Cindy’s Instincts

Cindy’s Instincts
Late start today. The kiddos have been … active. I spent half the day mopping up a tragic mess that involved a trashbag full of peanut shells and the contents of a 5 gallon water jug. Not awesome.
So now I present to you a divine dresser from Cindy at Cottage Instincts. If you were looking for a detailed presentation on how to lovingly distress/antique/vintage-ize your furniture, look no further. Her post is super informative and even includes videos on how to attain this one-of-a-kind look. Thanks Cindy!

    Before I became addicted to paint I would have looked at that dresser and said…”oh no not the Tiger Oak”, and then been heartbroken. Now I look at what she did and see a masterpiece!!!

    Thanks for the feature Lindsey 🙂 Believe it or not, after I sold this on craigslist the buyer emailed the next day to say she had already repainted it 🙁

    Ah well, glad I got some good pictures!
