I’ve been working on so many projects around my house lately! Between that and actual work, there’s little time for blogging. But the wait is worth it because I have a fabulous DIY project to share with you! I recently created this DIY Inlaid Bone Dresser with an awesome stencil kit and a vintage dresser I bought at a yard sale for $50. I got the idea the same place I get all my other ideas… Pinterest! I pinned a bunch of inlaid bone and mother of pearl dressers and eventually came across various stenciled ideas. Then all the Pinterest stars aligned at once and I found the perfect stencil kit and the perfect inspiration photo!
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! When I bought the dresser (mine is on the right), it was at a neighborhood yard sale and seemed to have been in a little girl’s room because there was purple sparkle nail polish spilled on it. I just took that as a sign that it was meant for me! It was stained dark wood and pretty dinged up. I just gave it a good sanding with my power sander and smoothed everything out by hand then primed with Kilz Latex Primer. I used the left over Sherwin Williams paint from my kitchen cabinets as the base color (colored matched to BM’s Kendall Charcoal) and the white stencil color (Sherwin Williams Snowbound). The stencil kit is from Cutting Edge Stencils. It was so easy to use! I didn’t really pre-measure much, I just done right in and it turned out beautifully!
Lucy is delighted with the finished dresser! Now that all that work is done I can spend more time taking her to the park!
The drawer hardware is from Anthropologie, and I bought the lamp back in the Spring time at TJ Maxx.
