I thought I would post a few of our favorite things we just finished.

This one is Shannons she finished last week. This has been such a popular size Dresser. I love all the cup handles she used.
This one is also Shannon's. She was very busy last week. I found this fabric she used on the vanity stool at JoAnn's Fabrics a couple of weeks ago. It has a grain sack look with stripes.
 I love it.
 It goes great with the Christmas Decor but it would be great anytime.

Don't you just love the sled painted red with JOY??

The Cottage White Bookcase we added the backsplash on top with a decorative applique & the Iron Corner Brackets, also the trim on the 3rd shelf.
It totally dressed it up.

This dresser has a mirror added to the top. I'm afraid you can't see it very well in this picture with all our decor on top. It also has little tin numbers in the middle of the drawers. I should have taken a close up picture.
I guess you'll have to come out to the shop to see them. lol.

I've been wanting to blog about this for awile. When I went in to retrieve my pictures, I had to go back to August. That's when I bought it, I didn't realize I had been so slowful. I finally got it done. I love how it turned out.

My husband matched the paint for the outside with all the little cubbies and drawers inside.
I didn't want to paint all those litte cubbies. And I like the yellow color.
 I just didn't like the dark stained outside.
 It was sooo dated.

I was hoping when I got this far I wouldn't have to paint all the window type sections.
I told myself it looked fine the way it was.

I kept looking at it and new it would bug me to leave it this way.
 I just wasn't sure I would just mess it up.
But I just kept touching it up when I would get the yellow on the white, and then the white on the yellow and so on and so on, back and forth.

I painted all the original knobs and handles White so they would stand out.
I love the French Provencial Handles.
All Done.

And Here is the Before!!
