HELP! Which one?

Did you know that today is “Don’t Judge Another Person by the Look of Their Garage” Day? Okay, not really, but for the sake of this post, it is! Haha!

Alright everyone, I need your creative juices! I’m kinda stuck on a project.

I have this dresser, whom I hate.

Here it is in all it’s ugly splendor:

It was give to us when we first had June, and we took it… it moved with us, and since we have it I am kinda stuck using it as June’s dresser. A note to the poor (aka ME), “You use what you have,” right?

I’m trying to make the best of it, but it’s old and totally not my style. I stripped all the molding off of it to give it clean lines. But now I’m stuck with the drawers. Some of them are curvy… and textured, and I want a clean slate look for the drawers.

So using a little bit of photoshop help, I came up with two alternatives.

Option number 1 keeps the drawers, but paints them coral (probably will stenciled the inside of them too) I love the color this will bring to her white room!

Option number 2 totally gets rid of the drawer faces, replacing them with this awesome pallet I have.

My husband will probably look at me like I’m crazy if I ask him to help me with this one because to him it looks just fine… I mean, it’s only a dresser…. (He’s probably reading this right now!) To my amazing husband: I love your practical nature that keeps me from going too crazy babe!

But I love the rustic look to it, and it would go great with the theme of her room..

Sooooo, what do YOU THINK?

#1 or #2?????

Let me know in the comments below!

    #2! Love the style.

    I am on my own struggle with a shelving cabinet thing I bought for $1. It's white with a distressed look that I LOVE. But our apartment is all white and we are to poor to paint the walls but I don't want to paint over the white on the shelving because it looks so vintage. But white on white… not so great.

    I totally relate! Maybe you could paint the inside/back of the shelf, if you just want a pop of color. I personably LOVE white, so maybe just some colorful accessories are enough! 🙂

    Either option will look great once you get your hands on it. If you don't want to worry with the holes left by the pulls, there are many cute ones you could use that will fit in the same place.

    They're both nice, but I think my daughter would pick #1, it would make her feel happy.

    How old is your daughter? Can you let her pick? If it were me, I'd go with #2. The texture of the old, silvery weathered wood of the pallets will be so interesting and give a lot more teeth to the design… You could still stencil the coral on the inside of the drawers, so you wouldn't be abandoning the color entirely, just tucking it away.
