ADDING LONG LEGS - white 2 drawer ascp chest

Somewhere along the way I lost interest in finishing

high for such a small piece. It then ended up in last

BEAUTIFUL WORKSHOP SINK - made from an old dresser

My friend owns a home decor store and she is also the local Annie Sloan Chalk Paint retailer.

This year my friend had the unique opportunity to make a BIG move and double her square footage and she jumped in with
both feet.

DRESSING UP SHELVING - tall white display shelf

Solid wood shelves are hard to find these days.
If I do find one I grab it no matter what it might
be missing because adding to a shelving unit is
a lot of fun for me.
