I found this adorable old dresser at a yard sale....while we were out on our sunny-day bike ride on Saturday.....
Nice curves and casters....what more could you ask? :)
I've been itching to do a little project, and considering it's the Royal Wedding this week...
I figured I'd jump on the Union Jack bandwagon!
Just in a slightly untraditional "girly" way :)
It's hard to tell in the pictures since the lighting was really bad, but it's actually a very light coral pink, with grey and white stripes.
I wanted it to look a little rough and worn, so I hand-painted the white stripes after having taped off the grey ones (they just looked a little too perfect for my liking).
So here she sits in our front entrance...mostly because I simply have nowhere else to put her right now.
Once we finish our basement reno, I think I'll use her for my "craft/sewing" area.
But for now, she's housing shoes and bags and Hunter wellies :)
Love those little brass keyholes!
I added some new dark pewter style knobs, mostly because that's all I had on hand....but I actually kind of like them. Not perfect, but they'll do for now until something better comes along :)
And those are my fave little vintage silver flats under there. I found them basically brand new, for $3, and have worn them almost every day since. They just happen to go with everything!
Anyways....there she is.....a little piece of my British heritage! (I figure I qualify as being British...both my parents are British, and although I was born here, I could have just as easily have been born there....so weird.)
ps....two posts in one day???? what??? ;)
