My creative space lately...

A little while ago, I saw this dresser at the Salvo's for $20. I was very tempted but my better half was cracking down on the amount of junk thrifted treasures I was bringing home. I was heading away that night for a few days so I expected it would be gone by the time I arrived back home.

Lo and behold, it was still there. So, I took it as a sign it 'was meant to be'.

My dear old dad collected it for me and we sanded it back and gave it a lick of paint.


The paint is a very pale blue/grey called Vintage Blue'. I forgot to take a before shot but it had a brown lacquer on it. I added some pretty glass knobs and it has a new home in Miss 10's bedroom.





I love the shape, the legs, the mirror and I really enjoyed working on this little project with my dad as well.

Love a good little project and this one has turned out so well, the shape of the legs really makes it. All it needs now is a little string of mini bunting across the top....
