The Lovely White

Introducing... The Lovely White



This is an old dresser I was lucky enough to stumble upon one day.
Probably one of the best finds I've ever come upon.
It was a quite rickety and needed alot of work as you can see from close up pictures below.I managed to restore the missing pieces and with a covering of paint,
miracles can happen.



There were cracks and chips in the edges, then the detailed work on the front of it was all chipped off and coming off. So that took a little repairing.

Charcoal Grey China Hutch

This is a china cabinet I finished a few weeks ago.
I wish I could find a before picture but I couldn't find one.
When I got the hutch I had no shelving so I just measured the inside and ordered 2 pieces of 1/4'' glass.

Here is a detailed look at the bottom

Here are 2 little nightstands I finished.
They just needed a little makeover and now they're looking good as new. This was my experimental paint job which turned out way cute. They are a light grey with aged areas and white coming through.
My new favorite paint treatment.



and yes. My entertainment center Will be getting this color.
Someday when I have a spare minute.
So that is my new goal.

Lovely little Desk

This lovely little desk found a new home this morning. I finished it last week when I had time off. It turned out really good. I like that it turned out very neutral with the Charcoal Grey finish. It will look good in an office and not be too girly.



& Clothed
Thanks for stoppin by!

Finished Grey Dresser

This is a dresser I just finished. I kept the original knobs because they are unique little wooden knobs I don't see every day. I got this dresser at a yard sale and immediatly fell in love, knowing exactly what color it would soon be.
Dove Grey (sigh) .
That is not really the color, that's just what I call it. The color is one I mixed up.
& I did find a before picture

(after sanding it)

I was inspired by the dresser in this office. I just loved how simple the whole thing looks. So when I stumbled upon mine,
I was in heaven.
