A dresser for the entry

I was at a friends house today and just noticed how cute her entry is.  I helped her decorate it years ago and I made this bench and shelf with hooks for one side.  It is the smaller side and the bench works out really well here.

But the other side has a longer wall and needed a table of sorts.  She used to have a sofa table type thing there but one day we were talking about getting something new for there and she remembered she had a small dresser that belonged to her husband's family.  I said "What, all this time and we could have been using it."  So she got it out of the attic and it was a little plain but I envisioned it with crystal knobs and a bright color.  We had just redone the living room off the entry and it has some blue in there so it was decided that blue would be perfect. 

We slipped in on down to our friend Michelle who painted it up with some chalk paint and distressed it. Oh my heck, it turned out perfect! It brought some color into the space and the knobs from Hobby Lobby really dressed it up. My friend is an awesome framer and she reframed a mirror that she already had.  We picked up a couple things for the top and of course a new rug and it was done.

What do you think about using a dresser for an entry table?  Maybe next week I will show you what we did in her living room right off this entry.
