Antique Dresser with mirror

This stunning antique mahogany dresser with mirror was given new life with a coat of miss mustard seed milk paint in typewriter. I topped with a dark wax to give a bit more depth to the color. The top has been stained using minwax dark walnut and sealed with polyurethane. Unfortunately the bottom drawer was… Continue reading Antique Dresser with mirror

Red Check Chair

Friends, I just finished the most adorable red gingham check antique chair. My husband actually found this one and said it looked too pretty to not bring home. It needed a lot of love. As you can see the fabric was long past faded and grimy (ew). The bones of the chair were in great… Continue reading Red Check Chair

Dining Room Table Makeover

Happy Friday everyone! If you're reading from New England/CT area you are probably enjoying this amazing unseasonably warm weather! 60 degrees in Feb? I'll take it.

Stained Wood Drawers

I love this adorable antique 3 drawer dresser.

A few weeks back I finally had time to tackle it but had the hardest time deciding how to refinish… Continue reading Stained Wood Drawers

My vision for this project was classic stained top with a painted white base. My first step was removing the hardware and filling the holes with wood filler. I was… Continue reading Lane Cedar Chest

Boys Room Baseball Set

Woah! Happy September! Seriously where does the time go?! I'm not sure how I went so long without posting anything. I think I've come to realize I cannot do everything right now in this current chapter of life. When I started this journey I imagined quiet evenings spent in front of my computer with a glass of wine… Continue reading Boys Room Baseball Set
