Old Beauty

Old Beauty 2 - EC

This dresser was an old beauty when I purchased her to makeover. She was blessed with good bones and amazing glass hardware. How could I resist? A woman that had purchased a desk from me noticed that I had purchased her and asked if I would make her over...she needed a new dresser for her bedroom. She asked for a grey dresser with a little color pop on the two knobs that needed replaced. Sure … [Read more...]

Fantastic Teal Buffet

Teal buffet 3 - EC

I purchased this gorgeous buffet MONTHS ago. For months, I used it as a workbench in my garage to put my hardware storage on top. It was a pretty piece to look at, but I had no motivation at all to redo her. The main issue was that her front leg needed cosmetic repair. Structurally she was sound, but she needed some DIY help. I hemmed and hawed about what to do and my indecisiveness paralyzed … [Read more...]

Milk-Painted French Washstand Makeover

French Washstand 1 - EC

 This washstand was too cute not to buy. I envisioned her with a makeover that would really be fantastic. Her previous owner had painted her in thick and ugly brown paint. Her beauty was hidden. But with a little TLC, her full gorgeousness was revealed! I gave her a sanding and painted right over that ugly paint as the paint was in decent shape and was not at all chipping off. I painted … [Read more...]
