Red Brick Dresser Unveiled....

A couple of years ago while thrifting I picked up this dresser.  I've had it all over the house including here in my bedroom.  It has a missing drawer but I've had a thin sheet of wood on it and it has been fine...obvious but fine.
Most recently its been in my livingroom but it wasn't looking right.  I had such a problem with its colour sitting right beside my red brick leather chair.  I LOVE the colour of my red brick chair so when I visited and saw how Julie had painted a dresser with Behr's Red Brick S-H-170 that was my next challenge.
My dresser barenekked in her tired colour....
and after 2 coats of her new flowing red brickness.....
She sits so pretty in the same shade as my favourite red brick chair....
Here is another pic with Abby on the sofa.  I feel much more comfortable with the flow of colour in my livingroom.  After painting the  wood sheet inserted in the missing drawer it now looks like it was meant to be that way. Visit Julie at Julie-Inspiredbyyou and see where my inspiration came from.  I have yet to decide whether I'll add the Espresso Bean glaze to finish it off as she did.  I love it...and I may do it.   Judi xoxo

Hi Judi! Oh, this bookshelf turned out beautifully! You're so good and the color is just perfect with your pretty chair! The open drawer spot looks good to poke things into!
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

Hi Judi,
What a great makeover! The missing drawer looks like it was always meant to be this way and makes it a more unique piece.
