The Homemade Roost is getting a Makeover

Before & After Recent little projects {Dresser, Bed, & Chair}

Little Projects— cuz’ well I don’t have space right now for the big projects and I know craigslist has been missing me– it calls to me everynight and I ignore it and go cry into my pillow– oh Colorado’s Craigslist how I miss you so– 🙂

Anyways so I am almost positive I took some more pictures of these projects but ya I may not have who knows I’m pretty sure I’ve lost all my brain now with my third– there is no retention abilities left

So the only before picture I have of my little newborn bed prop

It was well okay– a bit to much gold going on for me and I really wanted a more vintage looking bed so…….
The after– and I love it– If only it was a little bit bigger I’d go cuddle up with a good book on it 🙂
and the chair– I found at D.I. in Utah for $2 and I have absolutely no before pics— just use your imagination and picture GOLD– lots of gold—
I tried to get Brynley to be my model on it but alas she was sick of pictures–ya it happens sometimes.
And my last before and after is my favorite Dresser in the whole wide world– I named her Delila 🙂 She’s been done for along time now but for some reason I never took her picture– she’s my Craft dresser and holds all my ribbon and hairbow making stuff, and craft paint and ya lots of yummy fun stuff.
Before:  Once again a already into the project picture– I get a  little anxious to start– anyhow she was oil based white paint all over– and it was blotchy and dirty and yellowing so I stripped her {oh my}
The After:
I love her sides-
and the knobs– 🙂 I’ve loved glass knobs for a while and found these at hobby lobby and from than on she became my delila– my oh so petite girly dresser 🙂 come on I can’t be the only one who names her furniture right?

    I love your blog! Im curious though, do you give any details as to the process of refurnishing these pieces of furniture? I am embarking on a whole new house reno and would love some of your techniques and the names of products you use for the white and dark stained pieces.ReplyCancel

    I love you blog! However, I am wondering if you post details about how you refurnish the pieces? I really love the white stain and the darker stains you have used on several pieces. I would love to know how you did it and what products you used. Thanks!ReplyCancel
