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.

You just need to know how to buy the right one and the trick to using it. Lucky for you, this guide will give you all the information you need to pass the horror that is a urine drug test. In simple terms, synthetic urine is fake urine created in a laboratory. This concoction duplicates the essential chemical and visual properties of urine biologically produced by humans. It is typically made up of urea, uric acid, creatinine, and other such compounds. Synthetic urine is becoming an increasingly popular and in-demand product. This demand is not just for passing drug tests anymore. For heavy smokers, the THC trace remains in your blood for quite some time and can be detected for up to two months. One of the most popular types of drug tests is saliva testing. • Synthetic urine cools off even faster than regular urine. When you're hiding the sample, make sure you're letting the body heat keep it at the required temperature. Open the safety seal only before use, and the heated powder that comes with the kit can quickly raise the temperature of the urine. Therefore, it is apt for any unprepared last-minute drug testing.
