I love decorating. I love decorating with very expensive things. I also love having money in the bank. So, in an effort to make all of these things work together, I took matters into my own hands, and found a way to take an affordable dresser and update it to match the more unique look of something you may see from a high end retailer like Z Gallerie.
Here is the process:
I started with the
I knew I wanted to add drawer pulls that would give the dresser a look that is 100% me. So, being that I am hooked on crystals (think Spencer Pratt, not pre- eyebrow piercing Fergie), I was looking for a raw cut crystal look.
First, I found these (literal) gems at Anthropologie:
Now, I am every shade of #dbsobsessed with these, but like I said, I was trying to do this without spending too much money, and at $28 a pop, I wanted to find something for a little bit less. On to the next....
Whenever I am looking for alternative item in the decor department, I make sure to check out Etsy. That wonderful Etsy did not let me down! I found the most amazing shop, LandiDesigns. This shop has every kind of crystal/quartz drawer pull you could every imagine.
I fell in love with the 'Custom One of a Kind Natural Citrine Druzy Drawers Pulls Knobs' (can you say SEO?). At $14.99 each, it was a better deal than the others I found, and they are also larger, and add more to the drama of the finished product. Additionally, since they are not from a national retailer, they are more unique and not something I will see elsewhere.
So, once I had the dresser all set up, and the pulls arrived, I switched them out, which took all of about 3.5 minutes. Here is the finished product, and I could not be happier.
