I've had several pieces of furniture that I've worked on recently. I just haven't had much time to share with you. End of school & start of camp, Haven Conference along with a few family activities had my mind preoccupied for a bit.
I had gone to visit my booth one morning & on the way back I stopped at Habitat for Humanity Restore. They had nothing and so I was walking out when I see 2 gentlemen unloading the back of a truck. TWO...not one but two beautiful bookcases one with a secretarial desk. I scored.
My van was loaded but as I was driving up the road to our house I noticed some stuff being thrown out by our neighbor... I couldn't stop right then, but let me tell you what I saw I was going back. I couldn't get home fast enough... I pulled into the driveway, grabbed my husband & said let's go.
I grabbed this old dresser...ok ok well my hubby grabbed it. I helped load it.
|Doesn't he look so very happy :)|
This is one of those score days that you are just like "YES"!!!
This dresser is one that I had in mind exactly what I wanted to do, and I had just been waiting for the right piece.
I have always loved the Ethan Allan J. Murphy Blacksmith sign. I mean not just love but LOVE!
I started out with this... By the way those knobs were stunning, but unfortunately not able to be salvaged :(
This was actually after a good cleaning!!
I did a reverse stencil using my Silhouette Cameo (have I mentioned...I love my Silhouette?) I then painted it with an Antique White chalk paint.
And...the final result -
I love it and would love to keep it, but it will be heading over to my booth soon. I will post pictures of the one I did for our home another day!!
I am also working on a weekly series that will hopefully be coming to you in the next week or two. Can you guess what I will be sharing with you on a weekly basis? Come back soon to find out!
With much love, peace & happiness!!
