Dresser makeover.........

We’ve got a couple of projects going this summer! It’s been fun and we’re trying to get these things done by the time the kiddos go back to school. (Hopefully not just wishful thinking, LOL!)

We recently painted Ms. M’s room a pretty grey color (post coming soon with pics) and she decided to do a more “grown-up” look. We looked through different images online, and she really liked the fleur de lis! She also loves the damask look as well. I told her she was going for a French-country kind of feel for her room (of course, she looked at me kinda puzzled, but I’ve seen that look before) {Well, maybe she was just looking at me saying “Gees Mom, you’re crazy”, but I’d like to think the former, rather than the later!}

Anywho, she had a dresser that we had painted white about a year ago, and, of course, it’s gotten chipped a little, but that “chipped” look is so in right now (which is good, ‘cause I didn’t feel like repainting it anyway). We gave it a facelift with some of the leftover paint on the front of the drawers, then applied some fleur de lis in white vinyl (oh yeah baby, I LURVE my Silhouette!). This was my first project with vinyl, and I can see that I’ll be putting vinyl on anything that will stay still long enough **snicker**. Love, love, love!!!!! This is how it came out……..

We bought this dresser for $40.00, so with some leftover white paint and paint from her room re-do, we don't have too much $$$ in this and it's a great addition to her room! I love frugal decorating :) AND, we’re still not done! Ms. M. came up with a cute idea for the other two drawers, and we’ll let you see that one tomorrow! (I know, I’m such a teaser!)
