Last week, I was thrilled to see this amazing post by Veronika of Girl and Closet. I became acquainted with Veronika through another wonderful blogger (who shall remain nameless right now, but will be partnering with gracie b. in the coming months) and I am beyond ecstatic to see how great she looks in the Lindy Top in Mint. I just love Veronika's easy style and that fedora... b-eau-ti-ful!
At any given point in time, it is possible to find at least a half dozen projects happening around my house or at gracie b. While working on my most recent project, I decided to take a few photos in hope of providing a little DIY inspiration. And, I have to say that this might be one of my most favorite projects to date.
What: Old wood buffet
Location: Found at Goodwill
Cost: $14 (tax included! YIPPEE!)
Target: Additional storage for "loft-like" master bedroom
|The Before Shot|
Before doing anything, I sanded the top down really well. I didn't worry to sand the whole thing because 1) it's takes too much time and I don't have the patience and 2) I planned to use several coats of primer as well as a high gloss, primer tinted paint.
This was after probably 2 coats of primer. While a pain, it is a necessity during this process.
|The most beautiful color red-orange in the whole, wide world!|
|The end result!|
To finish, I cleaned up the original hardware and put them back on the buffet. A few accessories later, and I have now have the perfect place to store additional craft supplies! I absolutely could not be happier with the end result!
Ps - I love to see DIY projects. Please email me if you have one you'd like to share with our readers!

Friends, I have fantastic news to share! As of last Friday, gracie b. has officially expanded into a larger space at The Hub. I cannot tell you how excited I am, and thankful, to finally have all of the new inventory settled into the shop. And, I have to say that I am very pleased with the result. If you are in the Topeka/Southeastern Kansas area, please stop by! If not, don't fret! All of the new clothing and accessories can be found on the website.
