SEARS BONNET DRESSER - french provincial before and after

 


Do you have one of those popular
dressers made by Sears back in the
day? The brand was Bonnet and
they were so chic that all the girls and ladies had them in their rooms.
Here is how I gave mine a new look.

THE FARMHOUSE MERCANTILE CABINET - butcher paper graphic transfer





There are a lot of different transfer
methods available on-line but this
article I wrote is all about how I was
able to get the right sized words 
transferred onto raw wood. Keep

THE FARMHOUSE MERCANTILE CABINET - white washed finish



This cabinet was a donated piece
of furniture, but when dropped off
it was in a few parts. It had lived a 
good long life and the owner wanted
it to keep going, so I started rebuilding
her.

DRIFTWOOD GARDEN ARCH - walkway entrance gate



I have had this arch built from
driftwood since the days I used
to collect and build driftwood 
furniture. It seems like such a
long time ago yet it really was
just a different life ago.

DECORATING WITH SOLAR LIGHTS - garden chandelier



In my on going quest to decorate
the great outdoors I created a solar chandelier with inexpensive solar

The lights cost $1 each and I put 2 in
each of the three glass shades (total 6).

MUDROOM UPDATES & BOBBY-JO

I purchased a metal LOVE sign mounted on black weather wood and framed in ASCP Cream from
 my friend Bobby-Jo of Designs by Bobby Jo. Be sure to stop by her FB page as she is one original
 creator. The combination of the black and cream was amazing and I wanted to add this to my
mudroom. I also purchased a storage bin she finished in the same colors perfect for the mudroom
 too. My mudroom houses all my Etsy stock so I need lots of storage and I need it to be a nice place
to spend a lot of time. I woke up this morning with a plan. The bench in the mudroom that I built and
 love, needed to go. It looks great in there and got used when the nephews visited but I need
something different. I started to build a new piece first thing this morning and finished it this evening.
 It was painted in ASCP cream to match the theme and has the new storage bin sitting on top and the
 love sign reflecting in the mirror.
