|Our dresser in its new location!|
Well not my window exactly. More like various locations around my room, where our new little (actually quite massive) dresser has found a home.
We've made or re-made a large number of our decor in here, so if you see something you'd like to know more specifically what we did to create it, let me know, and I'll try and post a more detailed how-to. Sorry I don't have more in the moment pictures. I find that when I start doing a project, I get super-duper engrossed and forget to take pictures while I'm doing it! So sorry for the ridiculous amounts of pictures here. I suppose I'm trying to make up for it!
|Remade: dresser, vintage mirror, jewelry box, white picture frame, white and blue storage boxes, vintage frames|
Handmade: orange plywood board, storybook mums
|We refinished those crates, and put them together to make a night stand. The mums on the wall are made from my least favorite text book of all time :)|
|My friend Carrian gave me this idea after I saw her do it to a lovely wreath in their house. I used crinckled white streamers and twisted them into little roses, and then glued them onto this old ugly frame. Prettier now! :)|
|I got these 4 boxes from Big Lots for $20 and then repainted them to match what I wanted for our room. I used spray paint for the white and gray and then used a kind of stencil I found for a buck, and sponged on the blue paint.|
|I was actually really quite pleased with how these turned out!|
|This old mirror was super Mc-Ugly when we bought it at a garage sale. A coat of spray paint, and a little distressing later, and I am in love!|
|I got this old encyclopedia from a sidewalk sale for $2 the jewelry box was a gift, but it got chipped, so I refinished it in a happy green color!|
|Like the dresser, we got these shutters from Habitat for Humanity home store, for $10 I wrapped the hanger in the same streamers used to make the frame, and hung dried flowers on hemp from it!|
|We love our little room! Almost makes us feel like real adults!!!|
