Finally, another piece for me! I have so many projects I want to work for my own home, it's just hard to find the time.    I had a vision in my head about how I wanted to hide my son's legos! I found the perfect piece on Craigslist at the perfect price. Solid mahogany and hepplewhite pulls, be still my heart!!!    I wasn't exactly sure what color I wanted to use but I did know I wanted to re stain the top of this beauty.  I found this opps paint by Olympic at Lowes, just love this color, reminds me of the beach, which is where I live. After all, I am a flip flop girl living in a flip flop world :) 
I just love playing mixologist!! I knew I wanted something bold and  blue, but not a true turquoise.  So I mixed about 3 different colors to get the Teal that I wanted.  I already knew a lot of distressing was going to take place which I totally LOVE!!! And a dark glaze to add to the aged look and give more dimension. This is a solid maple Ethan Allen dresser, but definitely from a different era so that meant ugly hardware needed to be done away with and changed. I toyed with silver a bit but black and the acrylic knobs mixed with black just seemed to bring out the glaze more and I love the color combo anyway.  Here she is!! What do you think?!


    Beauty on a Budget!  Former teacher turned furniture painter extraordinaire, who would have thought :) I live in sunny San Diego but more specifically on Coronado island, my fairytale home.  I love being a mom, wife, friend and entrepreneur.  Besides "Garage 36" I have been fortunate enough to own a business with Rodan + Fields Dermatologists. Helping people get the best skin of their lives and helping them grow their own business.  I really enjoy working from home on my terms and create my own lifestyle.
