Tangled Up in Blue

Ok so I stole the title from another blog post, 'case ya noticed! For 2 reasons, I love that Bob Dylan tune and I can't seem to move away from blue.

Found this at the Habitat Restore. This poor little guy had hunks of veneer missing and a long strip of routered trim on the drawer was gonzo so he was el cheapo. Lucky me though, I have a BF who's a general contractor so he has some pretty amazing tools and skills. OK, let's keep it clean ladies. That was certainly not where I was going at all, ha!

See what I'm talkin' about? I used Quick Wood to build it back up and then sanded it down. My BF (who needs a proper blog name, BTW) created a piece of trim that matched perfectly.

And here is the before which I happily remembered to take.

Wouldn't a basket on the bottom be just perfect?


I'm selling this on my Etsy shop. Told ya I was going to start doing that...self promoting. We all need room for our new finds, now don't we?

What a pretty table. I love all of the details and I love the color that you chose. I would have trouble getting rid of something like that. I love to re-do furniture too. That's my problem...letting go of it. :)

It's just darling! It's probably already sold! I dunno . . . I might've had to keep that one!

Would love for you to drop by and link up to Passion for Paint this weekend.

You and your pretty painted furniture! :) I'm a little freaked out because I just bought something off CL and I'm going to have to paint it...and I don't do this very often.
So far I love the pink dresser and the blue-striped one (been reading your archives)
