Aww, this one makes me a little sniffly! It's pulling at my heart-strings! Julia purchased this dresser from a family that was reluctant to see it go. It had belonged to a beloved grandmother and Julia could tell they were apprehensive about the fact that all that history might get painted right over.
But she had planned to stain it anyway, and managed to make it current and classic with an ombre treatment. Super cool! She says, "I sent the family I bought it from a picture of it's updated look. They loved it and felt like their grandmother would have loved it too. I think that makes me the happiest; knowing that I was able to keep some of the integrity of the piece and the owner it originally came from. :)"
Doesn't that make you a little sniffly too? No? Well maybe I'm just hormonal and need some chocolate. Check out lots more from Julia on her blog 551 East.
