The Stella Dresser - Before & After

This is a sweet little number we recently spotted and were drawn to the wonderful details from the sides to the base of the scalloped skirt. This piece is going into a little girl's bedroom and was not available for long! My first inclination was that it would work wonderfully to display a tv because of the opening for a dvr or dvd player. But with all of its feminine details and original hardware that keeps it oh so vintage it is perfect for a little girl. The details are hardly noticeable until it is cleaned up with a fresh coat of white paint and distressed to make the elements pop.

I am happy to announce that one upcoming project is another card catalog! We refinished one last winter and are so excited to get going on another. Although it is only Thursday I am still anxious for the weekend to begin! And a three day weekend at that which has means I may be able to get going on a few projects of my own around the house.

Have a wonderful day!
