Custom Closet for Walt Disney World Vacation

I love sewing! B's entire closet for our recent trip to WDW was custom designed and sewn by me. She glowed in her clothes telling each Princess and character, "My mommy made this for me!" Tears of joy welled in my eyes as she pranced proudly in her Princess clothes.  I can't wait to get behind the machine some more and spread the joy with other little ones that want to be a Princess for a day, or week- ehh, EVERYDAY! Check out B.Studio by Dawn Lynn Designs on FB for updates with upcoming dresses and clothes! Your little dd deserves some customized love too.

Dresser Do-over...

My childrens' rooms always look nicer than my own. We re-painted after baby blessing #4, but it stopped there.  I have had this dresser without handles for quite some time and I had had enough!  Over the Thanksgiving holiday while the children were busy watching a Christmas movie and the hubby was running errands, I ran for the paint brush... bye bye gray, knob less thing...

did I mention that I have 2 in similar despair... we use them for our night stands...

first drawers come out and each base gets a coat of creamy off white paint...

Then all the drawers get a golden caramel color...

That was all time allowed me... the plan is to glaze them... but handles and knobs went on so they don't sit there for another few months! we'll see.  Check out my master before... so far the before is still better than the after... just might take some time!

Ethan Allen Inspired Teal Painted Buffet- How to Get this glazed aged furniture look

Finally got a project completed. It has been a while.  Making the home look nice and decorating are hobbies of mine... but it was time to put the projects aside and spend some time with the children. They are growing up so fast.  A priority inventory was necessary and the Fall is the best time to play outside.  We celebrated a special occasion and it was the perfect opportunity to get this project off the ground.  It is so easy. I visited our Benjamin Moore paint store... showed them an Ethan Allen catalog and said, "How can I get this look?"
we couldn't be happier with the final product... 

Started off with this buffet... I got it from my neighbor for $25. He was cleaning out his garage. I love the lines of this piece.

carefully took the handles off, cleaned it and then came the paint.

We need some new color in our home, and I love this blue!

The most economical approach was a flat Ben Moore paint...  

took 2 coats... then let dry.

Next step was to paint on the stain and then rub it off...

When I rubbed some of the stain off with a wet wash cloth... it removed some paint, and created the look I was going for... which was this Ethan Allen piece.
