We have this ledge in the entrance balcony to our house that I like to decorate for different seasons/holidays and our normal farmhouse decor. I put together this arrangement after getting the HOME sign from a local home decor store because I had a gift card to use up. The other decorations are things that I already had but I think that they go nicely together.
We were given this dresser many years ago by a family member and it was a little dated almost a yellow color with gold hardware. I have always wanted to change it up and finally decided a couple weekends ago to go ahead and paint it. It ended up being way easier and looking nicer than I thought it would end up looking. I chose a satin white interior paint, and started to prep the dresser. First, I took all the hardware off so that I could spray paint them with an oil rubbed spray paint. Then, I took all the drawers out and placed them with the good side up. I placed a tarp under the dresser it self so that I wouldn’t get paint on my carpet.
I should have taken a before and after pic of this trunk, that each one of us used when we were little. It was wrapped in a unicorn design with rainbows and clouds. I wanted to refinish it to put in my daughters room when my mom had handed it down. At first, I thought I could just paint over the unicorn design but almost instantly realized that it was like contact paper so when I painted over it, it started to bubble and lift.
When we moved into this house, the kid’s bedrooms both had this cool board on one wall. I had so many ideas for what I could make these into, ex – chalkboards, white boards, corkboards. The kids that had been in this house before us were college-age, so the existing boards were covered in fabric that was floral and had seen better days.
