Bringing the Beach Home in Mint Green


They say if you can't get to the beach, why not bring it home to you.  Yes, I'm craving vacation and this year it's Florida! I found this paper a while ago and knew I needed a serpentine dresser to apply it to.  Pairing it with the colors in the sky makes this antique dresser the perfect piece for any home.  Mint is easy to coordinate and will add a warm feel to any space.





The new glass hardware has a copper tint to it.  This really pulls outs the sand color in the picture. I love how they pull the whole look together!



I hope you all enjoy this makeover!  I'm not quite done with the "beach theme".  You can expect to see a similar piece soon.

Ombre Hutch in Turquoise & Blue

I don't know why I even bother painting any other colors.  These make my heart sing. I removed the original doors for more versatility. Now this could be used as a book shelf in an office or playroom. 


I made a big ugly mess in the garage, used 5 different colors, created a one of a kind piece of furniture and had a blast in the process! That's success in my book.








I've already received so much positive feedback today through social media.  I can't seem to thank you all enough for all the encouragement I receive on a daily basis. I am left feeling so motivated to continue this journey I'm on. This piece is available HERE on my Etsy shop. 

I'm linking this makeover to Miss Mustard Seed's Friday Furniture Feature! Click the link and sit back and enjoy all the wonderful makeovers.

Thank you, Friends!

Benjamin Moore's Old Navy Campaign Dresser

This is a custom painted dresser I just finished for a sweet friend. She's expecting her second child in a few short weeks. I'm thrilled we found the style of dresser she wanted before the baby arrives. This vintage campaign style is so hard to find!


Yes, I removed each piece of hardware ( with the help of my youngest son ) before I painted this dresser.  It was well worth the time invested, don't you think? I love the color contrast between the navy and the brass.  This is vintage furniture at it's BEST!






I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Blush Pink Triple Dresser

Some little lady needs this dresser in her room, don't you think?





The ornate detail is highlighted by the glossy white paint and well, the hardware is irreplaceable.  No way I'd have found anything better!



Hope you are all enjoying your summer!

Ultra Chic Striped Dresser with Glass Knobs

I pinned this picture on Pinterest a couple of years ago. It's a candy stripe window in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. I absolutely LOVE the colors and the bold contrast with the white. "A is for Angie" pinned it originally. 




I planned to do the exact colors but decided to change the golden yellow to coral.  The hardware is all silver glass. Frog Tape is so easy to use and helps with clean sleek lines.  I love it!




This dresser is available for $495.00.  I'm linking up to Miss Mustard Seed's Friday Furniture Feature.  Click the link and enjoy all the fabulous makeovers....inspiration for days!!!!

Happy Wednesday!

Abstract Painted Antique Table

You guys know I love to use bold paper designs o my furniture sometimes.  My husband always asks me when I'm going to free hand an image instead of using paper.  I am no professionally trained in any artistic way but I decided this antique table would be my first guinea pig.  I hand painted the top and then painted the base in the turquoise.  Aside from being sooooo much fun, I think it turned out okay!  Have a look!







I'm not sure I'll try this again for awhile but I'm super proud of myself for giving it my best shot. Thanks in advance for any positive feedback you may have for me.

Happy weekend!

Mint Green Ombre' Dresser and Me

It's time for another ombre' piece, my friends!  This time I used a mint green as my base color and had the lightest color fade to dark and then light again.  


I've been advised by other online business owners to personalize my work.  Do you think this oughta do it?!?!? Consumers are more likely to shop online if they feel a connection with the artist / owner.  So, here I am again, making a quick appearance.





Happy Friday to all of you!! Make the best of your Memorial Day weekend.
