Taking the edge off.

I don’t know what is going on here.  It would appear that someone once spent about 45 seconds lining all the edges of this before dresser in gold spray paint and called ‘er done. Interesting technique. Perhaps they wanted to paint the entire dresser gold and ran out of time or paint (or motivation). Or maybe this look was … intentional.  *judgy eyebrow raise*

Who’s to know.  But I know I would have never invisioned it as a perfect piece for a little boy’s room, only that’s exactly what it became thanks to Elaine and her foresight.  So cute! Once again we learn never to judge a dresser by it’s badly painted cover.  See more at Visual Meringue.

Aye Aye Captain!

Friends, I am up to something secret today.  A little surprise that I’m working on.  It’s close to completion, and I can’t wait to share it with you!  In due time … in due time …  But, right now I have to dash out the door because today is the final day I have to work on it.

So I will leave you now with this amazing vintage boy nursery makeover from Adri at Dream Book Design. Luckily, the pictures speak for themselves.  (They say “WOWZA,” in case you were wondering).

What Bedroom Style Are YOU?

I don’t really have an answer to that question for you.  I just thought that title might grab your attention, much like all those ridiculous quizzes on Facebook.  They are getting out of control. What color is your aura?  What Seinfeld character are you? What ’80s movie are you?  What is your spirit animal? What criminal mastermind from are you? Which US state should you live in? Blah blah blah.  (So maybe I took the spirit animal quiz.  Ok, I did.  My spirit animal is a butterfly, which is totally lame.  I was hoping it would be like a wolverine or something a little cooler).

Anyway, let’s talk about what bedroom style you are.  Do you like rooms with baby blue walls, cheesy wallpaper borders and a high concentration of built-in shelves that seem to have been borrowed from a grocery store?  If so, this before bedroom is for you!  But if not, take a peek at what Meg did in here.  It is SOO much better.  Are those even the same built-ins?  If so, she did an amazing job of updating them. Way to go Meg!

Lego Storage and Dresser Restore-age

Do you have kids?  Do you know kids? Do you know someone who has or knows kids?  Then these makeovers are for YOU! Here are a couple of fun ideas for the kids in your life, (or the kids-at-heart) that are sure to make you smile, and might possibly even save the world.

Ok, this hopeless table-turned-Lego-storage-station might not ‘save the world,’ but it could potentially save your feet from stray Legos (which magically become razor-sharp in the dark), so close enough.

How many auto aficionados would love this sweet dresser? I know my boys would go nuts for it.  Better After reader Megan found it abandoned on the curb, and after painstakingly putting it back together, decided it needed more fun in the form of a VW theme!  (Do you also pronounce it Vee DAAUUUUUUUGHB whenever you say it, just like that guy in their commercials, you know, that one guy that was also on the show Prison Break and I think he had a fake hand, but the show got canceled, so he started doing VW commercials, I think mostly because he has a good German accent, and that’s how he always said it? No?  Just me then?  Carry on.)
