I bought this adorable flower frog a few weeks back and just had to get some flowers to show her off!

I found this piece at the second hand store, but I thought a fresh coat of paint might bring her to life.
I sanded, painted, and layered a nice heavy coat of dark stain on it...and it was dreadful!! I mean really, it looked worse then when I picked it up! So I thought I'll try to sand it down and start over. Holy cow, when I started sanding off the dark stain it started looking more distressed, more natural. It was awesome. I topped it off with a coat of furniture wax and 3 new drawer pulls and I love it! Not sure I can ever replicate the technique so it's truly one of a kind!
There were high hopes of a huge April sale, but mother nature would have none of that:( I guess that just means that I will have that many more awesome things ready for the next sale.
Stay tuned for exciting news in the next few days as I have hopes of a sale in the very near future!

I've been really bad at remembering to capture before pictures, but I did remember on this one. Be sure to scroll down and check out what this girl looked like just a few weeks ago.
I painted this dresser in a nice creamy white, hit a few spots to give it a nice light distressing and finished with grey stain and poly. The grey stain gives this piece a gently weathered patina. Complete with the original drawer pulls and wheels, this is a really nice solid and sassy dresser.
