Black and yellow....

Yeah you know what it is. Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow.

Yep. Pretty much been singing that song since yesterday when we painted our dresser - you guessed and yellow. We are thugs.

You see once upon a time there lived an adorable bachelor man. Who had some not-so-adorable friends who left a sugary drink on his dresser. The drink sat and sat until it leaked it's sugary goo all over the dresser. And what did the adorable bachelor man do? Put packing tape over the mess. Many many strips of packing tape. Oy vey.

Well, the dresser came with the man when we said I do. And I just knew that with a little sanding, perhaps a razor and a little cursing of the day when the the packing tape was put on this could be fixed.

This little project cost about $15 for paint and half of a Sunday afternoon. And, once again, a piece of furniture has stolen my heart.

Unfortunately in all my excitement to paint I did NOT take a before picture. Serious fail....but luckily, our dresser looked like many a dressers so I'll just show you a picture of a dresser tha resembled our before picture.

And here she is now. In all of her sunshiney glory.

Haha do you see the part where I put the handles back on the wrong way? Ugh. Gotta fix that. But anyways, there it is:)


  1. Cheese and rice!!! I seriously fell in love with this at first sight... GO YOU!! you are so decorating my house for me some day

  6. lol thanks, but they are usually not this pretty! at Aveda they teach you how to do a manicure to perfection, but it doesnt work the same on your own hands! i also realized on that post that i have hairy toes! ewww!!!

    :) have a great day!

  7. Um, I kinda like the handles on the wrong way! I vote to leave it. : )

  8. Hi There, I saw a comment you left over on TomKatStudios blog about attending Creative Estates Conference this weekend. I am not sure if your still looking for a ticket but I have one and I am unable to attend. I would hate for it to go to waste so I am hoping someone can pick it up! I am willing to part with it for 75.00!
    If you are interested please let me know
