a   w i n n e r   a n d   a   r e v e a l


I am on a roll this week, three dressers done and it is only Wednesday! 
I finished this bow front dresser yesterday and I am not sure if I want to sell it! I really adore it and it would look great in my family room. But who knows, I might paint another piece next week and want to keep that one instead.

I sanded with my palm sander, primed with a stain blocker, sanded again with a fine grit sand paper, then added three coats of this kelley green paint. This paint was an oops paint that I bought years ago, I don't know the color of it, but I love it. Then I distressed the edges. I haven't sealed this piece yet because I am debating on whether to add a dark wax to really bring out the age and character of the piece. For my own home I don't have a whole lot of distressed and aged pieces so it might look nice to have something different. 



Now for the winner of the stencil giveaway! 
I had my kids pick a number  between 1 and 17 and that would be the winner of the givaway.

And the winner is Kat from Pretty in Pink and Green!

So Kat email me your stencil choice and your address. Congrats!

I hope you all have a wonderful day, so far this day has been great for me. I am totally in the holiday spirit and feel so blessed.
