What a Pleasure!

What a wonderful suprise!
Last week I was given the Liebster Award by Jill over at I Know The Plans I Have For You. This really made my day. I'm sure there are others out there like myself that wander away from their blog every once in a awhile...and to be aknowledged by another super talented person, is a great feeling!
The word Liebster is a german word meaning "favorite" and the award is designed to recognize and promote blogs that have less than 200 followers, aaaaaaaand there's 5 rules that go along with it:
1 Thank the person that gave it to you. Thanks a Buch Jill!
2 Link back to their blog
3 Put the award in your blog
4 Present the award to 3-5 blogs with less than 200 followers
5 Leave a comment to let those blogs know that you've recognized their awesomeness!
Here are a few blogs I am enjoying right now, and I feel deserve this award...Check em out and show some love!

A Rocking Redo

A friend of mine's great grandfather carved this rocking chair. A beautiful family heirloom.
Just needed a little pick me up, and a little"manning-up"
Here it is before with its early 90's muave-tastic fabric.
I wanted to finda fabric a bit more masculine.
After searching through all of the fabric choices at Joanns, I finally stumbled accross a perfect print.
A pin stripe lighter brown(tan) with a dark brown pin-stripe...made of suiting material. I loved it, and luckily my friend did too.
And easy transformation with a great statement!

So fresh and so Clean Clean Dresser

Its been awhile...But just finished a gorgeous piece.
A chest on chest dresser for a beautiful little girl named Jade!
I'm going to be working on a few pieces for her new room...Can't wait for it all to come together!
Here she is all done up
Clean and crisp. The inspiration was an ad for some perfume...white with silver accents.
Here she is before
I Picked up this dresser off of craiglist, in semi ok condition.
Primed then painted a crisp bright white.
Kept the original hardware, but gave a few coats of chrome spray paint...very cool look! I'm liking it!
