I made a hall tree & painted it Mardi Gras....Care to see?

Update...  I had the wrong color name in the title.  The color is Mardi Gras...sorry about that!

Oh lookie...

I purchased this little dresser at an estate sale for $5, the door for $10 at Habitat and decided the two combined would make a lovely hall tree....


My husband cut the legs down to make it bench height.  And, now I can sit & put my shoes on :)

I changed out the handles on the dresser to knobs.  I just filled the holes that I was not using with wood filler.    I painted the door & dresser La Craie Mardi Gras & used dark wax.  I then attached the hooks on the sides.  I am in love & it really fills in the space nicely!

Not sure why there is a white glare - doesn't have it in person.

Here is a few pictures of the living area.




This is the picture next to the window. 


That chair will be getting a makeover, but I love it so much!













We are getting closer & closer to getting things done around here.  And, I know as soon as I think I am complete I will of course want to change it all up again!!

I hope everyone is having a lovely day!!
