From Amish to Amped

From Amish to Amped
Brittany was on the hunt for a ‘romantic’ girl’s dresser for her daughter’s room.  This $20 Craigslist find was more like a sturdy Amish person’s dresser: frill free.  Not that Amish people aren’t romantic. I know this to be true because I’ve been reading a lot of Amish romance literature lately.  (Seriously, it’s a real thing. And very chaste. The steamiest thing that ever happens is like, holding hands and blushing in the barn. Or a chaperoned buggy ride.)
But anyway!  Brittany wanted more from her dresser, so she painted it white and used an overhead projector and a cellophane bag (true!) to complete the hand-painted design.  It’s perfect! Check it out on her blog Interestosity.

    That dresser was definitely frill-free, but it made for a wonderful canvas for a lovely, romantic new paint job. Beautiful.
