French Gray...

Do you ever have those times
where you have a million projects in your 
head that you want to start,
so your mind goes a thousand miles a minute
thinking about these projects & which one you will start first?
I have a problem.
I have a growing list of projects for around my house
& not enough time in a day to do them all.
From remodeling the laundry room 
to making all my black furniture white.
Things are getting crazy
in the Galvan household. 
Stay tuned for all these changes.
That is, If I don't go insane before they all happen. 
I wish I could snap my fingers & have it all be the way I want it,
but that would be no fun... or would it??
hmmmm...


Here is an antique dresser I revamped a few weeks ago.
I had this dresser a few months now,
& finally got around to making it beautiful...



Before:


As you can see this dresser needed a little TLC & some 
updating...


I chose a french gray color to simplify 
& make the piece clean and crisp


This dresser will be for sale in my shop.
If I had a baby,
it would not be for sale, it would be in a nursery.
I fell in love with the shape & the cute
little legs.


This weekend was filled with DIY 
projects to makeover our living room furniture.
More on that later...
I got a screw in my foot today.
that was not the highlight of my Sunday,
but it was a first for me.
O, also I am featured over
Pretty sweet huh?
Go check out the post!

  3. Such a beautiful fresh color! I see these kinds of dressers on Craigslist all the time, I might have to get myself one! And I know exactly what you mean about having a million projects. I have to remind myself to walk before I run or else, I'll be creating projects faster than I can accomplish them :) Hope you had a lovely weekend!

  6. I am feeling the same way, especially since I started a blog to help motivate me to get things done. So far it has motivated me, but I am also starting a few too many things at once. :)

    Love that dresser! I adore legs on furniture! Legs on dressers and bookcases really get me.

  19. Liz, congratulations on getting another project checked off of the never ending list. The dresser looks wonderful. I like the simplicity of it not too flashy.
