I took a little break when my husband came home from Deployment, of course!!    It's so wonderful to have him home!! Now I might put him to work in the garage for me since he has some leave time!!   Check out the before and after pics of these two custom pieces in my Project Gallery.     
                                                                               The Nitty Gritty

                                                    This is a custom painted cabinet for a little girls room.  
                                                    Paint:   Old faithful  Cotton Fluff by Behr for the body
                                                                    Aqua Rapids and Corn Stalk by Behr for the stripes
                                                      A little distressing with a 120 grit sand paper 
                                                      Poly coats by Varathane 
                                                      Knobs from Anthropologie ( Love this place!!)

Stay Tuned for more matching pieces to this nightstand!   Before pic in the Gallery.   This was an outdated piece, but with new hardware, a splash of color and a new stain color,  voila!! Much more modern and totally changes the style of a room.   

                                                                                            The Nitty Gritty

    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.
