A Much Needed Makeover

Apricot Dresser 3 - EC

How cute is this dresser that I discovered for sale on Craigslist? Admit it...she is homely. She had some weird flowers stenciled on her and she was painted in a mauve paint. M...A...U...V...E. That is not even a nice word. Even my Emma mentioned how the hardware was upside down. Why yes it did look strange that way. Some may have turned up their nose and moved on, BUT some may see the … [Read more...]

A Lovely Dresser in Old White

Old White Dresser 1 - EC

A friend actually spotted this dresser for me and sent me a picture to see if I was interested. Well, of course I was. She had no trouble seeing that is was JUST my style. She was curvy and tall and had a beautiful mirror that just drew me in. Of course I wanted to buy her and remake her. She had great bones and natural beauty so her makeover was pretty easy. I wanted to keep her look light … [Read more...]

Rachel’s Washstand

Rachel's Washstand LAST

 I have titled this post Rachel's washstand because I purchased this piece as part of a trade for another piece that my friend Rachel purchased from me. I would say I made out well! How stinkin' pretty is this old washstand? The carved parts were amazing and I couldn't wait to paint this up so I could bring out the gorgeous details. The wood was in nice condition so I wanted to maintain some … [Read more...]

So I am behind and late, but I am … [Read more...]
