Dresser DIY

I deep-cleaned/staged my house this weekend because we are planning on moving within the month and desperately need this house to sell.  While moving furniture around, I decided that I wanted to glam up a chest in our bedroom.  My inspiration: 
the Dorothy Draper dresser.

It's a classic and can be seen in many designers projects these days. Check these out:

It also looks gorgeous in colors besides black and gold.  Like...

and white!

Which is my inspiration.  I love the milky lacquer with the gold rings!  In order to get this look, I plan on painting the dresser with this Benjamin Moore paint leftover from my daughter's nursery:

 And maybe use these rings as the drawer pulls. 

There are sooo many websites dedicated to projects like this.  The most appropriate one for what I am wanting to do is a DIY by Nancy Marcus here.   However, you can just do a google web or image search for "dorothy draper diy" and get a variety of results.  

Have a happy work-week!
