JUST for YOU my girl!

My girl Jenn has been waiting on me for MONTHS to transform a couple bedroom dressers for her. The wait however isn’t ALL my fault. Here’s the thing — Jenn simply can’t make up her mind. 😏

First she wanted the colour ‘Bee’s Knees’, then ‘Cheesecake’, then ‘Vanilla Frosting’, and most recently ‘Jitterbug’. I however can’t blame her for having struggled with making up her mind — with so many charming Country Chic Paint colours to choose from, how does one decide?!

I chose the colour ‘Jitterbug’ for one of my most recent transformations, and Jenn instantly fell in ❤ with it: “MUM! You have to do my dressers in Jitterbug! It’s definitely my new favourite!”

Of the 2 dressers that I’ll be transforming for her bedroom, I started with this french-style, low-boy dresser. It was handed down to Jenn years back (with mirror, and corner-piece), and ended-up in our garage a couple years ago — needless to say it was a “tad” dirty when I brought it into my loft to start working on it.

Bird poop, fly poop, cob webs and grime don’t however scare me. After a lil’ cleaning, some minor prep, and some exquisite Country Chic Paint products — this lovely low-boy is once again charming and JUST for MY girl! ❤

before-after

With much enjoyment, my late-night hours over the past couple weeks went like this:

  • Removed hardware
  • Gave ‘her’ a darn good cleaning
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Jitterbug’
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘Tough Coat‘ ~ for some top-notch protection
  • Applied 1 more coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Jitterbug’
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘Hemp Oil‘ ~ for a lovely sheen
  • Installed new hardware
  • Lined drawers with a charming adhesive ~ for a final sweet touch

And here it is, a dresser JUST for MY girl! Maybe not perfect to some, however sweetly imperfect to me — just like life, furniture doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. ❤

Next up for my girl from me — finish up the mirror that goes with this dresser, a tallboy dresser transformation to match, freshly painted walls and trim, a much needed new door with frame, and perhaps a few new decor items for the final fresh touch. However please be patient with me Jenn— I promise I’ll get it all done for you eventually. 😉 xo

I hope you visit again! My #farmlifebestlife awaits more simple living, generous loving and constant learning — graced with an abundance of country chic character and sweet imperfections, both for me and for YOU! ❤

    1. Awe geez thank you so much Jessica! To be honest… I prefer a distressed look.. however my girl wanted a polished look for her dressers… so that is what I did. I thought I would hate it… but I’m actually rather pleased with the result… and my girl is very happy with it, and that was the goal — mission accomplished! 🙂
