Vintage Nightstand

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Some of you may remember this "Vintage" dresser I completed and was on display last fall at 
Brick and Mortar Living in New Westminster.  

Well, it found a home months ago in New Westminster and my customer asked me to help her find a nightstand. 

After weeks of searching at various thrift stores, I found one on craigslist and even more conveniently, the women who was selling it lived right in my area. 

It has been painted black, distressed and I finished it with the same drawer liner as the dresser. 

I think they will make a great pair:)

Good morning and good day!  Summer's end is quickly approaching and I spent most of last week finishing up some projects so I could try to relax a and savor these last 2 weeks of summer.  

We are heading out of town next week and I am so looking forward to this getaway!  Is it weird that one thing I'm looking forward to is going to the dump while on holidays to see what trash I can call my treasure?

Anyways, today I'm sharing with you two pieces that I refinished for a family member last week.  And perfectly fitting for Waste Not Wednesday, as these pieces have been revived and instead of letting them go to waste in a landfill or unwanted and sent to a donation center they have been given new life:)

There is many reasons why upcycling and refurbishing is a great idea.  This tall boy was purchased off Craigslist.  It longer served purpose for the previous owner but will now be used in it's new home.

And this little beauty was passed on through the family and was needing a little love and TLC.  Pieces like this have a history and it's often why people want to hang on to them.  

I was told this piece is near or around 100 years old.  And regardless of its years, its still standing strong and sturdy. 

It's when I'm finally done with a piece, that I realize how much I enjoy doing what I do.  
It's generally not while I'm sanding and obsessing over details:)

I'm hoping next week, my post will be from my dump treasures but I may be MIA, if I am unable to access my blog:(

Enjoy these last warm summer days!

Just finishing spraying furniture for 3 hours!!!!  Just ate lunch at 3pm, jumping in the shower to rinse the paint and dust off me, then I'm driving one daughter to work and picking up the other two from grandmas house.   

That's all for today.  I have no more time to waste:)

Oh The Places You will Go!

A customer of mine sent me this picture a while ago and I've been meaning to share it with you.  You may remember the nursery furniture I posted a few months ago.

Well it found a new home, and here it is:)

Thanks Hayley for sharing this picture with me!  

If you have a piece of furniture from me, I would love to see it in it's space, so please feel free to share!

I'm working on this project for my daughters bedroom.  This room is taking me forever to piece together!!  But, hopefully it will all be worth it once it's complete:)

I have painted out some of the frames white and am not sure if I'm going to keep the gold or not.  I'm hoping the gold will work with the pulls on her dressers.  

I'll update this post once the project is complete!
