I have a fantastic HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY to share with you today! Let’s get started!
DecoArt has amazing products that I have come to know and enjoy over the past year as part of their DIY Artist Program. DecoArt paints glide on smoothly and adhere beautifully with zero prep required for a fantastic finish. They come in a myriad of colors and finishes that will allow your creativity to flow!
What better way to celebrate the end of the long, lazy summer days than with a HUGE Labor Day GIVEAWAY? It’s full of amazing goodies! These will get you motivated to begin that project you may have been putting off until the kids are back at school or the days are cooler!
(No international shipping – sorry to all who live outside the Continental US)
Thank you to everyone who participated. I can’t believe we had 776 entries! The winner will have a lot of fun with their new General Finishes Milk Paint and High Performance Sealer, the Annie Sloan sample pots and waxes from Catfish Studios and they will have a blast spending that $50 on the D.Lawless Hardware site!
The “Chest on Chest” as this type of dresser is known, started out like this:
It now has a new life in creamy white with beautiful cut glass hardware.
The new pulls fit into the existing holes perfectly. I decided to change the look of the two top smaller drawers by putting on a single glass knob. To do this, I took out my drill and created new holes in the center of the drawers, filled the old holes with wood filler, let it dry and sanded them back. To really cover the holes well, this needs to be done at least a few time (filler/sanding).
I spent the day today hunting for vintage finds. I took my main partner in crime (seen here about to enter minivan) and off we went. We had a great day!
A humongous old farmhouse table, a drum table, a sweet kid’s desk, a large chest of drawers and a small vanity with rope trim surround. My lucky day and the guy who helped us fit it all in the back of my minivan was pure genius!
I shared my new, large dresser on Monday. A very well built, albeit boring, chest of drawers. I had decided to drill new holes to replace the existing pulls with new, pretty knobs. Well, that is time consuming so I decided to shop around and see if I could find 3″ drawer pulls that will do the trick instead. Home Depot was a bust. They have great single knobs but are sorely lacking in drawer pulls. I then remembered that Cassie from Primitive and Proper redid her kitchen (swoon) and the drawer pulls were from D. Lawless Hardware.
