A Thoughtful Place: Big Boy Room: Before & After Dresser

Big Boy Room: Before & After Dresser

Yahoo! Another project is checked off the list. My son’s Great-Great-Uncle’s dresser has been repainted for his big boy room. Many of you weighed in on the decision of whether or not to paint the drawers. Well, you all made a fantastic call. The dresser is now lime green and sporting some handsome dark hardware. Here she is in all her glory!

Do you remember what it looked like before? It was white with the chrome hardware. And a rather sad paint job.

The details on the paint job can be found here. Gallery wall details here.

I couldn’t be happier with the transformation. It’s the pop of color the room can handle and I love the new dark hardware. It helps to give it a more masculine feel as well as ground it in an all white room. I will give you more details on the hardware transformation this week. So what do you think? Did my readers make the right call on going all green?

  1. Wow! The transformation is incredible and it really makes the room -- I love how it isn't too bright green, but green enough (does that even make sense? ha) and the black hardware really sets it off. Amazing job!!
