so, our apartment building has developed an unfortunate habit–instead of walking the extra 10′ out the front door, when someone has a small, unwanted piece of furniture they just leave it in our lobby. about a week or so ago, someone left yet another piece of furniture–but this one had some potential. it was a small metal table with a drawer. at first brandon and i were venting about the furniture pile-up in our lobby, but then we had a second thought–wait a minute, we sort of like this semi-junky piece of furniture. it had nice lines, and since it was metal it would be MUCH easier to paint (no wood to sand). brandon decided to tackle at least phase 1, and so here are the results so far.
i say “so far” because we originally wanted to put a decal on the dresser, but unfortunately it wouldn’t stick to the painted metal. my new idea is to make a fun design using contact paper sort of as a decal…updates to come. thanks to brandon for taking this on!
