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!
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.
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…
MINE ALL MINE!
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
at Embracing Change!
