Numbered Chest of Drawers

I picked up this chest of drawers at an estate sale in March.  It was being stored in the attic.  I brought it home and cleaned it up.  I painted it with my favorite off white color, distressed it and waxed it.  

 I cut stencils out of vinyl with my Sizzix Eclips.  I positioned them on the drawers and then painted a few coats of dark brown paint.  After it was dry I pulled off the stencils and lightly sanded the numbers.  I then waxed it.  I thought it turned out to be a sweet little chest.

This is a wreath that is also for sale in my booth.  It is a foam wreath wrapped in burlap. 

All the eggs I had were too large, so my daughter made these out of Sculpey.  We painted them and them splattered them with brown painted.  I found the burlap flowers at Hobby Lobby.  I couldn't wait to use them.  The wreath hangs by a chain.  Hope you are having a good week.

Aqua Buffet With Dark Top

I picked this piece up a few weeks ago.  I wasn't sure when I bought it if the top would be able to be refinished.  I first tried painting it, but the paint would scrap off when anything rubbed against it.  I decided to try and sand it down.  It ended up taking a lot more sanding than I bargained for, but after a couple coats of dark stain and some wax I felt like it was worth the effort.  

This is a shot of the inside.  It is all open storage except for a drawer.

This is a shot of the open drawer.  The top folds back from the center to give more room to serve food.  
This is a close-up of the lemonade box.  It includes 24 recycled bottles with freshly painted lids and paper straws.  The box was painted, stenciled with yellow paint and then outlined with a paint pen.  It would be perfect for a summer party!  Thanks for checking it out.
