We have an old dresser that I decided to move into the living room. Some (such as my dh) would just see an old dark dated dresser, but in my mind's eye, I see it painted creamy ivory, the old handles changed out to crystal ones, and it brimming with vintage loveliness........ I don't have it painted yet, but I have started filling it with some of my pretties, as you can see in the photo ~~ this is in one of the tiny drawers. I just knew I wanted this dresser to have linens, lace, roses, pearls & such spilling out from the drawers....... as soon as the weather warms enough, it will be completely transformed, and I will share before and after pictures with you!

Update on my Spring Giveaway: I see we are nearing 100 entries, and that absolutely delights me! I decided that I want to add another prize, which I will be doing shortly, so there will be at least two prizes offered, if not more! Stay tuned, and thank you all for entering, what a true joy it is to *meet* all of you!

I love the idea of an old dresser full of linens and lace. The pink bird is wonderful too. I can't wait to see a picture of the dresser when you finish.
