Creamy White Dresser Makeover

Cream White Dresser 8 - EC

I purchased this sweet old gal from a friend of mine who was in need of thinning out her stash of awesome furniture pieces. Yes, I can help! This old beauty was so pretty AND she came with an amazing mirror. SOLD. She did have damaged veneer and was missing quite a bit of it - it also had a fair amount of animal damage I suspected from an overly energetic and unsurprised puppy. After much … [Read more...]

nightstand+021

I had picked up this dresser a few months back and had a vision for it from the get-go.  Then it sat.  I just wasn't married to my original idea.  I wasn't feelin' it.  So...finally I was bit by the inspiration bug last week (it just comes out of nowhere...I swear!) and my new vision was born.  I had wanted to paint a dresser a dark navy blue for some time so this fit the bill.  Here is the before … [Read more...]
