One day I just got the urge to update our bedroom. Unfortunately, the updates came to a halt after this one wall and the realization that we, in fact, don't have endless home makeover funds, but maybe someday I'll get my dream Stikwood wall, and if I'm really lucky, we might even get a bed at some point (after 11 years of marriage, our mattress is still plopped right on the ground).
All whining aside, I am happy with our one updated wall. We purchased this $40 dresser from a thrift store about 8 years ago, and it's a big, sturdy dresser so I didn't want to just get rid of it. So with a picture on my phone of the "Then" dresser, I made my way to Lowe's and got myself some Kilz primer, some paint (to match the trim in our house), and some classic hardware that both Eric and I could agree on. Eric and I both were surprised at how much this project changed the whole feel of the room. Much lighter and brighter. Success! Now, on to the next project!
