Repurpose Your Old Furniture, Nightstand and Ferns!

Here is a before and after of a piece I recently painted for Catherine.  Her fiance' had grown up with this chest of drawers in his room and so it was sentimental but kind of outdated so they removed all the stickers and brought it to me to paint and distress in an antique white.  Catherine brought cute drawer pulls (the two pulls on top left drawer are on back order but will match ones on the right!) and now it has a fresh look! 

Here is a cute nightstand I put in booth at Greystone Antiques the other day! 

The Pelham High School Cheerleaders are having a fundraiser selling ferns for $15.00.  They are greenhouse grown and in 10 inch pots.  You can choose from 3 types of healthy, beautiful ferns delivered to your door!  Delivery date is May 8 just in time for Mother's Day.  If you are interested, please contact Susan Hurst at 876-4621 or  Please let her know by Wednesday, May 7!

  1. I just love the chest you put for sale, I really wish I lived in the US so I could buy it. Are the handles the ones from The Pottery Barn? I loved the chest you repurposed for your client I am sure they will definitely not part with it now. Thanks for sharing
