make me pretty – did i mention green is my favorite color?

April 15, 2011

It is amazing that I don’t paint everything green. I love the color that much. Especially chartreuse – I like my green with a little yellow in it!

So when I found this fun little table at the Susan’s Selections warehouse sale I decided to bring back my favorite color. Here is the before:

And after:

I couldn’t resist a little fabric on the decorative corner pieces!

Ir you are in RVA and want to see this guy in person you should come to my open house art party May 14th. Hope to see you there!


make me pretty – one dresser two ways

January 13, 2011

Furniture is not my only obsession – I am also really into food and food tv shows. How many times has a top chef contestant described their dish as _____ two ways? Pork belly, asparagus, rock fish – whatever the ingredient, the point is to show how different the preparations can be.

So I decided to take a cue from top chef and re-do this dresser two ways. When some friends moved recently they decided to get rid of a couple of little mini-dressers/end-tables – yeah for me! They were a pair – a matching set. Perfect for my two personality experiment. Here are the before shots:

And the after pictures of the first dresser:

I tried a new thing with this piece – fabric covered drawer pulls. I make fabric covered switchplate covers all the time so I figured why not put fabric on some metal drawer pulls.

Check back soon to see how dresser number 2 turns out!
