My Dresser DIY Makeover: Good Riddance Pink Bows

August 15, 2011 in Beige, Bright, Chic, DIY, Flea Market Finds, Pastels, Pink

We bought a new camera a few weeks ago, so now I can finally share some of my DIY’s! First up: a dresser I bought at a goodwill store. This is what it looked like when I brought it home:

*

pink chest

Not so pretty. But it is solid wood and has a lovely classic shape and long legs, which I love.

*

I needed it to be a light color that didn’t stand out too much, so I chose one that had the same undertone as my walls. The detailsĀ  are wooden sticks that I picked out of a bamboo place mat (!). I started by drawing the pattern on the front and sides with a pencil, then glued each stick on with regular wood glue. Tape held the sticks in place until the glue way completely dry.

*

Using my fingers, I added spackle to smooth out the edges of the sticks.

*

When the spackle was completely dry, I sanded it down with fine grain sand paper.

*

The plan included another coat of paint, but for now I like the crude look of the plaster. The pulls I got for free at a flea market about to close, I screwed them off of another dresser. What do you think?

image via House to Home

This ultra feminine bedroom is based around a beautiful baby blue swan wallpaper. The same swan print, albeit in a different color scheme, is used on the upholstered screen. The decorator obviously knows a thing or two about mixing different patterns together. Notice how all the patterns in this bedroom are related in both theme and color.

To the right of the bed is a pretty vintage bench which is painted white and upholstered in Nina Campbell’s Orchard Blossom Fabric.

*

color palette blue gray green pink white

The color palette of this bedroom is all based on the pastel colors of the wallcovering. Both the wallpaper and the fabric come in other color schemes, below is an example of the more muted color version of the wallpaper, like the one used on the upholstered screen in the first image.

The fabric is Nina Campbell‘s Swan Lake carried by Osbourne and Little. What do you think? Could you see yourself using this wallpaper in your home? If you could, what room would it be? I’m going with yes and bedroom or dining room =)
