Let's take a look at what'cha been working on, shall we?

First up is this cute little desk restyled by Anjalie:

Such a fun and bright colour, don't you think?!? Flamango is one of our temporary colours in the van Gogh Fossil paint line and I just LOVE it! I really, really want to paint my dining room chairs this colour but just haven't had the chance yet . . . honestly, what do I do with my time, lol!?!

Anjalie didn't just use a fun colour on the outside of this desk, she also painted out the drawers! The soft and pretty yellow 'Empathy' looks great with Flamango!

Here's a look at the desk before . . . 

Great job Anjalie! I love that you really went for it with colour - thanks for sharing! Now what colour are you going to paint the chair??

Next up this week is this awesome restyled VarageSale find:

But lets get real here - this isn't what the cabinet looked like when Kathie scooped it up for $50! With the help of her young daughter, some paint and a vision, these two restyled this cabinet into a work of art! 

I mean seriously guys, how cute is Emily - and such a great helper!

Here's a look at what this cabinet looked like before they got their hands on it:

I would say these ladies did an awesome job - can you believe that both of these restyles were first time projects?? That's right! First. Time. Projects.

Wow!

Aha moments! {spicing up a simple dresser}

This is the second post in a series called "Aha moments!"

We're going to take all the guess work out of restyling furniture, we're going to help you see the potential, we're going to show you what a little paint and TLC can do, we're going to help you have an 'aha' moment, we're going to . . . I think you get the idea, lol!

We start by showing you a piece of furniture that we have available in our studio inventory - and then we'll show you some similar pieces that have already been restyled to help get your creative juices flowing. 

How fun is that?

This week we are showcasing this simple dresser: 

A cute little 3 drawer dresser - with a finish that leaves much to be desired.

Now check out this 3 drawer dresser we found over on Design Sponge:

Super cute, right? I mean admittedly they are different styles, but I seriously love the combination of the stripes and the natural wood front drawers!!

Or what about this dresser with a funky geometric gold design on the front that we found over at Trend Hunter

Pretty cool, right? This would be easily done with some painters tape and the van Gogh Liquid metal paints

Speaking of painters tape - check out the dresser we found over at Howdy Honey looking all herringboned and gorgeous . . . again with some of the natural wood showing too. I'm loving it!

I think pretty much any dresser looks great in a teal or blue/green kinda colour and this next one is no exception! This is a simple little dresser we restyled here at the studio using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk paint.

I love the naturally worn look that milk paint gives. And new hardware always helps to 'up' the charm factor too!

Alright, so now that you've seen a few different ways to restyle this dresser - tell us which is your favourite??

Wasn't that fun?

If you were to restyle this dresser (or have us do it for you), which style would you go with?
