It's Friday, Friday

So I don't typically post at work (shhh!) but I got WAY too excited about what I saw on Julie Richard's blog Shelter that I had to share. I've been talking about needing proper night stands in our master bedroom for SOME time (like 3 years) but have always put it off because what I liked was always too expensive or I wanted to do something custom but it's hard for me to see possibilities in Craigslist items, etc. BUT today on Shelter I saw these:

This company O'verlays makes these Amazing patterns that you can add to any simple, basic furniture and make it one (or so) of a kind! I am thinking I want to do two Malm dressers from Ikea ($70ea) and add the chinese chippendale pattern to the three drawer fronts. Thoughts?

I'm not so sure about whether I want to paint the night stand or the overlay or just leave it all white. Endless possibilities!I'm sure the husband is going to be super excited about me taking on another project.... We'll see what he says.

Love it! I feel the same way about craigslist. I NEVER see anything that could work with a little TLC. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, I LOVE those! The contrasting colors look amazing, but the white is just so classy. You'll have to post the results if you do make these!
