GORGEOUS Greek Key O'Verlay Dresser- Amanda Carol At Home



Hi a' la moders!  This is Amanda from Amanda Carol At Home! A few months ago I ran across this AMAZING product from these uber talented ladies, Danika and Cheryle from O'Verlays.  These gals have created a way to dress up Ikea dressers, nightstands and tables with lightweight, decorative fret-work panels.








I knew I needed storage in my home office but didnt want to spend a ton of money so this was the perfect solution for me!


I bought the Ikea Malm dresser in white and added a white glass top.  




I then ordered the Greek Key fret from O'Verlays .


They come in white, which I could have just used them as is:






But I felt I needed a little more boo-ya bling so I spray painted them gold. Now Danika and Cheryle recommend you prime them first, then paint them; well you know me, impatient girl- I just slapped that gold spray paint on.  And so far so good.






I attached the little stickies to the back and secured them to my dresser.  Danika and Cheryle also recommend you use little brad nails to attach them to the dresser, but I didnt want to make any holes in mine in case I decide to change things up (which Im known to do).  So they seem to hold just fine.


Here's the BEFORE:




And the AFTER:














So much better!!  


I also picked up these beautiful magenta flowers from the grocery store last night.  Aren't they lovely?






I CAN NOT wait to get this office done!  Just a few more things to do and I will then have it photographed by my beautiful and wonderfully talented photographer and share the photos with you soon!

Now, I'm dying to share her whole office when she is finished!  Pretty please?
