The new knobs (from Hobby Lobby) cost more than the dresser did. I did get them for less than $2 each though (50% off).
Here is why it was so cheap, it was old, rustic, and had probably been in someone's barn judging by how dirty and how many cobwebs I had to clean off it. And it was painted a barn red too.
I'd already taken the old knobs off and started cleaning it by this point.
After a coat of my favorite paint / primer in one (that I also used on my kitchen cabinets).
This new piece of furniture goes in place of this old shelf which had all my craft and scrapbooking supplies, and while it was kind of organized, it was cluttered and didn't look so great.
and NOW. I still have the blue filing cabinet, but I managed to hide it in the picture by putting my desk chair in front of it. It is painted "china white" (Benjamin moore paint)
and I moved the futon in here too, so now we have a comfortable place to read
how it looks from the front living room. Love this light fixture since I painted it.
my shelf even got organized with some of my owl collection and other favorite things
my other white chairs and table are now here:
I go back to work on August 16th so my summer adventures of painting furniture, garage sale and antique shopping are almost over.
But at least my house is pretty organized for now.
