Beauty 4 Ever

Someday, far from now, when our grandchildren are laboriously stripping layers of paint from the furniture they inherited from us, they will shake their heads and sigh and say, “Grandma, did you have to paint everything turquoise?”

Because trends will come and go, you see,  but this (free!) dresser set makeover by Ellie is sure to stand the test of time.  It would have looked as great 100 years ago as it looks today, and 100 years from now, unless we are all living on the moon by then.  *fingers crossed*  Check this labor of love on her blog Beauty 4 Ashes.

  1. BEAUTIFUL!

  2. I have wondered about that myself…here I am staining everything in dark, rich walnut, and wondering who ever though blonde wood was pretty…how long before dark is OUT and the orange wood is back IN?

  3. In love with this piece!

  4. Trends come and go so often! But for now, we do what we think is beautiful and both projects are just that! :-)

  5. perfect! i love it!

  6. I love the pieces with the classic lines that never go out of style. And now the white really freshens it up. I have mixed pieces in my home. Some painted, some not.

  7. I love that vanity! It cam out sooo beautiful.

  8. Someday, far from now, when our grandchildren are laboriously stripping layers of paint from the furniture they inherited from us, they will shake their heads and sigh and say, “Grandma, did you have to paint everything turquoise?”……..

    I was thinking of that same thing the other day. HA!!!

  9. Oooh, pretty! ‘Specially love the 2nd one. There is furniture similar to this in my parent’s basement…probably crying silent tears that nobody is painting them, too!

  10. Thanks for the feature, Lindsay!

  11. Beautiful work and fantastic blog.

  12. I love the combination of the stained tops with the rest painted. Lovely!

  13. I love the furniture, but love your wit even more! Seriously, I giggle EVERY time I visit your page. Thanks!

  14. Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Love it! SO pretty and you did such a meticulous job! You should be very pleased with yourself. Enjoy! And FREE? Sweet!

  15. Korrie, I’m the same way with dark wood stain.

    Except for this one piece that I’m painting… turquoise, and well, Lindsay, now I feel all bad about it. Dirty, even.

    But it’s only one piece! I swear!

  16. Oh how i love these two pieces they are so beautiful. Lindsey you make me laugh reading your posts, i agree about the turquoise, i try to stick with a calm color pallet, but i am not very brave. Thanks fot the laughs.
