A dresser and a chest

Well another week has past and we still haven't found a place to move to... we have 26 days!!!!

But who is counting?

Excuse me as I go hyper ventilate.

On an update, I have decided that in order to keep my sanity I will not be painting any more furniture until we get settled into our new house.

I just can't handle the stress.

But no worries there are a few projects that I have done that have not been put on this blog yet.

I got a lot of questions about the colors I used from last weeks pop of color side tables.






The top was painted Lagoon but rustoleum and then the white is blossom white also by rustoleum.

Both pieces I will show you today were painted with the blossom white.


Today I have a dresser with a matching mirror and a chest to show you guys.






Here is the after!






This item is sold.

Now I have a chest. But it looks like a small dresser.


 See you can't tell that it is a chest on top with a drawer on the bottom.

Here is the after.






This item is for sale for $200!

Let me know if you are interested!


I am linking to these parties.

Best of luck in finding a place! Quick question - what color white did you use on the first piece and what color did you stain the top? I have a pine buffet that I am going to paint white and I want the stain the top dark brown - any suggestions for me?
