I have been dying to experiment with color, but when it comes to my up-cycling projects I tend to play it on the safe side. With this dresser, I finally got out of my comfort zone and broke out some blue paint.
When I picked up this dresser for $5, I decided it was the perfect piece to experiment with and try something new. So I broke out the charcoal and gray chalk paints and the creative juices started flowing.
I love the farmhouse trend that seems to be everywhere at the moment (thanks HGTV). And of course there was no better time for me to jump on the farmhouse bandwagon, than with this great coffee table.
The minute I saw this dresser, I knew it was the perfect partner to the pedestal that I had already Up-Cycled for the guest room. With my newly acquired skills (okay a hope and a wish that i had learnt from the mistakes of my first go around) I'm so happy with the way this matching dresser turned out.
This was my first Up-Cycle project. Inspired by a beautiful little antique piece for our guest bedroom that we received from hubbies grandparents, my goal was to furnish the rest of the guest room with pieces of furniture that had as much character and history.
I love bargain hunting and I get sadly excited by a good thrift store find. These are some of the Up-Cycled projects that I have tackled and these blogs document me living out all my Pinterest board DIY inspirations. There will be tears, there will be kicking tins of paint in absolute frustration, but most importantly there will be ridiculous child-like excitement for the before & after reveals.
