Makings of a Trashy Dresser...

What plans do you all have for the weekend? A parade? Cookout? Nothing but laying out in the sun?

Well...I couldn't get the lawnmower started (seriously, sorry Jim...hahaha)....soooo..I decided now was the perfect time to get started on some of my painting projects around the house!

This was one of my grandma's hutches, which then became my dad's until he dropped it and broke the glass and some other little things...he was tossing it to the curb, so I ran over and grabbed it (actually..I gave Crystal first dibs, but she said she'd wait and see if she wanted it after I finished fixing it up......uh, try little seeester!)   Look at that poor pitiful old dog in the door...his boys are outside without him...
Aren't the corners beautiful?!? Dad was Going To Throw Her OUT!
Today will be spent sanding and smoothing everything out....then she'll get a couple coats of BIN primer.

I'm kind of torn on how to finish her off.....white with a dark glaze? A a beachy blue or red? I'm going to use it as an armour in our bedroom, but I'm not really sure how I want to close up the doors...fabric? Wood? Mirror? Frosted glass?

Ahhh...too many choices?!?

Any Ideas?

Love this piece! It has SO much potential. I was just thinking how nice some fabric would look instead of glass. make it shabby chic...with a distressed paint on it..maybe ivory or something else warm? You go, girl!

What a piece! I can't wait to see the big reveal! I'm thinking fabric, just because it seems easier.
