Antoinette Sweetheart

pink 1- EC

This dresser was just TOO cute not to buy and makeover. Sweet, simple, practical. Those are good features to have now aren't they? I wanted to keep her soft and sweet so I panted this cute dresser in Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Antoinette which is the softest and most lovely pink.

Rustic Boxwood Dresser Makeover

BW 1- EC

My friend was selling a dresser that she had never got around to refinishing. I was excited to check it out as buying pieces is a challenge as there are LOTS of people painting where I live...makes me crazy.  Her BEFORE picture wasn't so bad...she was super cute and would be lovely with a little TLC. I had a vision about what I wanted to do with her right way! I used Miss Mustard Seed's Milk … [Read more...]

Boxwood Buffet: Quite the Transformation

boxwood beauty before

 I was interested in this piece when I saw it posted on Craigslist, but I wasn't 100% sold for some reason. I didn't know why, but I was uncertain and thought it best to swing by and see it in person. I figured I could be convinced. When I went to see it, I was even less sure. I thought it was kinda ugly to be honest. The owner used a can of deep red spray paint on it and it was pretty … [Read more...]
