my "TIF" Dresser

I’m calling this master piece the “tif dresser” ta dah!!! Here’s the after
tiff dresser bna

Do you remember this curbside rescue that my teenager brought home for me…. Sept 13th??
she was totally sucking up for being late for her curfew & it totally worked shhh don’t tell her  luckily she doesn’t read my blog ;-(

And do remember how crazy my “Crafty/Project/Guest” room was looking with it and everything else inside??

Well I got started on this piece & this was the sneak peek I showed you on instagram

once I was this far with it I already knew this baby was staying with me and heading to my closet II

Well this baby is now done…

a quick spray of Krylon Silver for the knobs

And I’m calling her Tif{can you guess what it’s short for} due to her pretty color which was actually an at home mix
I told you about it last week when I unveiled my lil Jack not so Union end table for j’s room

My mixed paints version of Tiffany blue
Behr teal (1/4 can) +Behr Disney Bother free
so I mixed these two together and got what I think is a pretty version of Tiffany blue (shhh don’t tell them)


I used a wallpaper I had purchased back when redoing my bar that did not make it to the bar but luckily now came in quite handy don’t you think??

do you love it? as much as I do?? wouldn’t you keep it and rearrange your whole closet to make it fit lol I totally did…

    Hi! I’m visiting from Shabby Creek Cottage. I’m wondering what the heck those sticks or blocks or whatever are underneath the dresser in your closet? What happened to those “feet”?
