Vintage Dresser Delight

Today I wanted to show you a re-vamped dresser. Again, it was another
steel - a whooping twenty-five dollars!
It was originally dark brown shellac
with plastic pulls.
I stripped, primed and painted it white,
cut out wallpaper remnants and applied,
added pewter hardward, and voila!

A reinvented dresser!
It is solid wood and fine quality,
but definitely better looking than it once was.
Oh, when will I learn to take 'before' shots?
I almost forgot to mention ...
I added the antique rack to the back with a few screws - it gives
the dresser an antique look, don't you think?
I love the plate hanging above it. It was
given to me by my mother, Anne, and it once belonged to
her grandmother.
Have a wonderful day!

Everyone has things in their home that
make it feel like 'them.'
Throughout my home, I have many little things that
comfort me as soon as I see them.
This chandelier is one of them. I fell in love with
it the moment I saw it. In fact, I built an
entire dining room around it!
I liked it so much, I purchased her little sister
for my kitchen nook!

This is another favorite item. My husband gave me this
as a Christmas gift about twelve years ago,
and I adore it.

It is handpainted, and I love it as much now as I did when
I saw it sitting under our Christmas tree.

These are a few of my favorite things - what are yours?
