Here's a little switch-a-roo I've just done. Back in October my friend Linda and I were at our favorite flea market (the same one Layla posted about last week) and she spied this little dresser without drawers or doors. Ya'll remember Linda, don't you? The one with the fab-u-lous cottage house. If you missed her pretty home, check it out here. Anyway, she thought this would look great in my bathroom filled with pretty white towels and other "stuff" (we all like stuff, right?). All this time, I've been thinking about that little run-down dresser and did I really want/need it. The chest I've had in my bathroom was a real "before and after" that turned out pretty good. You can see for yourself here. While I really liked that black chest, it really took up too much room and I filled it up with things that needed to be put somewhere else or thrown out. So, I decided to move that black chest to the guest room that is done in cream and black toile, and move this little dresser in, not so much for function as for form. A lot of inspiration pictures I've gravitated toward are featuring some dark woods mixed in with the all white scheme so for $45 (the cost of the dresser), I figured I couldn't go wrong. If it didn't work, I wouldn't be out of much money.
Here it is at the flea market (sorry for the blurry picture)
And here's what it looks like in my bathroom
I'm going to put some baskets in where the drawers are missing.
I've also been looking around for a little scale. I saw this one at the same flea market for just $15 so I grabbed it too.
I want to put some artichokes on the scales but I didn't have any for the "photo op" so I just used some faux pears. Some bananas, apples or other fruit will look pretty there too
