Project Furniture RE-finish

 My husband loves to give new life and a new, updated look to old furniture.  This dresser came from my great aunts house and used to be gold and this green/beige color that was really not so pretty.  This dresser will be going in my girls room.  He put new pulls on it as well and I talked him into going to Hobby Lobby with me to check out their drawer pulls and these cute butterflies (since it is going in the girls room).
 See how darling these butterfly pulls are?!!!
 Next is this beautiful picture.  It came from the same great aunts house.  I wish I had a before picture of this.  The frame was gold.  The picture seemed dark and foreboding with the gold frame and it dulled the picture as well.  Now that the frame is a white color I think the picture looks peaceful and serene and the colors more vibrant.  This picture now happily hangs in my dinning room.
 And lastly... new curtains for the living room.  I love reds and I love blues with brown but not both red and blue with brown.  So we are steering away from the reds in the living room for now and going with blues.  I found these beauties and couldn't resist.  Now to find some pillow coverings that are blues that will cover up my couch pillows.  I have more projects up my sleeves, just waiting to move to the top of the list.  I found the cutest fabric store in Lake Chelan that I am so excited to go and visit again.  Now that I am starting to settle into life here, projects should start popping out regularly.
