The painted Dresser

Recently I decided the guest bedroom needed some fluffing and got busy painting a small vintage dresser that had been stored in the closet  for a while. I used left-over paint from a previous project and did my best to achieve the look that says:  They still love me, after all these years!

The oak dresser has several coats of paint on it,  the latest color is “City Storm” by Valspar. As you can tell I distressed it quite a bit after the painting process so that the previous color shows through.

It still has the original hardware (hanging on by a thread, literally) which I painted black and used some sandpaper to reveal some of the original color around the edges.

Here is just a sneak-peak of what I’ve been working on…..

Can I just say, at this rate it will take me forever to finish this room…ha!  Stay tuned!!

So glad you stopped by….love to hear from you!

On the Bench

I love benches, don’t you?  I’ve had one in the breakfast area and decided to move it into one of the guest rooms for extra seating and/ or a place to put a suitcase when our out-of-town guests arrive.   I would love to give it a fresh new look with some color….here are some inspiration pics from Pinterest.
