California Girls
Leah was wanting to replace her IKEA Hemnes dresser with something that had a little more vintage appeal.  But guess what?  Those Hemnes dressers are actually pretty sturdy and mouse-poop free, which is not always a guarantee when dealing with antique furniture.  So she decided to stick with it and add a little pizazz instead with textured wallpaper and trim instead.  I double love it!  Check it out on her blog California Callahans.

And just in case you were lusting for more dark furniture with a vintage vibe from a California girl, check out Summer’s sewing desk. She battled raging winds, the likes of which California had never seen – just to complete this project. Patio furniture was flying around her, but she persevered! I love the pulls; I’m so glad she didn’t replace them, or lose them in the wind!  See more on her blog Shades of Summer.

    Lindsey, Thank you for these inspirations! Hemnes dresser has got a great new design!
    I also have Hemnes in my bedroom. When we bought it I always knew that it will be the piece that we will make to change its looks. YOur featured Hemnes is a great example – thank you! 🙂
