some saturday fun

I should have been cleaning... catching up on laundry... fluffing the pillows for my sister's arrival... BUT I wanted to have some fun! :)

Pictures just do not do it justice! Just don't! :) My grandmama gave me this Lane dresser a while back... how incredible is that! I just love the fact that it was hers! I am crazy for it... crazy for the lines of it! Really simple... clean... and hip to boot!

Anyway... I hope her eyes do not pop out of socket... I distressed it! Really aged it & put "wear" on it. I love the way it turned out. It is a really warm heirloom white (cream). For me... I love the look! Just for what I was shooting!

LOVE it! I remember Mom and Dad getting that furniture (bedroom) somewhere in the really early 60's if not late 59....you do the math! A great redo! You are so talented! Love, love, love it! (and the Fox Family, too)
