I am really excited about this.
First off, we bought a dresser from IKEA and put a coat of polyurethane on top to protect it from water spills. Then we had the paint color of the dresser matched at Lowe's. We used it to paint two floating shelves that we already owned. And this is the result:
Close up of the hardware (all wedding gifts!)
What do you think? Anyone else have a coffee/tea area?
