Cute Old Dresser~~~

    If you've followed my blog at all you'll remember last year I got the best mothers day, birthday, christmas present...the awesome vw bug on the right side of the blog.  It wasen't exactly street worthy at the time and so it has sat...and sat...for about a year and a half.  Well, Trent,(hubs) decided he was getting it running for Christmas this year,  only he's not much of a mechanic.  Fortunately we have a great neighbor who is.  It's not licensed yet, still needs lights and things but I was able to drive it around the block on Christmas day!!  Anyway I'm getting to the dresser.  Our neighbor won't take money, he just likes to help, so we are always on the lookout for something to do for him.  He needed a load of trash taken to the dump so of course we volunteered.  This sad little piece was loaded on the trash trailor.  Poor thing.  I had to ask if I could keep it.   I think it was a taller dresser that had been cut in half or something.  I'm still not sure.  This is the kind of fixing I love!!  Trent helped put on some legs and trim up the bottom.  It's got some fun cracks in it giving it lot's of character.  Definately one of a kind!  And the moral of this story??? ...  Don't wear flip flops to the dump!!!

Something a little different.  I love this look with leather couches or iron decor.  It's a vintage basset buffet.  There is one shelf inside each door.  Solid wood :-)

Vintage Jewely Box

I've seen a few of these fun old jewelry boxes online, but I've never come accross one until today. I have been so excited ha ha, everyone's tired of me talking and telling them about it. I'm pretty sure this goes along with the "french provincial" style furniture.   Well, today just happens to be my daughter Emma's 12th birthday (no my name is not Emma :-)  so this now belongs to her.

Happy Easter!

Hope everyone has had an awesome spring !

 I love pinterest for holiday craft ideas.  I found an awesome easy center piece I just had to do. (The carrots in the vase)  These 2 things are the extent of my Easter decorations ha ha.  The jars with the lambs was an idea from a magazine, I forget which one though, I put them on velcro and have different ornaments for each holiday.  Notice they are empty...I've filled them twice in 2 days...the kids are enjoying it way to much.

I've just finished these awesome green doors with hooks for my bathroom, so sorry, they are not for sale :-)  The color is awesome!  I can't wait to hang them up.

Old Curio---sold

This is a very old cabinet.  I tried hard to make it shiny and elegant but it just wasn't working.  So sometimes you just have to go with the character of the piece, so that's what I did.  Now it is AWESOME!!  It's still elegant but in a different way :-)  I made it "chippy" which is basically scraping off the paint instead of sanding which gives it an older look.
