Fan-tastic Feature: Silver Leaf Dresser

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

Y’all know I’m a fan of a great before and after, and if it has a little sparkle going on, I’m smitten!  Reader Barbara sent over this dresser redo, and I simply can’t take my eyes off of this beauty.  Want to see how to turn a plain Jane wood IKEA dresser into a sophisticated piece for your boudoir?

Fan-tastic Fixture

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Hi all, how’s your week?  For me, it’s been interesting running up and down plywood steps on our staircase for the past few days.  We will slowly be installing new white risers and wood treads over the course of the next week.  It’s certainly a lot of precision cutting, and there’s plenty of sawdust in our house ~ more details coming soon. 

Meanwhile, I’d love to show off this fantastic light fixture revamp by Kristen at The Painted Hive.  Kristen shows some real ingenuity and a can-do attitude with her makeover.  She takes this unbelievably dated fixture (the same one I’ve spied at garage sales and in the brass bin at my local Restore)  . . .

Before:

and turns it into this unbelievably glamorous focal point. 

After:

Stunning!

Can you believe it ?  What a clever and beautiful makeover, I am in awe ! 

Hop on over to visit Kristen and read all about how she did it.   No doubt you’ll be inspired to update one of your brassy fixtures too. 

Have you got a fabulous makeover you’d love to see featured?  Drop me a line at [email protected] and I’m happy to consider it for the weekly lineup!
