This dresser is HUGE!!

My friend brought me her dresser {of course I forgot the before picture}. I definitely had fun doing this revamp. Definitely tedious, but the result was amazing. Prepped the dresser first, then went with my fav, Behr Paint/Primer in one in the shade of her choice. After 2 coats {or so} I distressed all edges, and added a dark antique-ing glaze. This darkened up the color a bit, making it appear a little more "dirty", and makes all the edges darker and stand out more. Then I brushed on a gold glaze all over, wiped off leaving more in some areas than others. This took a while to get it looking exactly how I wanted. Just the right amount of shine on all sides/edges and drawers. Turned out super chic and elegant, but shabby at the same time :) I'm so in love with this, that I'm doing it again...this time on my own daughters dresser. The color choice on this piece couldn't have been more perfect!

My friend brought me this little side table. It was in pretty bad shape, i'm not gonna lie! Even my husband was amazed that it {actually} transformed :) Didn't take a before picture, but it's now perfect for her playroom!

Vanity Makeover



I had a client bring me this vanity to transform. It was a yucky/old oak, with really "pretty" floral fabric seat :) This was for her daughter so we spiced it up to a fun vintage look, distressed all over, and replaced the fabric with some cute stripes. It actually has a mirror that came with, but unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the whole piece set up. Love how it turned out :)

I am in love with this! Super unique coffee table, perfect chunky curves everywhere. Vanilla white, distressed all over to show it's age. Very sturdy. I love all the detail! I definitely do not come by these types of pieces very often. But this was one of my fav's! It's super antique, shabby yet elegant.
