Hey there!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! The weather here in Michigan has been beautiful! I've loved being able to work outside again. But, in typical Michigan fashion, they are calling for 1-3 inches of snow tonight! Crazy!!!
I worked on my craft room redo a little bit over the weekend....and that reminds me....I have decided I am now going to call it my studio instead of my craft room. I really dislike the word craft for many reasons. The word makes me feel like I'm back in Kindergarten gluing popsicle sticks together. I think what I do, what all of us bloggers (and nonbloggers) do, is much more than crafting! We are artistic, creative, inspiring, and talented. Crafting is just not a strong enough word to describe what we do, therefore, I refuse to use it. Besides, studio sounds way more professional anyway. :)
Ok, enough about that! Let me show you the dresser I redid to use as storage in the room.
The nursery at the church I work at underwent a makeover a couple years ago. There was a dresser that was no longer needed, so I said I would take it. Like everything else in my house, it sat in my garage forever until I figured out what to do with it.
This is not a true before picture. I got a little ahead of myself and removed the drawer pulls, sanded it a bit, and filled some holes, but it'll do.
I just received some paint samples from General Finishes and used Lamp Black for this piece. I absolutely LOVE this paint!! The coverage is great and I love the subtle sheen that's left once it dries. I can't wait to work with it again. I've got a few more colors to try!
I chose some vintage looking glass drawer pulls from Hobby Lobby and moved it into place on the stamped triangle wall I completed last weekend. (Please ignore the missing baseboards!)
(Sorry about the picture quality. This room gets very little natural light and, of course, it was rainy and overcast when I needed to take pictures).
This dresser provides me with some much needed storage and I love it!!! I can't wait for you to see what else I have in store for this room!! I'll be plugging away at it for the next several weeks, so check back for more updates!
