So, I've been surfing the blogs to find pictures of what I missed! Maybe it's better not to know about all that chippy rusty vintage goodness!
Any-hoo, back to the BUSINESS at hand, the makeovers! I got this little dresser at a garage sale recently and I gave her a facelift.
Here she is. First I had to give it a good scrubbing. The rubber gloves and BLEACH kind of scrubbing. Then I painted the drawer fronts our signature Jamaican Aqua and sanded the edges. I was planning to buy some new knobs but I found these from a previous project and thought they fit the bill. I left the top and sides the original shabby HEAVILY distressed white because it would have been a nightmare to work with and I don't know if it's lead paint or just enamel.
At the last minute I decided to add a bird stencil. What do you think?
Yeah or nay? I just thought it added an extra something but I know stenciling isn't for everyone. Most of the time I'm not a fan but there are some great stencils out there these days.
Now back to the before, can you catch a glimpse of that grungy white framed old window on the left...
Say WHAT!!!Look who thought it was a big joke to jump into my picture. That Man Cub is up to his old antics.
I TOLD him if he did that I was going to take his picture and put his tiny hiney on my blog for everyone to see. He did it anyway.
I finally got a shot off, here's the after.
He wants to wish you all a happy Wednesday and says don't forget to stop and smell the lavender.
