Let's try something new.

I'm trying to NOT do the typical Sierra thing... I'm trying super hard to have an actual game plan.

You see what you don't read here on the blog... Is that 99% of the time my plans are really me making a series of impulse decisions. For example, the last dresser I redid HERE I was literally standing in the Lowe's paint aisle grabbing paint and tape, not totally sure how I was going to do it. I didn't know what color I was going to paint it, until I saw some racing stripes on a car on my drive to the store.

Most of the time, these flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants decisions work out well. However, on occasion there are major flops (which I don't ever speak of again.)

So, for this dresser (since it's going to be somewhere in my great room, where everyone will see it) I want to have a real game plan.

Here is the dresser:

I love that the drawers pull by the sides, so no hardware is needed (and I don't have to worry about taking it off to paint.)
I sanded it down right after I took this picture, and it sanded so easily, it's some great wood.

I LOVE what this blogger did by removing the drawers to this piece:

But the drawers I have are in perfect condition, so I don't think I can justify ditching them. Although I love the color/style.

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE this look. I am not totally confident in my free hand painting skills, but it would be totally worth it to see if I could pull a win on this one:

And finally, I think nothing says comfy/homey like this butter dresser as seen on this blog:


So now that I feel sufficiently inspired, I am going to see if I can get started on this project. I may do a combination of a few of the looks above. Looking forward to sharing the end result! Leave a comment of your favorite look idea!
