Making It Hers

This before dresser is … a little creepy. Probably only to me, because when I look at it for too long, it kind of looks like an owl face, and have I ever told you that OWLS are TERRIFYING? The way they tilt their heads and look at your with their big weird eyes and blank faces, and then they can swivel their heads all the way around and that’s weird too, and I’m pretty sure owls want to kill all humans.

So what a relief to see this fantastic makeover from Shelbie at Making it Mine, because now I just see a fabulous dresser.

And check out her great desk redo too, I am IN LOVE with that chunky bottom. Um. Yeah. That sounded a little grosser than I intended. Click HERE for a closer look!

See what I mean? Chunkay!

    Both of those are amazing! The biggest change are the handles, it really makes those pieces.

    Great pieces, I so enjoy your blog. I bought the ebook about 2 weeks ago and it is fabulous. I have been painting my daughter’s old bedroom furniture following the instructions in the Altar’d book. I couldn’t have done such a nice job without the book.

    Can I have that desk? Maybe not. Well maybe I can find a good, solid desk, some paint, and hardware just like that instead? I want it.
