My favourite find and creation is this, my $5.00 dresser
It was a garage sale find, it was spray painted "make it stone" beige and it was too much of a sanding job for me. I painted the structure creamy white (Benjamin Moore Cloud White - cc40) and then got so impatient to finish I wallpapered the drawers;
This is an anaglypta wallpaper, I think Debbie Travis at Canadian tire has some in stock. I love the dreamy effect it gives and it sped up the transformation for me too!! I went to ebay and found the crystal drawer pulls but they can be found at Lee Valley Hardware without the shipping cost.
This is at my previous house (which I loved). I love this dresser, it has always gone in the living room or dining room (this was Christmas 06)
This dressser will show up a lot as it is my all time favourite creation. It was luck, laziness and good supplies hanging around that made it end up looking like this. I want to thank Linda at http://paintedwhyte.blogspot.com/ who saw this dresser and encouraged me to start this blog.
Until next time, Patricia
