A few days ago I pinned this DIY silver leaf dresser (if you are going to pin it either go to my Pinterest pin or her website -- under the pic).
I'm in love with its bling. Seriously. But silver leafing a dresser is time consuming and I'm already in the middle of like, 5 projects and trying to work with a budget (new year's resolution) so I didn't want to spend more than $5 on it. Well, silver leaf was out so I stopped by Lowe's and bought some metallic silver spray paint so I could make Morgan's mid-century nightstand a
little lot different.
I sanded through four layers of paint. This nightstand belonged to my grandma, who then gave it to me at least 25 years ago. It's had a lot of wear.
I decided I wanted to do something to the drawers so I decoupaged lace along the edges.
Then I spray painted everything and put the hardware back on.
It's not silver leaf (maybe that will come another time), but it is the next best thing.
Linking up at the great Linky parties found at the bottom of the blog. They are where I find most of my inspiration! Check them out!
