But I needed something for the front entrance of the house. I was looking for some storage also. You know, a place to put away mittens, and purses, and a few candles.
We picked up brushed nickle handles and they do add a nice touch. I will be painting the red mirror above it in the same shade of black. Quite the transformation, right?
I picked up this dresser for a song. I loved the legs on it. It was in pretty bad shape. It needed a good sanding and new handles. But the furniture was solid and the curves on the front gave it some interest.
Here is the dresser after a first sanding and when the handle holes are filled up. You can see one of the pups having a peek at what I am doing.
After a coat of primer tinted black, I painted the dresser with a colour called Black bean soup. It's not a pure black, it has a touch of brown in it. But from a distance, it looks very black.

How do you like my Eiffel tower lamp? That was the pièce de résistance for me. I loved the lamp as soon as I saw it and knew it would have a great spot on that dresser.
I am quite happy with the results.
