Furniture Re Painted! Finally

It's been a while since I posted. Last week Husband, Daughter and her BF and I went to Disneyland for three days. We wanted to see World of Color, and waited in line many hours before it was cancelled. It was the day there was a 5.2 earthquake in San Diego which totally messed up their systems. Maybe in August.

So this weekend I finished painting a little white dresser we bought last year at a garage sale. I painted it --White! It is Glidden's Marshmallow White in eggshell finish.

The original knobs were in great shape so I just put them back on. It had a few damaged spots, but really only needed a fresh coat of paint.

It is 15 inches deep by 30 inches tall by 40 inches long. This little beauty is mostly made of pressed wood but is very solid and heavy. Good quality. And it's for sale, but alas you must come by with your own vehicle!

And how about this beauty? It is looong! And such great legs, has all it's pulls and get this, only $20 at a garage sale. It wouldn't fit in my Jeep so the lady let us put it in her truck and she drove it over to our house, about 3 blocks away. Heavy! Can't wait to work on it. I'm thinking white. Maybe a stained top, or white. Maybe the whole thing black. Distressed?
Tell me what you all think. I'd love some advice.
Have a lovely week.

Great job! It looks very snazzy in its new coat of white.

I have trouble visualizing things so I think it is great just white but once distressed I bet it would be lovely also.
