summer project

It would not be summer without a project for me to do. I found this apothecary tool box at a great yard sale, it was in need of a little touch up, you know me by now, I love things that are very primitive! I just had to sand some of the chipped paint and pick my favorite color (black) to change the color! I know it has some missing pieces but that is what makes it primitive. The paint went on pretty good and with a light sanding around the edges, it really came out nice! I really love it! Painting all those drawers was time consuming but results are truly rewarding. Check it out!

Take something old

I like to take something old and reuse it, like this old dresser that is pretty beat up but still has lots of charm and character. I just added some color and gave it a new life. So don't throw away those old pieces, reuse it and have some fun with it!
