If I could, I would write a song called “The Power of Paint,” and it would be set to the tune of “The Power of Love” (by Huey Lewis, NOT Celine Dion, as if one of those is less dorky than the other), and I would sing it with fervor every time I saw a fabulous makeover, which would be everyday.

Look, here’s one now! From Linda from Burlap and Blue. The little teardrop shaped pulls are most appropriate, because it nearly makes me weep with its beauty. Hmm, maybe I should reconsider Celine.

    I LOVE the teardrop hardware… Great choice! And great print above the dresser… Red/aqua was my wedding color scheme 🙂

    Beautiful transformation! I love the gold and turquoise drawer pulls. A very unique and charming detail.

    That is just so perfect!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks now, and have gathered so much inspiration for the old furniture I’ve accumulated over the years.

    Brilliant blog!

    Even though I kinda prefer the old wood look of before, I love me some huey Lewis. So: A+ 😉

    No, no…it has to be “Power of Love” by Deeee Lite (better known for “Groove is in the Heart”). It has a better beat for shaking your paint can!

    Great, now I’m going to be thinking about Back to the Future for the rest of the day. Thanks. 😛

    Love the makeover!
