Honey, You Are Too Tall – A Dresser Makeover

Honey, You Are Too Tall – A Dresser Makeover

This is a story about a tall dresser that was too tall. And very ugly. And was beheaded…

Once upon a time, there were two laminate dressers.  A tall bulky one and a short, longer, bulky one.  Both of them were in need of some serious nip tuck and a heavy dose of permanent make up.  If they wanted to stay in our bedroom that is. One day, I braved myself and decided to try my hand in furniture makeover and in true queen of hearts fashion, I exclaimed “off with its head“!

And indeed, the tall dresser got a bit shorter but also got a pretty paint job and brass knobs that look like beautiful golden jewelry – which was totally by accident and you can do it too!

Florida inspired decor style boards by twoPlusCute

I was pitched with the idea to create a Florida inspired style board and as usual, I could not make just one.

How does a foreigner like me, goes about creating a style board for Florida – a place I have never visited? Well, with inspiration by hear-say, tv-shows-see, blogger friend’s home tours and a lot of imagination. For good measure I did some more research (read: I looked at really pretty interior photos).

Check out what I came up with. 😉

DIY accent wall with electrical tape by TwoPlusCute

 

This was THE easiest DIY, ever. And the fastest. And renter friendly. And super ultra cheap. Did I mention easy?

I told you how I painted the final living room – our accent wallhere. Well, even though I went a tone or two darker than the rest of the walls, it was simply, plain. Too plain.

Ain’t plain anymore and the best part is, I can change it anytime I want.

And it looks pretty good.
