This is why I haven't updated...

I happened to go to an estate sale a few weeks ago and saw this. I LOVED it. However, my heart spoke faster then my head. This has been my longest project EVER. I love it though. At first I was so upset when I started it. The thoughts going through my head were..."I am waisting my money, I reined it with BRIGHT orange paint, WHAT AM I THINKING????" Then a thought occurred to me...I need to distress and tone it down. So, I went to the store and bought some stain. I sanded it down and put stain on it and I LOVE IT!!! It is not quit done but here is where it is at.
BEFORE: (I almost forgot to take a shot so it has half primer)

IN BETWEEN: It is not quite finished yet:)


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the jewelry box! And the hutch is looking great. Will you come decorate my house when it finally gets done!

  2. Awesome! Where are you finding all of these pieces? I think I just don't have the eye to find a good piece of junk.

    The jewlery box is so pretty. I love the pitcher with the tulips!

  3. AWESOME!!! I LOVE that orange!!! What color is it? I totally want to copy you! I can't wait to get my furniture projects started...I've been waiting to get settled in a little better! I'm so glad you're back!
