It's so sad to the end of the summer drawing close :(
I can say that it has been a fun, productive, adventurous, exciting, relaxing, sometimes hectic, but overall delightful summer! I have been doing a little traveling, a lot of reading, visiting with friends, and meeting some new ones along the way. As always, my camera was with me along the way and so here is a lil of this & that and a bit of here & there.
So I've been taking an e-course on Creativity and seems it has got me thinking creatively about some of my furniture. I've been wanting to do something with my dresser, and after getting some courage from Brooke over at All Things Thrifty, I decided to jump right in. She has some great info on painting furniture and a lot of other great info as well.
So I grabbed a few cans of Krylon's Bauhaus Gold spray paint and got to work.
Here is the before:
And the after!!!
I wanted to do something different for the drawer pulls. So I jumped on one of my FAVORITE sites, Etsy and found these great antique water valves that I thought would make awesome drawer pulls...
What do you think of my furniture transformation???
After finishing up with my dresser, and realizing how easy it was, I thought, "My living room could use a little bit of mustard yellow"...I've really been dying to paint my bookshelf!
I have to say that I'm very happy with both of my projects and the bookcase seems to lighten up the rest of the room.
I also made some changes to some other things around the house:
Made this memory board at a scrapbooking class last year and decided it was time it played a different role
So I added some small nails to the wooden hanger part and
Can't you tell I love color
I found this lollipop at World Market and just loved it!! I thought it would make for a great photo prop
And this one because...well sometimes I feel like God gets a good laugh out of my life. It sometimes seems that it is a low budget film and sadly it has never been a romantic comedy. No its more like a sarcastic, slapstick, strange british humor type of comedy (but with really good shoes)
