Blue/Gold Before and After (sold)

If you follow me on Pinterest at all, you know that I have been obsessing over the blue/gold color combo lately. This is so funny to me because I remember back in the day thinking gold was the ugliest thing ever! My mom’s ring was SO outdated because it was gold and I couldn’t imagine not having the silver set for my ring. Well lookie who has been eating her words of late! I am in LOVE with gold! It can be such a fantastic statement color and especially when paired with a great, bold color.

When I came across this dresser I instantly thought the original hardware needed to be highlighted and the centerpiece of the dresser. It has this fantastic gold/brown patina and I didn’t want to mess with it at all! The dresser had seen better days as you can tell from this horrible phone picture.
