Dresser Makeover Trash to Treasure Style

High Style Mid Century Modern! 

I am so happy with this piece! It may have started out, ugly, dated and sooo tired but it turned out so very cool.


The gorgeous hardware is original to this piece.  I just sanded the nasty black paint off of it. 


This piece evolved as I went.  It is NOT my original plan. So keep in mind...  this is so much harder than it looks! I really do love the end result, though.



Brace yourself...here is the "before" shot of this piece!!!


Hope you enjoy this makeover and have yourself a wonderful Saturday!!!

New Pieces in the Shop!

Sometimes, it's really to nice to find home accessories or accents that I love but don't really have the room for them. These two pieces are that, really special but I can't seem to make them work in our own home.  So, they are now listed for sale and looking for a home.  Have a look...





Amazing details!!






I love these bamboo nesting tables!  



Both of these pieces are available now on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.

Have a lovely weekend!

Turquoise Dresser Featuring the Sea at Dusk

Hello Friends!
I'm really excited about this makeover.  I walked passed this dresser at least 4 weeks in a row.  But then...I had a vision...







I can't wait to see who buys this and I'll have to ask where they plan to put it in their home.  This is truly a one of a kind piece of furniture!

Here is the dated "before" look...

Much improved, right? This piece is available on my Etsy shop, HERE.

^^^I'm linking this piece up to Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Feature Friday^^^

Emerald Green Corner Shelf

I have walked passed this type of corner shelf so many times but this one stopped me! I LOVE the details on this one. All it needed was a makeover, taking from granny's corner shelf to a modern gorgeous accent piece. 
"BEFORE"



I applied the paint in a glossy finish, added the amazing Anthropologie knob to the drawer and applied the green and white ikat paper to the backs. I used a spary adhesive first and topped the paper with a coat of polyacrylic to seal. I think the result is so very pretty.




I added just a touch of gold paint to the beaded trim.  Do you like?

Enjoy your evening!

Around the Shop

I've been working on a few things this week...


I took the staging to the great outdoors!  Anytime it's 85 degrees, I look to find ways to stay outside.


I found this amazing Franco Albini style bamboo rocker and foot stool!  It's for sale on my Etsy shop.

My Abbie girl became my furniture model...I didn't ask her to lie there;-)


I'm sure you've all seen this type of shelf before, right?
Well, it will NOT look lie your granny's shelf once I finish my makeover on it!
Stay tuned...this is the before shot.


And, just a little goodness on your Wednesday!
White, mint and gold... { So Good. }

Enjoy,
