Happy Monday! How was your weekend? The sun was out in Seattle and that meant a few nice walks and some much needed yard work. It was so nice to open the windows and have some fresh air come in. I also got on a spray paint kick and put out some Easter decorations. I’ll be sharing more later this week.
Saturday morning I was picking up my woman “cave” or to be more exact, the room I call my craft/reading/office/guest room. The room became this last September and was pretty much done on the buy little, by cheap and use what you got kind of room. I abide by this theory a lot because I know me. Lots of folks live in an undecorated area for a while to get the vibe of the room and to understand how to furnish, paint, etc. it. Me, I find I guess at what I want, try it for a while and then end up changing it after I live with it.
If you want to read about the initial redo of the room check Here. Since then, I have moved the furniture around, added shelves, changed the location of pictures, repainted a few things and on Saturday, gave the white dresser a new look. I have been wanting to paint the dresser, but I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to go. Back when I painted the fireplace wall black I first put up black scrapbook paper to see what it would look like. See what I mean that I need to live with it to feel it?
Okay, back to the white dresser. I took decorative duct tape and applied it to the front of the white dresser drawers.
I took the drawer handles off and applied the duct tape strip by strip. Then I poked the through the tape to open the whole and put the pulls back on. A 30 minute project. That’s it and I like it! Here’s a before and after.
and some more pictures…
Duct Tape…who would of thunk it?
