Here's the first little project to send my little cottage to the beach.
When we were at the little beach cottage a couple of weeks ago, there was the cutest little dresser in the master bedroom. (It was built into the wall, which I loved, but that just won't work at our house.)
Now. Was I a good blogger and take a picture of it? Of course not, so you'll just have to take my word for how adorable and beachy it was.
Here's what we started with…
And this is what we have now…
Simple. The little dresser at the REAL beach house was pine and had a different knob on each drawer. They were all in colors of blue, green, and yellow. This is an end table in our living room/family room that started off as a nightstand in our bedroom but I'm of the "Anti-Matching Nightstand School" (yeah, there's night school for it and everything - I'll show you my diploma some day).
Wanna' know what we keep in there?
We keep our DVDs in there! Please note the slight addiction Worker Bee has for The Simpsons. (And he converted Baby Bee too!)
So Step 1 is complete. Yeah, I know. Too easy. But, hey. It's a start, right? Weather is supposed to cool down a bit later this week so maybe…finally…..I'll get some painting done! But no promises.
Oh and here's a tiny bit of Step 2 too.
Found the perfect fabric for welting on our white denim slipcovered wing chairs in the "library."
Currently they have a mustard/barn red gingham check for the welting, but we're replacing that with this…
Isn't it gorgeous? And only $8 a yard for decorator fabric!
Well, Baby Bee has a friend buzzing over for the night, so I better get dinner ready….yeah…ha…..calling out for pizza! I know how to make those teenage girls happy!
