The Beginning of a New Season…7
November 10, 2013 by Terry
Hello! Welcome to the beginning of a new journey… I hope you will come along as I explore the endless possibilities of repurposing the old to make something new!
For many years I have collected pieces of furniture from thrift stores etc. and brought them home and turned them into something pretty to decorate my own home. I have always been a lover of decorating but never had the funds to buy the beautiful pieces I would see in a store or catalog, so… I would buy junk, bring it home, and turn it into something beautiful for a fraction of what the store charged for it new! My husband would think I was crazy bringing home some of the things I did… Some were fondly known as “road kill” …. But later he could not believe the transformation! I will share some of those pieces with you as we go!
This dresser was in beautiful shape and didn’t need any repairs, just a little pretty so she got new hardware and fresh paint.
Thank you for stopping by I hope you will come again!!

That is awesome work. I wish you could do that stuff for me. I’ve got so much “junk” that needs some lovin’
Nice honey!!! Thanks for being my first follower and for all your support and help with my projects! I love you more! :0)
You’re welcome. I’m very proud of you
Very nice work. I like the details you included (stripes, stencil, cute little legs) because they really pop. What kind of paint did you use? And where did you get the stencil. This piece is lovely. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey
Thank you for the nice comment! I actually didn’t use a stencil, I just wrapped the piece in frog tape. I used white spray paint for the base coat and then brushed in the grey stripe after applying the tape…Just latex paint.
Thank you for stopping in to visit! Hope you come again :0)
sorry…I got the stencil at Michaels craft store! Forgot about the little design on the front! LOL!
Thanks for the info!
