Sick, Shmik! it's dresser makeover time

So, I'm still under the weather. Some strange bug has hit me and my throat is dreadfully painful. I can't talk, swallow, turn my head, bend down... All and all it's been miserable. 

But I decided months ago to paint my bedroom dresser and I did! Oh Lord what a painful task if was and although I had tears in my eyeballs half the time, I forged ahead and got it done. As well as I could do!

In a week or so when I'm feeling better, I will touch it up again and make sure it's all in order. 

Here's the before; I don't think it was terrible, but in such a small space I needed to brighten it up and it does make a difference. 

Did you notice I left the top black? That was Jacobs idea. He's such a great helper =D Love him everyday more and more!!!

I spy paint on my wood floors. I will scrape it off tomorrow

Do you think I should go w/ brushed nickel or glass knobs? 

Or these?

I've been looking everywhere for some interesting knobs and can't seem to find some. Not even on Etsy. 

These I found at Uneek Glass Fusions and I would die for them, they are $24 each that's almost $300 for the 12 knobs I need OUCH!! But they sure are darling... 

Either way knobs will be on hold until next weekend, but if you know of any place I can get some cool knobs please leave me a comment and include the link.

BTW, do you think the antique WHITE looks too shabby? =D

Thanks so much for looking. Looking forward to your comments.

You did a great job! I like the contemporary glass fusion knobs. Perhaps you can find some look alikes at a home improvement store.

looks great, especially that it's two toned, love that! either knob would work...i guess it depends if you like a more modern or more romantic type style. with the straight lines in the dresser, i'd go with brushed nickel.

thanks for linking this up with my Show and Share party! It looks great (and I totally understand the paint on the floor, lol). I have found cute knobs at Cost Plus.
Also, have you been to the doctor for your throat? I suffered needlessly with this for 4 days once 'cuz I didn't realize that it was bacterial, not viral. I actually had this 2x in a year. :-P not fun. Hope you feel better soon.

I like the white Rosanna! Hobby Lobby and home improvement stores sell handles. Hobby Lobby has some pretty glass ones. Great job!! :)
