houndstooth dresser and a wall

This dresser was featured on the cutting edge stencil blog and i THEN realized that i never posted it here!!!!


(the pictures don’t get bigger! one of those awesomesauce things that happened when i switched from blogger to wordpress)


this post started with a dresser makeover….the before…

i use my awesome purdy 6 in 1 tool to get the paint out of the crevice of the drawers…
and i used milk paint by rockler….
then i decided to spray paint the knobs with krylon nickel..
and i may have gotten a little out of hand….
a lamp..my curtain rod…love words and a frame….

but i reattached the knobs (i should mention that 4 days passed before i finally put them back on and 24 arguments about how my husband can’t get his socks) and taped off the edge…

and added my houndstooth stencil from cutting edge….

and used brown stencil paint from decorart (it’s glorisously thick and perfect for stencils!)

after it was dry –i taped off a little edge

and painted that in…

see…so nice..

but then i never took pictures of it..cause i hated the wall behind it. it was an off white color and i really wanted to add a pop of brown to it…
so it sat in my drafts for 4 months…

finally i decided to do something about it!!!!

i used dutch boys cocoa brown
this is after one coat..(no priming) it only took 2 coats all together which is pretty awesome! (cause i’m lazy)
i added this white vinyl W from ten 23
it comes in loads of colors too!
anyways…we love it..my  husband keeps saying he can’t believe how much paint makes a difference!

the other side of this wall is my husband’s tv..so i can’t keep that thing up top straight! everytime he turns on his surround sound it moves!!!!

see how pretty that krylon nickel is?

and in the evening….

thanks diy sponsors!!!! couldn’t have done it without you!
