubby was a HUGE help in getting the lines straight and even. The dresser itself isn't straight so it was a big task.

    I have really enjoyed it though since it's been finished.
