Rasberry Display

Sing it with me, “She wore a raaaaaaspberry beret! The kind you find in a second-hand store!” You know what else you can find in a second-hand store?  Old furniture that needs new life!  And come to think of it, I’ve never actually found a raspberry beret in a second-hand store.  I’ve never actually looked for one.  But I did find a gold sequined fanny-pack once, and I’m still mad at myself for not buying it.  I’ve been trying to bring fanny packs back for years now, but I’m having a hard time getting anyone onboard my train.  I don’t understand it. They’re so handy!  C’mon!  Get onboard this train.

Anyway, this train has kind of derailed, so lets get back on track with where I was going to begin with: raspberry makeovers!  Here comes one now from Christina Miller at Phoenix Restoration. Before, a veneer covered dresser of unspecialness.  Now?  Super special! And that color! Yum.

And speaking of unspecialness, Megan had herself a rug that was as exciting as a Wheat Thin.  So … not very exciting. It kind of looks like a giant Wheat Thin.  And everyone knows Wheat Thins are better with a little something sweet on top.  How about … raspberry! See her blog Rappsody in Rooms to find out how she did this with tape, paint, and patience.

    That rug made me say “wow” out loud! And YES to painting over ugly veneer. That is a lovely color and the handles look so perfect with it.

  2. Both beautiful, I love that color. I once lived in a very outdated, kind of yucky studio apartment, said “screw it!” and painted my kitchen the same color as that bureau. LOVED it! It surely helped distract from the brown shag carpeting…

  3. I love the dresser. I saw the potential, but the after made me go “wow”!

    Love those raspberries! I mean, those raspberry makeovers! That bureau looks so yummy, and that rug….I want!

  5. Those are fabulous makeovers!!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  6. Wow, Lindsey! Thanks so much for the feature. I knew something was up when my blog was actually getting traffic. 🙂 Oh, and I LOVE that rug…definitely following Rappsody in Rooms now. Thanks again.

  7. Love them both. I am hot on that color after just using it in my xraft room and a bit of it in my daughters room.

  8. Wow! The dresser is stunning in that color. The rug is now a TOP of the line Wheat Thin! Lovely. Both.


  9. That dresser went from blah to beautiful! Not sure I would have had the courage to choose that color but I like it. Also like that she used the original drawer pulls.

    I can’t believe that rug makeover–that took a lot of prep.

  10. TOTALLY loving the rug re-do!!!!!! How exciting!

  11. I LOOOOVEEE the raspberry colors! Great job on both the redos. My husband refused to let me paint our living room that shade of raspberry. So I was relegated to the trim in the patio. LOL! It looks gorgeous though. 🙂

  12. Lindsay O. says:

    Ditto what Kim from Milwaukee said – that dresser is downright YUMMY!

  13. Thank you for keeping the original brass hardware!!

  14. I don’t usually go for pinks, but that dresser and rug are spectacular! Love them both.

  15. Catherine says:

    That dresser is awesome! I didn’t think the hardware was going to look so great!

  16. That is a great transformation on the console. Wow. I may have to try to recreate the pattern on that rug.

    It isn’t at a second hand store, but how about a raspberry fanny pack? Bring it back…

  17. That has win written all over it! Ha! I love it!
