lil' bistro set make over

Howdy! Welcome back to my bella nest where I'm always creating and painting something! 
These little chairs were a gift my mother in love about 15 years ago. For years, she'd remind me, "not to throw those Pottery Barn chairs away!" Of course I had to paint them white after seeing them the light wood color they were for so many years, but last weekend, I got a wild hair (kinda like the ones you hope and pray don't grow on your chin....YIKES!) to paint these Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze.
 I had been on the lookout for a smaller bistro table to fit my small patio and low and behold a sweet lady (Jill G) ran across one and so graciously took the thing apart and sanded the rust and then just gave it to me!
 I couldn't decide on pink or green to go with the turquoise, but ended up with Krylon Pistachio.

It's just perfect to sit and enjoy this beautiful, new season of life. 
Thank you for visiting! Please stop by again soon!



shabby dresser turned chic console

Hello! Hello! Happy first day of Fall!  Today's post is one that is   L    o     n    g  overdue! I redid this silver & black dresser a few years ago and have had a lot of people comment on it when they come over for a visit. They want to know the process of the redo, so here goes...
after much sanding and priming and painting white...
We sawed off the very 80's looking handles and painted the drawers a taupe color. 
Then I made my own shade of blue and once I sanded lightly, the taupe and white came through. I then painted some new hardware, removed the castors (I loved them, but I needed a little more height) and added some legs I painted.
