Something bold and bright.

So here's the waterfall piece I've been working on lately. I wanted to do something fun and bold on this one and the colors really make the dresser stand out ! I love turquoise on basically anything and had some grey paint laying around which I thought would go great together to make the black handles really pop. I've been finding some great waterfall style pieces lately and have really enjoyed working on them. They have more of a modern look but yet also look vintage.

I have a thing for owls :)

Okay, so I've been on an owl hunt recently and have been finding some great ones! My son loves owls so I've been on the hunt for some for his room as well. Just thought I'd share some of my great finds. It's amazing what a little paint can do to something, isn't ladies??!! :)

Raleigh craigslist potential finds

So today I wanted to do a post giving examples of potential furniture finds on Craigslist. I know you all know that you can find some really cool pieces at really great prices. But... if you don't shop on Craigslist, here is why you should!

 If I didn't have 4 pieces right now to work on, then I would definitely try to grab these up.

First up, is this antique waterfall style vanity - $65

 I love this one from European Paint Finishes. Perfect for a little girl's room.

And this antique sideboard below I found on Craigslist for $78

I love the two-toned grey and white in this one by Vintage Junky.

And this great chest of drawers for $40. I love the round legs.

And this one from Design Sponge is simply stunning.
