Funny how you get attached!

We found this dresser a few weeks back and I knew it needed to be aqua! I blogged about it a week or so back and how it was a nightmare of a day. But in the end it turned out to be so beautiful. Last night it found it's forever home. It was so bitter sweet. It did not match my living room in anyway but I loved it. I have my eye on another dresser that I may paint the same color! And use in the future remodel of our kitchen as an island We will see. It's so funny how I have gotten attached to a few pieces. I am going to have to be super careful to not be seen on the next episode of Hoarders.

I love this little pie crust table. My mom keeps saying They were a "dime a dozen" when my parents got married. Well then for pete's sake why can't I come across another one? This table has been super comical. I had it listed on my favorite site Craigslist.
I had it listed a few days and in that time three people contacted me to buy it that I knew. I was not listed with the business name, so it was totally random. It was a piece that has had sooo much interest. I wish I could find a few more! So if any of you know a grandma or old Aunt that has one, let me know!

We have so many pieces coming up! I took in two new custom pieces last night. They are going in the same room with the aqua dresser. I will be posting them soon. I am just waiting on the go ahead for colors to get started!


  1. I love the transformation and especially the color!

  2. Love the color - especially on the little table! I'm thinking maybe my dining room table might get painted a similar color...

  3. Lynn the color was such an accident! I picked a quart up a while ago as a mistint! I have since had to have it color matched . I have to stop myself from painting everything that color!

  4. It is my favorite color too! After white! I can't believe you found it by accident! I look at the paint chips for hours never sure which color is the right one!

  5. I don't have a name or code but it is from Lowes and it was in a collection called Seaside retreat. The guy at the paint desk said it has been discontinued!! WHAT why would they do such a thing!!
