Small spaces

My biggest thought on small spaces would definitely be WALLS… use your walls… use hooks and shelves and storage and let go… as your letting go though hehe always remember to blend colors, use different heights and angles… and always step back and look at your work. But most of all trust your design skills and enjoy it xoxo

Painted dresser

Mums very old dresser getting a new outfit

Off to mums on a cold but bright Sunday afternoon. Mum has had this dresser from when I was young. My instructions was to turn it into an antique, shabby chic statement piece… Yay my favorite painting technique. So here we go. The dresser is in excellent condition and the sanding was easy.


After sanding I brushed it down and gave it a good wipe down with sugar soap and water.


I primed the surface with a waterbourne sealer and filled little dinges with filler, left it for 2hrs and gave a light sanding. Its winter here in Auckland and very damp and cold. Paint needs tempertures higher then 10degrees to cure so in she came into mums rumpus room.
