THE ALICE DRESSER REVEAL - with a fix it tip and tool suggestion





I've used a lot of power drivers in my time but the
one I use now has been my favorite for years. I first
saw it in the hands of an electrician and immediately
asked about it. It is cordless and rechargeable and also
light weight with good power. As soon as could I went
out and bought one and a year later I bought a second
one. It came in quite handy for this dresser makeover.

TURNING A DESK INTO TWO BEDSIDE TABLES and painting them with annie sloan chalk paint



I found a solid wood desk on the roadside
the morning after we got home from a 2
week vacation. It was a wonderful WELCOME
HOME!!! I would never have found the desk
if we didn't have to go back to the airport the
retrieve our late luggage. While boarding our
plane back east we saw through the window
that our bags were not making it on our plane,
as panic strikes and we asked the flight attendant
what happens now.

THE ASPEN SIDEBOARD & APPLIQUES



I found an amazing sideboard before we left on holidays.
It was also amazingly expensive but I wanted to work
with it. It would be just like me to start a dozen projects
before going on vacation and that is exactly what I did.
So now that I'm back home I've been cleaning up all the
projects I started. Next on the list was to finish the 
ASPEN SIDEBOARD ....

MY SUITCASES & A CABINET REVEAL




SMALL SPACE TIP:

My mother has always used old suitcases to store all
sorts of things, and the smaller ones are very useful in
tight homes like mine. I don't have a lot of them myself
but I do use everyone I have. I store favorite magazines
in one and books in another. I have all the glitter and 
glue for Christmas projects in a third. All my packing
stuff for shipping is kept in a fourth one. I like using
them because I can easily grab the one I need and take
it to wherever I am working. When you stack them like 
I have done they work well as a side table and it looks
pretty cool too.
