A Peek From My Porch

I have told you before how much I love painted furniture.  A couple years ago I painted my dresser.  It went from this
Failed to snap a picture with the drawers still inside!
to this...

I've been looking for a neat stencil to put on the plain drawers and couldn't find anything I loved...until last week!  I was at Target and was scouring through the end of the aisle sales when I found a vinyl lettering marked down to under $4!!!!!!!!!!  It was a perfect size and I felt sure it would look great on my dresser.  It took me less than 30 minutes to get it aligned and in place on the drawer.  Here is the result:

I have a couple of glass knobs for the top drawers, but my father-in-law, who built the dresser (impressive, huh?) screwed and glued the wooden ones in place and they're not budging!  Maybe one day I'll get them off!  Anyway, I love the transformation.  Just goes to show you that  for a very little bit of money and some loving touches, you can create something you really love!

Thanks for taking a peek from my porch into my dresser makeover!  What piece of furniture are you thinking about redoing?

From my country porch,

Denise, I love what done to the dresser. My bedroom suit is all dark wood and I LOVE the white. Especially the weathered look.
I.m in a hotel room that has light chocolate brown walls, dark furniture and white linens. It's is so relaxing and comfortable.
My bedroom has light walls, dark furniture and dark linens. There needs to be a change.
Have a month of renewed thinking ahead.
Love you~ Debby
