This past Sunday I dropped of my chair for donation for the Chairs for Charity Event in Langley at the Passionate Home.  Here is the flyer with all the details.  Check it out!

If you are looking for a new chair, a night out and would like to help support the Langley Christmas Bureau  then you should come out to this event!  

Here is what my chair looked like before....

And this is the after:)

"VINTAGE" Dresser

Monday, October 8, 2012

I just finished setting up my very first window display this morning at https://www.facebook.com/brickandmortarliving!!! And in all the chaos of this week and getting various projects and pieces completed, I completely forgot to take some decent photos of this dresser before I stuck it in the window! lol.  So most of these photos are courtesy of Brick & Mortar Living:)

Definition reads "Vintage (vin-tij) adj 1. characterized by excellence, maturity & enduring appeal; classic

If you would like to take a closer look at it, then please visit the store!  This shop is fantastic:)  It's filled with everything from tons of local designers products, handmade items, unique home decor, vintage finds and one of a kind jewelry.  

I am thrilled to have this opportunity and love what this store is about.  Supporting others and their "crafts." 




Vintage highboy dresser measures 29" w x 18" d x 43" h.

The Shabby Chic'er

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

This piece was in some rough shape when I picked it up.  The hardware was covered in paint and unusable without some soaking, scrubbing and stripping.  A task I will take on another day:)

As I began to sand away the thick messy layer of paint, the dresser took on a new look, and the inspiration began once again.

I decided to work with the dresser and it's elements and aim for a more natural shabby chic look.

I sanded away the drippy paint on the drawer sides and added new hardware.  It was a small fortune for 20 dresser knobs but definitely worth it.  I love the final transformation!  What do you think?

This piece measures 34"h x 16" d x 51" w.

Farmhouse Sophistication

There is no question that these tables are fantastic.  They were before I even started with them.  (Sorry no before picture - I forgot!)  

They were a natural honey color which had a rustic farmhouse feel.  

The owner wanted them painted white and is going to use them as night tables in her master bedroom.  
The room has a sleek clean sophisticated feel to it. The only other piece of furniture in it, is a large matte black dresser with crystal knobs.  

We were unsure of what hardware to use but I remembered I had these lovely knobs I purchased months ago.  

Once I put them on, they seemed to be a perfect fit.
