This dresser was a love at first sight, even though it's exterior looked rather shabby. Apart from the less than perfect exterior, all its drawers were in perfect shape and I knew that a bit of work would make a world of difference. I have decided to keep original hardware on the side drawers and to paint them out the same colour as the dresser. Yellow knobs on the middle drawers are adding a colourful and playful punch to the piece. This dresser is now listed on my Etsy page.
Have a great day everyone.

Seemingly main stream and tame desk has a little secret - its colour blocked top is all the rage. Body of this desk has been painted Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue and the top features triangles in complementing but also contrasting colours.
It is currently available for Sale at Freedom Clothing Collective (939 Bloor Street West) in Toronto as well as on my Etsy page.

This is what the yard looks like at the moment, frost bitten hosta leaves have been trimmed down and all of a sudden the yard looks so much larger. BBQ, umbrella and patio chairs are now in the shed and will remain there until next year.

This hutch was in a fairly sad state when I first saw it. The veneer on the bottom set of doors was flaking and to the majority of people it did not give confidence that anything good could ever come out of it. I knew what needed to be done to turn this ugly duckling into a charming piece of furniture. You can see this piece in person at Freedom Clothing Collective at 939 Bloor Street West in Toronto. It is also listed in my Etsy store.

Here is a little something I have been experimenting with yesterday and to be honest, I am quite thrilled with the outcome. I started off with a pretty ordinary, but super sturdy, coffee table and turned it into a vintage meets modern piece of furniture.
Apologies for the photography quality and the lack of staging. I was just too thrilled a out it and had to share it as soon as possible.

|Before Shot - good bones and that's about it|
|Step 1 - measure carefully and tape off the triangles|
|First half painted out|
|Final colour pallet|
Some touch-ups are still needed to the top, but I am quite happy with the outcome.
It may take a few days before it is 100% finished and ready for its glam shot.
