Boy's Blue Dresser

My husband is always on the hunt for decent furniture for me to fix up:)
I am too of course, but sometimes I'd go for some really shabby (not in a good way!) piece he'd just say "Don't get it, it'd be too much work!"
(but I get it anyway!)

So when he told me he was getting a dresser for me,
I knew it'd be in decent shape.

...and it was!!
It was an all wood, good sized dresser with some scratches here and there
just needed some TLC.

I painted with my homemade chalk paint,
the blue is *Storm Chaser* from General Paint.

It was a simple dresser, I wanted to add something.
I have  this alphabet stencil from a dollar store (Dollarama),
 so I decided to stencil some words on it.
These days, dollar store has really nice craft supplies and
I'm very happy with this stencil.

Here's the finished product.

What do you think?

The drawers don't look like they are straight in theses pictures
but they are perfectly straight:)

I distressed the dresser a little.

I've got many projects going on right now and
felt like nothing will ever get finished...
but finally this one is done, yay!!

Coming up next is the blue personalized desk...
oh wait I still have to finish the chair to go with it.
So it'll be either the desk or silver vintage dresser
or French cane chair or rocking'll see, lol

Keep warm and stay healthy everyone!!

Sheet Music Night Stands

Hello friends!!
I hope you had a wonderful halloween last night.
Here in BC, unfortunately it rained but we managed to go out and got lots of candies:)

This is my son right before heading out for trick or treat.
He made the head himself but do you know what this is?
It's a robot from LMFAO but many people thought it was Sponge Bob!! lol

OK, back to furniture...Yesterday I finished these night stands.

We had 2 stands from a friend when he moved to Montreal a while ago.
I forgot to take a before picture....
The drawer front had a green panel insert, the rest was pretty much looked like this wood.
My son wanted to painted it black and he did it, but after the first coat,
he decided painting was not his thing,lol
( he painted the other one)
So it became my next project.

I painted in light blue and distressed a little.

 Added wall papers on the drawer front.

I like the little gold showing through on the handles :)

They are Palliser night tables and the sticker inside says 99.
So it was probably made in that year...

They are good quality night tables and in good condition but
the tops were not really smooth and had some ring marks.
I tried to sand it but they never disappered
so I decided to add some sheet music to cover it.
I love them because they give a piece whimsical feel :)

Here are the finished products:)

Sheet music was glued and sealed with Mod Podge. 

I think they turned out pretty good.

I'm almost done with a dresser so hopefully I can share that with you soon.


Have a wonderful weekend everyone:)
