Thomasville Dresser Reveal


I am proud to reveal one of my most exciting projects to date.  This involved several more hours and labor than I had anticipated but I am in LOVE with the end result.  Once again, I wish I had a place for it in my home...

After much sanding, painting, painting again, staining, more sanding, glazing, wallpapering and more painting, here she is:

 Please forgive the background... this baby is WAY to big to move out of my garage for a photo shoot :)

I love the way the dark stain brought out the color variations in the natural wood.  The imperfections are what makes this piece so perfect!

Don't worry- those screws will be cut down by my sweets manana...

Legitimate Thomasville piece
Ooops...the  inside of the drawers haven't been cleaned out yet.  You'll forgive me, won't you? 

This is the lucky knob I found hiding behind the top drawer with a cute little gold clutch (no, there weren't any Benjamins in there as many of you may be wondering... I wish)

So there she is.  Let me quickly remind you what we began with:


I really believe that anything with the right amount of elbow grease and some serious TLC can be beautiful again.


If you are interested in purchasing this for your home, please email me:  LittleMissPennyWenny@gmail(dot)com for pricing.  I am also willing to deliver to your home for a fee. 


I will be posting the tutorial on how this look was achieved shortly.  Also, my sisters and momma and I had our quarterly Freezer Meal Night this past weekend and made lots of fabulous dishes to store in our freezers for quick meals at our fingertips.  I will be posting our recipes and pictures soon.  Stay tuned!


I'm linking up to The Shabby Chic Cottage this week.
