A Little Added Whimsy

Hello and Happy Sunday {or Monday}
It is a crappy, rainy day here in upstate, NY, so it is a good day for painting!

My sewing room in coming along slowly but surely.  Have you ever been so inspired by something that you ran along and started something in about 1 minute because you HAD to?

Pamela over at Be Colorful showed a beautiful piece of furniture that she had made for her Traveling Door Sale.  We had a nice convo via comments about craftrooms being fun to decorate because they are all yours and you can be as creative & as girly as you like.  Well, after seeing her piece, I went right down and started adding some whimsy to my furniture.  I love the way it turned out!


I had already painted the insides of each drawer a different color, but I had different drawer liner (a heavy piece of wrapping paper) in them.  I switched them out, so here is what the insides of the drawers look like.
I am writing up a tutorial to teach you how to make stripes like this on furniture and will publish it soon.
Sorry for the bad picture, but this is a picture with all of the drawers open a bit.  The pink
one needs some touch-up on the edge, but I wasn't sure if I was going to change it to red or not.  Now I know I am not going to change it, so I will touch it up.  They are also out of order this picture, but you get the idea.


More of the blue drawer.

That turned out awesome. Good for you. And those colors are my very favorite combo in all the color world. Well done.

What a pretty dresser/cabinet! And how nice to have a room of your own.

If it's any consolation, it's dreary rainy here in Western PA.

Cheers.
