::Little Cottage Dresser::

One of my dearest friends was getting out of the biz about a year ago. She is honestly one of the most talented ladies I know!  You know that booth or space you go into for inspiration or just to make you happy?  Yup, that was her.  This little gem was a project piece that she was ready to get rid of and I was HAPPY to take it! :0)

Isn't it lovely? I have had this little dresser a whole long time and I did not know what to do with it. I really loved it - just like this. I absolutely adored the color but the problem was that it was real drippy, not a cool drippy either...yes, there is a difference! Eehheeh 

I decided to go with a fresh cottage look. My goal was to expose the real wood because it is just ah-mazing! There was a bunch of layers of paint on it, so I went for the paint remover, UGH!! Not my favorite.

This is what I got after 3 treatments, seriously not fun. After going through a WHOLE can of paint remover, I went and picked up a new brand. Holy Smokes! Jasco is wonderful!! One spray on the door and drawers and it almost wiped the paint clean off!! 

Word of advice: Wear your gloves because it really burns your skin! 

After it was cleaned off, I painted the rest of the dresser with Pure White Chalk Paint®, distressed it a bit, clear waxed it and changed the knobs. 

This is her now! I'm loving the wood but I wish I could have used her original knobs.  They were too broken, boo!

::Sweet Salvage~March::

Spring has sprung! 

We are so lucky to live in Arizona during March. The weather is perfect, the birds are chirping and flowers are blooming, everywhere!  Sweet Salvage was no exception and now having the courtyard...It's a gardener's dream!  

Inside was just a perfect blend of home decor and outside elements.  

Look at that cabinet!  I think it was my favorite piece of this whole show!

Ooooh, that tail gate! AND there is one of my favorite olive buckets!!

For my space I went a little garden whimsical!  

Have you started gardening yet?

::Fun Times::

So many things are going on in our little Grungy Galz world!  

In December we were busy with Sweet Flea.
That is the AMAZING show at Sweet Salvage where we give back to the YOU!
With many sweet deals & free items!! 

January was Room For Improvement
It was filled with new improvements, like the WAREHOUSE!! 

The warehouse is filled with amazing salvage, decor and more! 

Grungy Galz  got a bigger space. 
It has been so much fun to vignette and I now have room for more junk! 

...clothes, hair accessories and more boutique stuff!

February was Rustic Luxe, this was sooo much fun! 
I'm big on pallets, how about you?  
We decided to make a couch out of a couple...Four to be exact!  

I also had Crafty Hubby whip up one of his Mason Jar Chandy's.  
I love these guys, I'm thinking we need one for our house. 

Fun times indeed!
