Pinterest Inspired Dresser



Triple Red Stripes onto some furniture! 
This dresser was inspired by this picture from Pinterest. 
 I just loved the triple red stripes.  They just spoke to me.
I love finding beauty in simple things.

Here was what the dresser looked like before 
except the sides were covered in warped veneer.
I scraped away what was bubbled up and,
then simply nailed thin 1/4 in plywood over the top.


I used good old frog tape for my stripes on each drawer.
I wanted to add a little character to the top so I 
did contrasting stripes.  I had intended on painting the stripes red, but
once I took off the tape I just loved the wood peaking through.



I LOVE how it turned out.  I changed out the knobs to
some metal oil rubbed bronze for the final touch.  
This piece is off to our church fundraiser.  
I wanted it to appeal to a broad audience so that is another reason I 
left the wood tones instead of the red.

Weekend Features and Sister Sunday Link Party


What a week!  Hope everyone got a chance to check out one of our latest projects HERE!
Crazy how a year ago we would struggle to get a furniture piece done for a blog post,
and now we get so many pieces done a week to sell at our store 
that we hardly have time for pics to post on our blog!!
We are not complaining!!  We are living our DREAM and LOVING IT!!

ON TO THE FUN!!

ANTHROPOLOGIE Inspired Tables


Here is a before of a table that I found on the web.
I forgot to snap my own.  Its her basic 90s mahagony round table from a chain store.

I was inspired by this piece that I saw in Anthropologie!
Pic courtesy of my cell phone.



This is the first first piece I tried it on.  I love how it turned out.
It sold quickly from the store.
So I decided to do it again on a big table.  I love how it turned out!
 I free handed the pattern onto the table.
I used Annie sloan old white chalk paint and Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint.
I did some distressing magic and Annie Sloan dark and clear wax.
