Hand Painted Union Jack Dresser

this project was a fun one. let me tell ya, the mama of this bebe is one FASHIONABLE mama. as in looks so stinking cute when in the last month of pregnancy...impressive:) ashley, had the vision for a hand painted union jack dresser. i had the privilege of figuring out how to translate the design to this vintage dresser. it was a ton of fun. here is the final product:

here is a shot of the dresser in the nursery. this is a great visual for how to use a dresser as a changing table...works like a charm!!

A little house update

i can't believe it's been so long since i posted...where did march go? 
anyway, here is a little update in our, now, dining room. we enclosed our back patio and added this indoor space. i originally thought i'd use it as a little sitting area in my kitchen. then i realized no one was sitting there. then i put the dining table in there and put out munchies when people came over...and they sat there.
i wanted a subtle stripe pattern. the lighter gray is actually a champagne metallic color.
 the stripe colors are metallic champagne, darker gray(like in the herringbone room) and then the wall color, white.
 i also hung my floating shelves on the stripe wall. i really like the dimension they add. i made the mistake of hanging them way too close together in our old place. i decided to just hang two, and to give them lots of space to breathe between one another.
 i am glad i did...it will be much easier to style them this way.
i'll update you again, once i buy everything to style the shelves with. i have plans for large format photos in this space!
