Chest of Drawers Redo Reveal

Chest of drawers redo 003

I had painted this chest of drawers black a couple of years ago. I wish I had a picture of it in its original state. You wouldn't believe the difference! LOL

Chest of Drawers Make Over 003

Can I just say that I LOOOOOVE LOOOOOVE LOOOOOVE the way it turned out!!! It's just the way I wanted it!! YAY!!!

I used the exact same paints and stuff that I used for the Door to Headboard Upcycle.

When I painted the dresser black, I just painted right over the pulls. This time I took them off and painted them blue.

I also made 2 skirts for Skirting the Issue! :)

Skirting the Issue 2013 004

Deanna has been very adamant that I should make things for older girls. I made this skirt for a teen girl. She was very pleased. ;)

Skirting the Issue 2013 006

This is the other one I made. It's such a sweet print.

I am nearly out of donated fabric, which, if you think about it, it a WONDERFUL thing!! It means that the lives of so many children have been touched!!! YAY!!!!! Isn't that AWESOME??? Everyone that donated fabric has touched the lives of children all over the WORLD! Not just the US but South Africa, too!!! YAY for you!!!! :D

We are going to have company today!! YAY!! Some friends that we've had for 12 years (or so) are coming to visit with us for a few days! I can't wait to see them!! So, if I'm a little quieter than normal, you know why! LOL



  1. I love the dresser!! It'll look great with the headboard!

  2. The dresser is adorable.. I love the style of it and you did an excellent job , redoing it.

    When we aren't homeschooling I can find more time to do my little projects! LOL
    That reminds me, I need to start planning for the next school year! YILES!!!

  6. Enjoy your summer! I always enjoyed doing extra curricular projects with my kids, but can't imagine that I would have had the energy OR patience to home school them. Another amazing Stacy feat. You go girl.
