Did I ever show you around ?

This pictures were taken in my bedroom. I LOVE to transform vintage furniture. Of the pieces you see here, the red/orange dresser (my dad had a Dodge Dart in that colour when I was little) was the only piece that I worked on. I've been having trouble trying to figure out how to fix that little defect in the spot where the four drawers meet. Any suggestions ? Still not sure about those knobs. I chose those just because I needed them to match the gold in the legs. The old paint removal and sanding were a nightmare...but it was worth it. Right ?

The green chairs (I got two more...good finds are always in odd numbers) and the two night tables (opps ! There's a pair !!!!!!! I forgot !!!!!!!! hahahahaha) are exactly like I found them.

I'll soon post about my living room and dining areas with pictures included.

By the way, Today (or tomorrow ?),
July 27 is my Birthday !


See you soon!


  1. This is lovely! The colors you choose are beautiful! The wood floors are gorgeous with that paint color. I can't wait to see more.

    By the way - I gave you an award that was given to me - check out my blog for the details. :)

    Happy Birthday!

  2. I love the orange dresser and wouldn't change it a bit, defect and all. keep the pictures coming. I love peeking in other's abodes. Have a great day. Karin

  3. love your blog and your colors!

    i like the little "defect". i use these knobs, and as fearless as you seem to be, i bet you would paint them, because i would! (dupli-color automotive spray paint)

  4. Cool orange dresser! I wouldn't worry about the defect, either. Things like that just add character and history to pieces, in my opinion. The chairs and nightstands are great - we like the same styles!

    I am so sorry I missed your birthday!! :((
    I hope it was wonderful!
