Guest Post At Crafty, Scrappy, Happy!

Hello everyone! I am here to guest post today on Crafty, Scrappy, Happy thanks to a great opportunity from Jaime!  I just love her blog and I am honored to be here!  My name is Stacey and my blog home is Embracing Change.
 I would love for you to come by sometime! 
Just me
Me and my beautiful family!
      I began blogging a year ago and I confess it has become a passion of mine.  I really have no time for it as I am a mother ot two beautiful girls named Emma and Ana as well as a pastor’s wife and Day Care Center director to over 100 kids!   It’s amazing how we find time to do what we love, isn’t it?
I have a passion for decorating and thrifting as well as redoing and restoring unloved furniture!  I found myself at a point in my life where I needed change, but didn’t have the budget to do it thus my love of restoring and redoing what I had was born!  I find such therapy in what I do.  Painting is how I like to decompress.  I have discovered that finding a bargain and restoring it to beauty is a challenge I greatly enjoy. 
 This piece was no different. 
I managed to score a free dresser three weeks ago.
I was thrilled! 
I think dressers are my favorite thing to redo. 
I have redone several over the past year
including the following:
There is nothing like a beautiful dresser!
I love drastic transformations.
The beast to beauty makeovers.
I love taking the old and making it new. 
That’s my fun time.
So…back to the free dresser.
When I brought it home, it looked like this:
Dingy and old. 
Dirty as could be. 
And with a broken drawer to boot. 
No problem.
I have an affinity (obsession) for the French Provincial
style so this was quite a gem!
I love her curves and sweet feminine appeal.
I quickly got ahold of my vision which is always a key part of the process and then proceeded with the redo.
I have to tell ya, I am loving how she turned out!
I hand-mixed the pink paint and used
Annie Sloan’s Old White for the rest!
How does she look now?

Isn’t she just delicious?
My friend Megan and I have started a business of recreating furniture and home decor called The Blessed Nest.  Typically I send almost everything I recreate there, but this one is…
If you have read my blog before, you know
that I name each and every piece I create.
Her name is Perfect Priscilla.
I think her personality just shines through!
And she is PERFECT for Valentine’s Day as well!
I adore her…hope you do, too!
Thanks for allowing me to stop by and visit Jaime.
I am blessed by your kindness!
Come and visit me soon – hope to see you
