love this idea!!!! use picture frames, beautiful old drawer/ doorknobs. How fun to use those crystal knobs from dummy doors... create a great artist storage unit (stretched canvases in large area for future use, brushes and supplies throughout, paper block, paints-finally organized and protected!)

Inspiration i vitt

Hej. Nu var det länge sedan sist. Det har hänt mycket på den här tiden. Min butik i Kristinehamns skärgård har stängts för gott. Dubbla hyror var kravet för att få vara kvar och det är inte under några omständigheter lönsamt. Jag hade bara fått jobba och slitit ännu mer och det är omöjligt. Jag beslutade mig för att avveckla,sälja ut och magasinera för att så småningom öppna upp på nytt igen. Nya Levvackert kommer att öppna i ett 1600 tals hus,ett sädesmagasin i ett av Kristinehamns finaste…

I love the old glass doorknobs. Have one on the door going into my livingroom. I think i have a box of them downstairs and now i want to find them.!

How To Paint Furniture: why it's easier than you think!

Last year some friends gave us a set of old dressers before they moved to the beach. The dressers were in decent shape, but definitely needed a little work. I just knew I was the girl for the job. And so do all my friends, which is why I've never been able to park in our garage. Not once. You win some, you lose some. This dresser ended up being one of my easiest makeovers ever because I've learned a few new tricks since my last makeover. Here's what the dresser looks like today, after just a…

How To Distress Using Paint

I would like to show you a easy way to distress using paint. This is not your typical way of distressing either. Let's just say this is cheating a little ;-) Originally I was going to paint this coco but then decided on Annie Sloan Duck egg blue.

I was so excited when I found this beautiful old piece! This half moon dresser can easily double as a buffet- the mirror comes off and is attached from the back so the top is completely finished. Subtle black glaze accents features and very light shading on the drawer fronts and cabinet doors ( see the last pic for shading- it was so bright out when I took these pics!). The Doors open with an old PO Box key. :)

Antiqued white with sea blue drawers distressed. I love the glass knobs too

At Long Last...

This dresser has been sitting in my garage for over a year, ever so slowly, transforming, metamorph-ing (not a word, I know) into this... Painted in CeCe Caldwell's Antique White and ASCP Duck Egg. I left the original glass knobs on it, but I can't make up my mind about them... Opinions are welcome! :) This piece is now SOLD.

"Ruby" Red Antique Oak Dresser

We bought this dresser and got a phenomenal deal at only $40! It needed tons of love. I started out wanting to restore the top and chalk pain/wax the entire base...until the hubs convinced me to restore the drawers as well. As grouchy as I was to start those, I love the results. He loved it so much he said it was definitely a keeper as soon as the red paint dried! Please check out my blog post for details onc the restoration and painting process!

Love this idea!

Turquoise Dresser Glazed Black - Before & After - Facelift Furniture

One of the most exciting things about glaze is how it accents detailed, ornate furniture pieces. Combined with a great paint color, glaze draws out all the character of a weary and worn piece of furniture just waiting for a new look. Take this dresser for example. After sanding major wear on the top, it …

Dresser Makeover

I am completely redecorating my daughter's room right now..(and then the boys)..it is giving me some good projects to keep me busy and not think about being really pregnant. We looked for a few weeks at garage sales for a good old wood dresser and lucked out finding one for $15! I didn't get the before pictures, but imagine honey wood finish with lots of scratches and marks on it, but otherwise in great condition. And now the finished pictures: I simply sanded the dresser and primed, then…
