BOTB 7.8.12

July 8th, 2012

Hello all, it’s ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ weekend, yahoo!  Amanda and I team up every two weeks to bring you our favorite ideas we’ve spied around the blogosphere.  Wood seems to be the theme of the week, with several projects focused on stain.  Here are our picks for this round! 

I heard about the new “Classic Gray” at the Minwax booth at Haven so when Ana White  used it on this jewelry cabinet, I just fell in love with the possibilities.  Now you can recreate the popular graywash stain that’s all the rage in design, I can’t wait to use it too.

One of my son’s best friends is Jack, or Jackie as everyone calls him.  Jackie is a sweet, athletic, funny boy and we hang out with his family a lot.  Jackie’s mom asked me to refinish a dresser for him and I was inspired by a Pottery Barn Kids dresser to paint it a bold blue and add some brushed nickel pulls to mimic the look of the collection.
