Kelly Green Chest of Drawers

Hello!  I've been on hiatus for a few weeks, but I'm glad to be back blogging.  This past weekend while my husband was in Chicago, I somehow managed to complete four dressers in my attempt to get our home organized in the midst of our chaotic renovations. 


I need to apologize for not taking a before picture!  I've been sitting on this chest of drawers for months now & there are no before shots to show you.  Just picture it an extremely outdated, dark brown chest of drawers w/ brass knobs.




It seems as though the back of my house is at a slope, doesn't it?!

I purchased the dresser off of Craigslist for $20.  It is solid wood and deceivingly heavy!  The previous owner added the new knobs.  You can still see where the old knobs were placed.  I chose not to fix it.  I have a knob obsession & I catch myself wondering what the original knobs looked like on this great piece of furniture.  So, in my weirdness & in memory of the knobs, their appearance still remains.  

I love this green!


Right now, it currently keeps all our puzzles & Doug & Melissa food toys organized.  I haven't decided if I am keeping it since I painted a long dresser the same color, but for now, it is serving it's purpose and giving us some added eye candy to enjoy.


It's not completely perfect, but that's just the way I like it...dents, dings, history, & all!
