Funshine & Ballet Slippers...

A while back I got a request from one
of my best friends to redo a dresser for her
baby girl's nursery, ummm pressure!!
I knew her nursery was going to be gorgeous
because her little momma is a great decorator,
& I wanted the piece of furniture I did to fit right in.
She requested a lemony yellow & I decided to add
another pop of color to make it a very unique piece
especially for her baby girl....


I love how this fun little dresser turned out
for Kirby's nursery. & here's a little 
after photo of the gallery wall as well...


Before:

After: 


I had this dresser in stock & when she asked me to
re-do a dresser for her.. I knew this was the one.
The dressers shape & legs makes it a fun & quirky piece..
It just needed a little love.


This dresser has the perfect amount of storage for 
a lucky little girl. All the drawers space is great
for organizing all of her little outfits.


That fun hardware & those cute legs you ask?
I was originally going to go with crystal hardware and yellow
legs, but this dresser needed another pop of color to 
make it a stunning piece of furniture. 


Another perfect thing about this dresser is the size.
It's a very petite size dresser which is perfect for
a nursery that has a lot of other furniture it it...
with plenty of room leftover to move around.


Rachael picked this beautiful color yellow. She wanted something
"lemony" & not to banana-y.. haha I love comparing paint
colors to fruit.. it makes colors so easy to explain.
This particular yellow I used on the dresser is Funshine by Valspar
It's the perfect yellow for a baby girls nursery...

Didn't Rachael do a beautiful job? 
& the dresser now has a beautiful home to 
live in.. it fits in perfectly.

I've had so much fun over the past few months
watching this beautiful nursery come together.
Rachael had a particular vision in mind & it has come
together to make one lovely nursery.

Too perfect for a little girl right? 
To see more pictures of this lovely little nursery go {here}.
It's so fun redoing pieces of furniture for people that I 
know & love because I get to see the piece in their homes &
I get to see them use and enjoy the furniture for years to come.


I hope all of you had a great holiday weekend!!
My Thanksgiving was absolutely amazing with my wonderful
family visiting from Michigan... We miss them so much already!
Like every time we see each other.. we ate too much.. laughed even more &
hugged as much as much as we possibly could...
I am so excited that we will be going home in a few weeks to MI for 
Christmas so I get to see them again soon.
Also my husband & my God baby was born this weekend!! 
She is in Michigan, so I can not wait to get home to meet her in person,
but for now Skype will have to do... I feel very blessed.
I hope you all feel blessed & happy after this holiday weekend as well...
Talk to you soon...
