So my last post was about a dollar store jewelry box and m&m's. I'm happy to report, the jewelry box's colour has been tweaked a little (more on that in a bit!). I'm sad to report my trip to the States rendered ZERO m&m's... I couldn't find them anywhere! So when I got home I called Nestle. Yes... I called the chocolate company! I might be a wee bit obsessed with these m&m's.
Well.. turns out the triple chocolate and mint m&m's are under review- meaning they aren't currently being made.. AhhhhhhHHHH. This does not look good for my favourite m&m's.
That put a damper on my day. Not to mention we got a whole lot of wet snow and rain today! I thought winter was on it's way out??!
However! I was determined to not let that stop me from finally painting my dresser!
So I ventured out in the rain/snow and got my pulls from Anthropologie:
I'm sure most of you are familiar with the Ikea Rast Dresser:
I've had various thoughts on what to do with this dresser but once I saw those Anthropologie pulls, I was done!
After I made my painfully expensive purchase, I raced over to Home Depot to get some paint. I have several shades of turquoise and seafoam green in my little collection but I didn't want to spend time mixing colours to get the right shade.
I didn't need a lot of paint so I was just about to get the tester paint for Martha Stewart's Hummingbird Blue when I passed by the "returned paint section" and saw this:
Not to mention it's:
Eggshell finish. Check.
Has primer included. Double Check!
Low odour. Triple Check!!
With just 2 coats and a protective finish, I was done! And I'm in love.
(I have so much of this paint left over that you can expect many more projects using this colour!)
Oh and that jewelry box I painted a few days ago? Well with my abundance of left over paint, I repainted the box so now it matches the dresser perfectly! As luck would have it, the hardware was a perfect match to the drawer pull hardware!
Who says you can't have tree branches in your bedroom?? That's the left over branch from Mia's 100 day celebration.
Finally my dresser is made over and I couldn't be happier!
Happy Weekend Everyone!!
