DIY Sister Entry #2

So my sister is totally getting ahead of me with the DIY projects πŸ™‚ I figure she has two large advantages:

1. She has access to my mom’s attic- endless supply of potential and fun to hack furniture.

2. She is not pregnant πŸ˜› (lol, seriously my motivation at this time is trying to get all the laundry done before the baby enters our lives).

This is her lastest project that I am trying to attempt her to give to me as a gift! She found an old night table in the attic, removed the drawers, sanded it for hours, and then primed it. She was debating what color to paint it, and finally decided on a colder white with very light blue undertones. She then put the original handles back on the dresser.

Almost finished!
Almost finished!


Still not 100% satisfied with her project, she spray painted the handles a brassy gold color! The result is awesome! Dresser still looks vintage but with a nice modern and clean vibe.

Now I just need to persuade her to ship it to me! πŸ™‚


DIY Sister

To celebrate my baby sister’s Birthday, I decided to dedicate a post just to her! She has also caught the DIY/Pinterest bug, but is too shy to share some of her handiwork, which is why it is great that she has got a big sister to do it for her πŸ˜‰

The original chair she found at Goodwill for under $10, she then stripped the old fabric off, cleaned the chair, and using a staple gun and numerous attempts at folding, (while distracting her dog, Nahli who for unknown reasons has an obsession with this chair) fixed the new fabric to it. In one day a complete chair renovation! Pretty impressive! I will add more of her DIY work as it comes in!
