Dresser restoring.

After reading A Shopaholic Mom blog post about an old dresser she painted black and put in her entry way I really just had to do this. She did an amazing job!

So I found a similar french provincial dresser on Craigslist and got to the long process of sanding, priming, painting, and more painting. Even a little more sanding, priming, and painting.
Now I feel like it was worth it but at the time I was vowing to never do this much work again. Just picking out handles that I love was a 2 week long process.

Master Bedroom Make Over

This is our bedroom (before). We changed out the chandelier when we moved in but we love the painted ceiling and the wall color. But now we want some wall molding done in this area.



We picked a pattern to try using 4ft long by 1.5 inch wide wood. It is in the molding area at Home Depot. We cut the wood into 7, 10, and 13 inch pieces.
Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.


In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
