French Poem Buffet

I love stencils.
I especially LOVE this French Poem one from Royal Design Studio.
I'd always wanted it.
I've just had my birthday in February and my husband asked me what I wanted for my BD.
 My first answer was *some nice old furniture*.....seriously!!
But I changed my mind
 (since furniture is something I often get anyways, I wanted something special)
so I told him that I wanted this stencil.
 I ordered it and about 4days later (yes, they do a quick shipping)
 I was holding this beautiful stencil in my hands and I absolutely loved it!!
Believe me, you'll see me use this stencil a lot from now on,lol
My project this time was this skateboard sporting buffet/sideboard.

I usually remember where I got it and how much I paid for it and so on
but not this one.... I know I bought it somewhere but I can't remember....
I just got a year older so that maybe explains,lol
Anyways, I was itching to try this pretty stencil.
So I painted this buffet in Coco and Old White.
Added a different stencil on the top drawers and here she is!!
I love this French poem, even though I don't understand everything.
Vanilla scented liners inside.
I hope you liked my buffet :)
Thank you for stopping by!!

Silver Box Inspired Dresser

I saw this pretty box at a local Winners a while ago.
(Who loves Winners? Me! Me!)
French and sparkly silver designs on it.
Love at first sight.....
 So I bought it and left it on the top of my dresser in our bedroom.
One day, I was in the bed thinking what kind of design I wanted to do for my next dresser project.
I looked around and saw the box.
It just catches my eye every time I look at it
so I said to myself "Let's do the dresser like this box!"
So I got to work.
Oh here's the picture of the box and the befores of the dresser.

Lovely, isn't it?
After my husband sanded it for me.
After the primer.
Then I painted it with bluish gray paint then added French themed designs on it.
I used silver liquid leaf to do the designs.
I spray painted the brand new knobs ( because I used the originals on another dresser) in silver.
Here's my silver box inspired dresser.
The silver is not as shiny as the ones on the box,
but I'm happy with how it turned out.




Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great weekend :)
