Decisions, Decisions.

This dresser belonged to Bill's grandmother...it's now located in our living room.  The drawers are huge...it's a great place to store the things that aren't on display any given season. But it's showing some age....it needs some tender loving care.  Especially the top of the dresser.  I
 just can't decide what that care will be. 
Do I paint it?  Maybe decoupage it?  Maybe just give it a good cleaning and some fresh stain?  Whatever I do...should I do it to the whole piece?  Maybe just the top? 
Maybe just the drawer fronts?  Hmmmm......
It will take me a while to make up my mind about what I want to do....it'll take me even longer to actually do it!  In the meantime, I'll just keep the top of it camouflaged with all kinds of treasures!!


Here's a couple looks that I'm considering.
Pinterest to the rescue you know!!

I'm linking up with Be Inspired @ Elizabeth & Co.
So many ideas...so little time!!

I'm sure that whatever you decide it is going to look fabulous. It looks great the way you have it decorated right now

How about a combination of your ideas? Love the decoupage for the top and the numbered drawers. Pinterest is just a wealth of inspiration. I always have problems DECIDING on projects like that, too.
I love your arrangement on the top...you are so good at vignettes!

Hi dear blogging friend,
Thank you for stopping by yesterday. I love this piece of furniture! I've seen a lot of people paint their furniture coral lately. Also wide vertical stripes are beautiful. One piece I saw was painted a beautiful soft grey with wallpaper on the fronts of the drawers which was white with grey birds flying...beautiful!
I scrolled down to see your beautiful grands!!!! And your sweet mom! : ) Loooove that guest bedroom!
Take care Marie,

What a beautiful piece. I like the painted distressed look, but then there's the question of what color?! I know however you go about it, it will end up gorgeous. I really like the way your treasures "camoflage" it.

Love the piece, I would do black chalkboard paint on the top then a vintage gray on chest. Your writing is lovely, so you could write something special for different times of the year along with a vignette to the side . Pj

I struggle with these kind of decisions too. You have a lovely collection of items displayed on top until you decide.
