Distressing Tutorial

I’m so happy, happy, happy to {finally} have the distressing video posted on the blog!  I tried my best to talk less since I had several youtube comments that I talk too much in the other tutorials.  {sniff, sniff}  It’s OK though…I own it because my excessive talking is completely intentional.  My goal is to give you as much information as possible so that you don’t waste your time watching the video only to be like “what about this, when do I do that, she skipped that step…”.  I always find that extremely frustrating so I imagine many of you do as well.  So, with all of you readers in mind, I tried to find the balance between information and time.  I hope you find it helpful!

Chippy Striped Chest

Hi readers!  I’m super excited to show you the before and after of this chest.  I think it’s no secret that I’m a type-A girl who likes to have a plan before starting something new {or at least know which direction I’m heading}.  Some of my favorite projects have been those where I allowed the creativity to flow and let things evolve naturally {and it feels pretty darn good, so try it}.  This piece is the perfect example!

Big Boy Blue

One of my friends is expecting her second little one next month.  I’m currently working on the crib for the nursery but it’s not the only room receiving some new treatments.  She sent over this cabinet that she found at the flea market to refinish for her son’s big boy room.
