Hello Everyone! I have been an awful blogger the last few months. School, work, internship, and well…pure laziness got in the way. However, I am so happy to show you all a new project I am working on now that the weather is sunny and perfect and I can drag this thing outside to work on it (after a winter of it being stuck in my parents front room gathering junk) My mother is so glad it will be gone soon :)
I have cleaned it up, taken it apart
I do know, I will be removing the top row of drawers and making that an open shelf for electronic stuff.
I also know the base will be peach…
I want to do something creative with the top and have several different options..SO FAR
Number 1) from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs
I am (im)patiently waiting for her to reveal the how-to. She and her husband created this from branches… Talk about hard work, but I am so in love with this. Sadly, I will probably not be able to do this because we are lacking proper tools and neither me or my boyfriend (helper) have the patience. I’m making it an option because a girl can dream…?!
Number 2) a stencil from royaldesignstudios.com
I will be making my own stencil though, or attempting too. If I do this option, I need help deciding which colors to use with the peach base color (For some reason, I am leaning towards lilac, gold, mint, or coral. HELP)
Number 3) from VintageRevivals
A much simpler herringbone pattern.. Still need help with colors..
Side note: I am also obsessed with the chandelier!
Please leave me comments with opinions, or anything! I am not 100% set on the herringbone, so any advice is welcome. Also, the paint stripper we have is awful and slow, so I would love suggestions on what you guys use!
