R H look for a nursery...

So I've been sweating away in my garage working on this piece for a baby's nursery...

Original sign by Melaine at My Sweet Savannah

The base of the piece is painted using Martha Stewart Ironstone White that I made into chalk paint using this amazing additive:  Websters Chalk Paint Powder  You can buy some from my sweet cousin, Carolyn over at Sweet Tea & Linen  You simply add a few tablespoons into your latex paint, and VIOLA!  Chalk Paint.  I'm smitten with it!

The top is stripped, sanded and stained using Old Grey.  I then gave it a coat of clear wax and buffed it out to a soft shine.

Lots of pieces to complete this weekend for I Spy....The Perfect Piece.  Then some homeschooling time & the library ceiling starts SATURDAY.  See?  All caps, so it's a commitment ;)


  1. How is assistant Sara working out? Haven't heard much about what she is doing to help.

  2. Great piece! I wish I had used a nice dresser for my girls nurseries. My mother in law bought a rather tacky nursery set which 9 years later, I'm using for my third baby. I do keep the dresser in the closet though :)

  3. this turned out beautifully, and could easily be used in any room of the house!


Thanks so much for popping in. I appreciate all of your lovely comments...Tricia
