This finish may be exactly what I'm looking for for game cabinet. Stained top, the rest painted. May also be able to get this look with the white dresser from Melissa by changing the hardware? Would the mirror look ok in the painted finish?
Crafty Southern Mama: Organizing Back to School...I like this idea, but would need to adjust it to fit my home. Maybe a smaller frame with smaller letter and the hook for bag/purse next to it instead of under. Then i could put the shoe bench under that, and have it all against the east half-wall by the stairs.
