I have a few more road trip posts, but I am going to have to wait until the weather clears a little to share some of my other finds. Soooo, today I am going to show you a little project that I finally got finished a few months ago. This is an old wardrobe/dresser that was at my aunt and uncle's home. (a garage sale find) My uncle decided he was tired of all the junk and started (hold your breath here)burning a lot of stuff. By the time my aunt got to him he had already burned two of the drawers. There it sat in her storage minus 2 drawers and when I saw it I instantly thought it would be a great display piece for my junk treasure store. Mr. Brilliant fixed the part where the two drawers were so that I could put my little TV/DVD combo in there. Sounded like a good idea, but when I went to put the TV in the space wasn't big enough. Anywho..after a couple of cans of black spray paint and some fabric, here is the result. I also guess you can see it ended up at my shabby chic cottage. There is no closet in this room , so it turned out to be functional as well.
I painted these other pieces black also. The headboard came with the house and the side table was a $7 flea find. Funky artwork came from various places and the lamp was a $3 garage sale find, I painted the shade. I am not finished with this room but here is what it looked like before......
Yep it is the same room. BTW I am NEVER going to paint a room red again.(Sh!! don't tell Mr. Brilliant because I just HAD to HAVE this color.) This was the paint from u-know where. UGH. It did turn out nice, but was probably a little too dark for this room that only has this door leading to the deck. (no windows) I still lurve it. Enjoy the pics. Peace my friends! Linking up to a great party where people are sharing decorating ideas for boys bedrooms. Check it out:
