Striped Love

Oh I love it so! 
I know it's naked as a jay bird handle wise but I promise you I'm just holding out for the perfect ones. 


In the mean time I just had to show you what a $1 can of pale blue sample paint, some leftover white paint, and a little tape can do (makes me do a happy dance) for a tired old dresser.

I'm currently deciding on the handles, I'd love to make some like we did with our kitchen knobs
but I think some brushed nickel bin pulls would look pretty snazzy on her too.

Now all I need is to get my desk all finished and I will finally have my Ma'am Cave!
I think I'll have to share this in a few places,
like these:

Blue Stripey Peace!


  1. This is so cute, I love the stripes too! Following you now too. I just am in the middle of painting my bath cabs cream and blue. I love how it is coming along.

  2. How about those little roundish-squareish glass knobs? They come in all kinds of pale or dark colors, and I think the crystal clear or cobalt blue would look amazing? But then again, I am a huge fan of brushed nickle!

  3. Wow! This is just beautiful. I love the stripes and the color combination is perfect.

  4. Your desk turned out really cute! I can't wait to see the knobs!

  5. I love it. The stripes are subtle but beautiful and it's such a neat piece to begin with. Great job!

    Visiting from Tatertots and Jello.

  6. Looks great, the knobs in your kitchen are amazing, what a fun idea. My favorite babysitter (age 14) has Ulceritive Colitis, and had to take her Colon out this week. That would be a hard thing to live with. Anyway, I am sure you will find some great pulls, I have found some great ones on Ebay.


  7. Thanks for stopping by Merrilee. I love your dresser. Unlike some people I love the older waterfall dressers, they remind me of my mom's old bedroom furniture. The stripes look lovely. :) I'm having two cute giveaways on my blog, one ends tonight at 11:59pm and the other doesn't end till next friday if you're interested you should stop by and enter. :)

  8. Ooo...I love the stripes and the color! So beachy perfect!

  9. That is a gorgeous dresser. The stripes are so subtle and lovely. :)

  10. Can you post some "how to" directions? A step by step on how to acheive this look?

  11. that looks gorgeous! i hopped over from tatertots & jello just to tell you how absolutely pretty it is!

  12. oh my gosh! I have the exact same dresser in my son's room and have been thinking about doing something fun like this! I love it. you did a great job. This was just the push I needed.


A kind word always brightens my day!
