Look at Me!

Look at Me!
This redo comes from Chiara in Italy! Ciao lettori italiani! Se ti ha impressionato con la mia capacità di parlare in italiano? Non essere, devo tutto a google translator. Così li biasimo se questo non ha senso a tutti!

Anyway, it looks like some misguided sole had decided to “update” this antique dresser by adding on some cheapo white handles, the kind you might find on public bathroom stall. Not a good look, my friends.

Chiara figured if you’re going to do something, do it all the way baby! So she jazzed up the whole entire thing with silver leaf and accessorized with some hot pink frames. I love the funky silver surface contrasted with the dresser’s ladylike shape, but I’m still unsure about those handles …

And hey! Did you notice the old blog got a little freshening up? Nothing drastic, as I will probably have my leg header until I die (I love it so), but now I hope the layout is easier to read and navigate.

Click on over to see if you are subscribed in a reader! The fabulous Jayna Haws from Friend of a Friend is to thank for the new look. She does it all, buttons, backgrounds, blog overhauls, and she was so super nice and easy to work with too! Check her out here:

    I’m loving the new layout!! Plus, hello silver leaf! I would not have the patience for that. I’m way too much of a perfectionist too. It’d never be “just right”. Ha!

    Impressive dresser makeover, wow! So very Italian. Your new design looks great, isn’t it fun to make yourself over? (I really could use some blog spiffing myself.)

    thank you Lindsay! i’m not sure about the handles too… is so difficoult to find them in italy, with a modern accent, actually.
    it’s easy to find every kind in iron, or painted ceramic, not really appropriate for my dresser.
    Probably I will uptade the update in future, changing them….when I will find some “perfect” 😀
    ciao ciao!
