First Stage, Dresser Makeover

My Shabby Chic bedroom is slowly coming along. The dresser got the first stage of its transformation. 

Before


After

This dresser has been sanded well, primed and painted a soft creamy yellow in a satin finish to prepare it for its next stage. The second stage will have the doors hand painted to go with my shabby chic design. The third stage is to age it and make it look old and vintage.


So stay tune, a new dresser will appear in a few weeks.

Wedding on a Budget

Hi everyone....

This post is very special. I got a call from my cousin asking me if I would help her with her parents surprise 43rd wedding party. After being married by the court for 43 years they decided to make it official by getting married through their church. I shared with her how a shabby chic decor in cream, tan and white is very pretty and modern. I used all my white and tan sheets and curtains to decorate the pavilion and we made all the decor together. We only had to order some white tablecloths and we  bought some tulle & babies breaths to complete the decor, everything else to decorate was taken out of my shabby chic bedroom. Everything came out great and I even did all the cooking for 100 guests. The wedding expenses was about $500 dollars....good job for doing the food and the decor on a strict budget. 










These tables were full of homemade baked good.

Master Bedroom Is Slowly Getting a Change

 Due to the fact that my bedroom is not very big in size, I did some rearranging of furniture to make the room look larger.
This large 7ft dresser was put in the living room and on that wall I put my bed.

Before


After moving the bed to the other wall and the dresser was moved to the living room...the bedroom is still a work in progress.



On the right side is my makeup table.


On the left I put a smaller dresser with jewelry and under clothes. I am now on the hunt for 4 old shutters or an old door to use as a headboard for my bed.


I just love the soft amber yellows, taupe's and burgundy tones.



This wall is going to be changed



This black dresser is going to be painted another color...I will post photos of what I plan to do to it.


My makeup corner is not arranged yet but it will be done by next week.
