On Tuesday, the last day of a particularly long school break for the kids, we made the trip to my favorite hairdressin' niece for a much needed hair cut. I love going to see Kaylin because not only am I obsessed with her hairdressing skillz, but love to talk about her house with her. You see, she has bought her first house and is in the process of decorating it. You should see her kids rooms. Oy! Adorable!
Anyway, we were talking about her bedroom and going over the look that she wanted in there. She bought a bedroom set years ago from Pier 1 for steal, but has since tired of the yellow color of the wood. That and the fact that her son drew treasure maps on the armoire and side table with magic marker. She's been toying with ideas about refinishing the furniture when she mentioned that she would love to have mirrored side tables but didn't want the fuss. That reminded me of this post from Jenny of Little Green Notebook. I love just about everything that she does and thought that this silver leaf dresser was a great idea.
So pretty right?
Not only that, Jenny recently used the same technique to mirror the glass on this cabinet. I can't wait to see the finished results.
It's got me thinking, thinking and thinking some more about how much I like it. How would I use it in my home? Side table, dresser, mirror, lamp, linen cabinet, bathroom cabinet?? How would you use it in yours?
So thank you darling Kaylin for making my locks lovely and taking away my grumpiness and giving the kids a big unfinished basement to run amuck in.
I love to craft. I have three young children and they like to demand. Together, we meet their needs, wants and just plain spoil day in and day out. But, late at night, after the kids are asleep, Mama slips downstairs and works on her never ending list of projects. And they make me happy and that my friends, is what I'm all about.
