Dresser Revamp

Note to self: Next furniture revamp take "before" pictures. And take all photos while the project is still outside. 
Lesson learned.
Sorry, no before pictures of the dresser other than this one you've already seen. I didn't even think about pictures until the first coat of paint was on and drying! What sort of blogger am I? Good grief...
Also, these photos weren't taken until Steven and I moved the dresser inside.
We definitely don't have good lighting in our bedroom, so I was forced to use the flash resulting in poor photos.
Sorry friends! I promise these photos don't do the dresser justice!
 I'm proud of my first furniture transformation!
Anyways, my {soon-to-be} mother-in-law gave me a 5 drawer dresser with baseball and football knobs. To spruce it up a bit, I painted two coats of a pale blue color onto it. I love the subtle blue and the girly, rose knobs she gave me, CUTE!
 Like my sideways picture taking? Don't judge. Yesterday was a loooong day.
She only had 6 of the rose drawer knobs, so I had to go buy four different knobs to complete the dresser. Little does she know that the reason I love those girly knobs so much is because back home in WV there is this little white dresser that use to be in my bedroom that has these same exact knobs! What are the chances? It's such a sweet reminder of home and my childhood :)
I know it's very feminine, but Steven said he likes it! So instead of putting it in the closet like we originally planned, we are keeping it on display in the bedroom :)

What do you think? Other than my subpar photo taking skills do you like the dresser?

It turned out beautiful. Those knobs are so beautiful and I really like the blue. Job well done! I do the same thing, about getting in the mode of living life and forgetting to blog document. It's called LIVING and it's a good thing ;) wink wink!
