Bye Bye Blue

Do you recognize this dresser?   

 You may recall this past June I refinished this dresser that had certainly been through a lot before it came to me!   

At that time, I had planned to keep it for our sons room which is why I went with a fairly bold blue.  

 Of course, after it was painted, I came across a different dresser that was going to work out better for his room.  So, I choose to list the blue dresser.  I guess the color was a little too bold because it ended up not selling.  Well, I decided I would take it back into my workshop and go with a neutral color.  I chose to use a warm cream I already had in my paint stash as it’s one of my favourite creams.  After the paint, I finished it with a glossy clear coat.

With the new paint color, I chose to go with all new hardware as well.  The top drawer pulls were purchased locally, but I wanted something a little different for the bottom drawers and ended up having to custom order them.   

I am so happy with the way this dresser has turned out – it’s now complete and ready for a new home!

Pretty in Pink

Sad to say I actually don't have any before pictures of this project!  I picked up this little rocking chair a number of years ago and had painted it a minty green for our daughter.  After a few years of use, I was ready to apply some fresh paint.

I chose to use a soft "vintage-y" pink and added a sweet little transfer I found online.  I finished it all off with a glossy clear coat!

It's now in my shop and ready for a new home.
