I am a little obsessed with anything French

Hello. My name is Holly Rhodes and I am a Frenchaholic. Yep that’s right I love any and all things French. The men, the language, the food, THE FURNITURE!

So now that I have come clean about my obsession lets get right to it shall we!?

I saw these two dressers on craigslist for $50.00 for the pair. (Oh yes there will be another reveal of another dresser!!)

I was very quick to e-mail and set a day to come and get them.

I was so excited to get them home. Really I love them!

The long one standing in as a sexy TV stand had to be painted by Thanksgiving.

And I got it painted… So here it is!


I was so excited to start painting I forgot to take a picture with all the drawers.
And here she is now:


Ok the deal with the one white drawer pull… I was experimenting and I didn’t like it! So they are all going to go black and some point! Maybe when the weather turns warm again? *hah*
So I like it and it matches our dining room table.
I do have a bit of a decorating identity crisis, I guess I will call my decorating style white French beachy farmhouse!
Sounds good to me!

What is your style? Do you mix it up? Do you stick to all one?

  1. oooh it looks beautiful, holly! and i am so glad you mentioned the one white pull... i was totally wondering what was going on there! :)
    have you been to big v lately? i took tiffany's group groove today- so fun! even though this girl can not dance.

  2. Holly it looks awesome! A dresser makes an amazing TV stand!

  3. For a quick fix on the handle, you could colour it with a sharpie marker...

  4. Nice job, Holly! I think I have a decorating identity crisis going on also - beachy cottage industrial chic! But it works for me and makes me happy :)

  5. I love your dresser!! My taste is anything but modern! I tend to lean towards the country/traditional/shabby style, but really...when I look around my is a huge melting pot of furniture types!

  6. It looks just awesome!! You did a great job and I do like the black handles best!

  7. That looks amazing! Great transformation! We've always had our TV on a dresser (well, until now) and I think they are so much more charming than the usual TV stand!!

    Your new bff, {I had to pop over here to meet you all formal like}


  8. Gorgeous piece! Wait till Miss Mustard Seed sees this one. :) You'd better hold onto it tight!


  9. This looks really beautiful. Glad you explained the white handle as I was wondering! :) A gorgeous dresser makeover. Sonia :)

  10. Hi Holly!

    Love what you did with the dresser, then again, I am a little partial to painted furniture since that is how I make my living, LOL! You did a fantastic job on the dresser, and yes I LOVE the style!!

    Merry Christmas to you!


  11. I love the curves of this dresser! It looks so fresh and crisp now....from dingy to loved!
