Friday Finds

My big brother is my biggest supporter. He subscribes to my blog feed via email and reads my posts on his IPhone. He even calls me to talk about my projects. He is so sweet and so good to me, and I love him more than words can say.

Recently, he was given an old dresser that he planned on using for storage in the garage of his lake house. When he read my post about my old dresser turned TV Console, he was inspired to paint his dresser and use it in a bedroom, instead.

I hope these Friday Finds give my brother lots of ideas for all the fun ways his old dresser can be painted, distressed, glazed, waxed, and hardware changed for a beautiful pop of color in his lake house bedroom. Painting his dresser will be a whole new DIY experience for my brother, and I'm thrilled to have inspired it!

Have a great weekend, and a
