Not too long ago Miss Mustard Seed featured a dresser re-do on her Furniture Feature Friday by Nicole from…
Here is Nicole’s lovely dresser…
Let me tell you…the minute I saw this I fell in love.
The combination of the blue walls, white dresser, white woodwork and wood floors just totally works. I also had a strange feeling when I opened Nicole’s blog…sort of like I had been there before but I knew I hadn’t. So I scrolled down to the bottom of her home page and sure enough I knew I wasn’t crazy.
We share the same blog designer, Marina from Penny Lane Designs.
That’s why I felt immediately at home.
So of course I pinned her picture onto my Home Decor ~ Foyers board. Shortly after that Debbie announced her next Copy Cat Challenge with a new twist…you can copy another blogger. Well…it was a no-brainer for me. I pretty much have this exact same set-up in my entry….I even have the blue walls.
My wall is much skinnier and of course my dresser isn’t white. I can’t paint it because it’s a family piece and my husband would probably strangle me.
My lamp is on the right instead of the left…and I didn’t have room for the wicker candle holder. I was also fresh out of cotton bolls so I used black-eyed susans.
I have a confession about the cotton bolls. I did search on Etsy and was actually going to buy some…but I couldn’t get what I wanted and I really didn’t have enough time for the whole shipping thing.
So I opted to be sensible and just used what I had…
but you gotta admit the cotton bolls would have been very cool.
I got the apothecary jar at TJ Maxx. I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw the little bird on the lid. A little bird with the tail up too…just like my logo.
The leaning picture is of a church on Mackinac Island.
I am working on an updated Home Tour so I snapped some pics of the rest of my entry.
I’m getting so used to seeing the stairway wall empty that I just may leave it like that for a while longer. My picture gallery is at the moment sitting in a spare bedroom on the floor. A project for another day.
Here’s a before and after…just so you can see that really anything is possible with a little elbow grease, some paint and some inspiration.
Oh…a big thank you to Nicole for sharing her entry!
