It’s been quite some time since I’ve been able to finish up a project! Thanks to you all for hanging in there with me. The last couple months of pregnancy are not for sissies, that’s for sure! But I’ve got a great one for ya this morning! You’ll remember in my last post that I picked up this REALLY, really heavy armoire (thank goodness for my strong hubby) at a thrift store the other week.

I picked up this great dresser/armoire last weekend while on a thrifting adventure with my lovely sister-in-law.

I know it’s ugly and beat up, but it’s a diamond in the rough!! ;) It has three drawers behind the cupboard doors. So, I’ve been pondering what to do with it. A light, French gray is always tempting, but I’m working on another … [Read more...] about Armoire Inspiration
When I posted the graphic Damask Dresser I redid for my very own bedroom, there was a huge response to the project. (Okay, okay! So the projector giveaway might have influence a handful of comments.) I thought I might try a similar designed dresser to offer for sale. This time I decided to do a little shabbier take on the design. I started with this solidly built, but otherwise uninspiring large dresser.

I’m 16 weeks pregnant today! I can safely say that I am done with the “morning” sickness now. Hooray!! And I’m back with my first official project since I went down for the count around Christmas time! (Thanks to Cara for holding down the fort in my absence.) For my first project back in the saddle, I chose to tackles this great dresser I picked up for $15 (I know!) back in December. (I’ve had lots of time to think about what I wanted to do with it with all that laying around and moaning on … [Read more...] about Chevron Dresser (I’m back!)
Phew! That was a super NICE and much needed week off, filled with family and food (two of my favorite things.) With all the commotion around here leading up to the Camp Verde sale, then a week I promised myself would be time off from all things furniture and blog related, I didn’t get to post this set that I finished up! I thought you might enjoy it. :) It wasn’t a set originally, but everything works together so swimmingly! It began as this lovely appliqued sleigh headboard and footboard … [Read more...] about White Twin Bedroom Set
Just a reminder, that I’m going to be drawing a winner sometime tomorrow morning, so if you haven’t yet entered the Artograph projector giveaway, better get ‘er done!! Good luck!! … [Read more...] about Artograph Projector Giveaway Ends Tomorrow!
Have you ever been perplexed about how to get a cool design on a piece of fabric, or a picture in a book, or a graphic on your computer onto a wall or a piece of furniture? Well it’s something that’s plagued me for a while. I’m decent at freehand painting, but when it comes to symmetrical designs, or repeating designs or getting something really tiny to be huge, I have been stuck, so I started looking around for an opaque projector I could use for that purpose. I spoke to the lovely people at … [Read more...] about Damask Dresser & Artograph Projector Giveaway!
I found this awesome, nine-drawer, solid oak dresser for FREE on Craigslist. The lady said she was giving it away because it had been sitting outside and the top was all weathered, and it was missing most of the pulls. Neither of those things bothered me in the least because: A) the top being weathered made it easy-peasy to sand down to bare wood, which I wanted to do in order to stain the top and B) I was going to replace the pulls anyhoo! :) Yep. That’s one weathered top alright. … [Read more...] about Two-toned Freebie Dresser
Some of you might remember this fabulous, very OLD dresser that I picked up from Goodwill several weeks ago for $40 (that’s definitely in my upper spending echalons, but this baby was too charming to pass up!) I knew I could make some moolah selling it, but in my heart of hearts, I knew I was going to paint it white and keep it for my daughter’s room. A woman came by to purchase the sofa table I did several weeks ago, and asked if I had any dressers. I hesitantly showed her this one, … [Read more...] about My Daughter’s New (Old) Dresser
Sorry I’ve been MIA again. Last week was a whirlwind, which carried into this week, and I’m just now getting my stuff together enough to post. Saturday the 17th, Cara and I set up for our first try at a big furniture sale. We set up at a community wide yard sale day in a large, local subdivision. It was a gorgeous day. We were excited. But the crickets chirped, we had few visitors, and didn’t make a single sale. I was about ready to throw in the towel. How can we keep doing this if no … [Read more...] about A Custom Set for an Eclectic Salon
