Disclaimer. This post is really my “to do” list. It will help me to stay on track and will offer you a tiny glimpse into my teeny tiny mind. I have
four five projects that are hanging out waiting to go to homes. The projects are really bugging me because at this time of year my energy just about all goes to opening the school year and my creative side gets neglected.
Here are the five pieces I have planned, lined up and started:
The Mid Century Dresser– I will finish this week. Drawers are stripped and sanded, ready for stain and poly. Dresser needs to be sanded, primed, painted, and poly-ed.
The dresser is going to join the night stand and headboard I already have finished. My friend has been very patient.
This is my inspiration piece for the bedroom set.
Here is the night stand waiting for the dresser to join the party.
Beverage Station– we have the sewing machine out, the mechanism taken care of but we are struggling to find a sink that fits.
This one has been tricky. The machine has been removed, the hardware has been stabilized and we have a plan. It is going to be Happy Camper Green with oil rubbed bronze spray paint on the metal parts. This one needs lots of wood filler and outdoor poly to make it usable outside.
Sweet Little Girl Dresser– I got the hardware off, the dresser and drawers sanded. I am looking for two drawer pulls that match the original or we may have to re-think the pulls. It will be painted next weekend.
It is going to be Behr Gray Area with a whitewash over it.
The Funky Dresser
Here is my inspiration dresser. I have had this picture in the back of my mind every time I look for furniture. I wanted a flat front smallish dresser to create something fun.
The inspiration dresser will work great for the funky dresser. I have rounded up a lot of random hardware for the dresser. The dresser will be stripped and finished to look like Restoration Hardware weathered finish. I am going to try being creative with one of the long drawers to make it appear to be two smaller drawers.
Another bench- yes, I have another bench to make. It is going to be different from the others. No photos of this one.
The final piece will be a hutch for the top of our sofa table so that I have a place to display my milk glass.
Here is the inspiration piece.
The hutch will sit on top of this buffet table and will look like one piece.
It is now sanded, holes are filled, and ready for priming. The twists will stay the wood color. The back is going to be one by four slats stained to match the wood on top of the buffet.
I am anxious to get started on the last two projects! They are going to be like dessert for me so I am motivated to finish the rest of the list.
I hope you have a wonderful week. I love to hear from you.

Can’t wait to see how all these projects turn out!! Karen
I can’t wait either.
Somehow I lost your blog ????!!! and I was a little slow to realize it, but I finally did! So I’m back to see you create the amazing things you create. Yay!
I am glad you found me again. Thank you for the kind words.
Good article! Thanks for sharing. This should be my next DIY projects. I have been constructing a home locker using the sheet metal I got from Bayview Metals from Ajax. It is now into its finishing stages, but some how that effort hasn’t been entirely satisfactory. fermentation cabinet from a refrigerator seems to be a perfect challenging project for me.
