{H}ot PiNk DreSSeR


{Zebra}Strips Dresser

I LOVE this Dresser.  It's Shabby Chic.
If I were a younger, I would be pouting until my {M}om bought this for me!!!  
{I'm not even kind'in}  
When my little girl gets bigger, I'm painting another one for her.

Demensions: 23"W X 18"D X 41"H

The scalloped edges a just darling and add to the details.


      The Story: This dresser was given to my brother by my mother forever ago.  He painted it BLACK {not in a good way either}.  After a while, it came back to my Mother.  She then gave it to me.  I painted it Forest Green {remember that trend} and added new hardware.  Then, I gave it to my Grandmother who had it until she passed away {missing her}.  I inherited it again, and then did this.

This is some of the {P}rocess:

The knobs haven't had the corners knocked off yet.  
I love the look of the brass showing through the knob backs.

Hope you {Love} it Too!!

Studio 5-How to Add Storybook Charm to Your Child's Room

When I was decorating Hailey's nursery, I had a hard time finding the perfect pieces.  I wasn't in the mood to refurbish anything. (Truthfully, after I was back to myself, I wished I would have refurbish pieces myself instead of buying new.  It adds so much more character to a room). I was seven months prego when I decided to get started.  It was ice cold outside with snow falling everyday.  

Anyway, after my Hubby and I spend a day out-and-about looking for furniture, I came home empty handed.  A friend's sister told me about this store.  It is about an hour South of me, and I headed out.  I fell in love with everything.  Hailey's tiny chandelier came for there.  It is worth a visit~trust me!
