Well I have been refinishing and making over so many pieces for resale at the shop and pieces for customers.   I came across something and thought, "this one is for me".

Here it is.....children's dresser found for FREE in my neighborhood.

Now anyone who knows me knows that I do not like blue at all....however I have been obsessed with Blue Montana Sky from CeCe Caldwell's Paints

Here is my 1st idea to go blue then I wanted to go a little funky with my plan which was to be functional since this space was now missing the former big hutch

I was inspired by a painting of mine, terracotta pots and lemons.

Well here it is..........my new kitchen storage space.  Bottom drawers were left natural wood and intact to hold napkin rings, place mats and napkins.  The wood also matches the color of the kitchen cabinets.

Now the chair I just left there because it was too tattered for the shop and it was the same honey wood color.  I have had that painting for awhile and I love it because it reminds me of Italian countryside, which is the team of my kitchen.

I think Im happy with my blue obsession and my new piece.

For more info on CeCe Caldwell's Paints go HERE

The paints are also available at Lucky 7 Design Shop, I use this paint of all of my pieces by personal choice. I have tried them all and I feel that this is best for me and my concept of living a GREEN lifestyle and having an eco-friendly shop.


I have been so busy with the shop I haven't joined some of my favorite linky parties in awhile...so Im going to visit the best at



  1. What a clever makeover! It's so great to find something cheap or free and give it a whole new look!

  2. Thank you Eddie, your such a sweetheart and absolutely right....those makeovers are the best kind!

  3. Love this!! I would have never thought to take out the drawers. Such a simple thing to do, and it transforms the whole piece!

  4. Thanks so much...I really needed storage for dishes and I have been wanted to try turning some sort of dresser into shelving pieces..this just happened to be the one.

  5. Wow! It's whole new piece! Love the shelves in place of the drawers. Very eye catching.

    ps. I'm secretly in love with all the blues floating around blogland. :)

  6. What a wonderful redo. Love the wood drawers and shelves !!!!

  7. Love the storage piece from that yucky old dresser! Like the wood drawer fronts!

  8. Love the storage piece made from that yucky old piece. Really like the contrast of wooden drawer fronts. What an inspiration!


God don't like ugly! Neither do I...so if you dont have something nice to say.....keep it to yourself!
