Oh so close to being Finished

This will be the last picture of this project, I promise! I thought it was complete until I realized that I bought only eight knobs instead of ten! My daughter suggested that I buy glass (these are a hard plastic) knobs for the bureau. I agreed until I saw the price of the glass knobs compared to practical unfinished wooden knobs. As you can see the I bought the "glass" knobs and I am so glad I did. They make this project, again it is all about the details!

I ran around the house this morning pulling this and that from different rooms to make a cute display. Now, that I photograph it I think I am in trouble. I really like the way it looks. I may have to go out and buy a glass candle holder and make another floral arrangement. I am going out anyway to buy 2 more knobs, so I may have to add a few things to my shopping list.

A little bit of springtime for sure.


I am not sure but I think there is a bird of some kind in every room of our house. I bought only four of these birds, but I am sure my father bought a few too. I see a visit to my parents in my future. This room could use more lighting so there will be a lamp on my list too. Someday, I will do a post on all the lamps my father has put together for me.



What would a before and after project be without the before picture? Here it is, not a bad bureau, but I like it so much more now!
Today I joined Project Friday at Sugar Plum Cottage.
Pop on over there to see all the other projects.
Thanks for Visiting!

You did a great job on this. I had one very much like your finished one when I was a young girl. I really like the glass knobs. :)

This turned out beautifully, I love re-finishing furniture, and making old things new again. The knobs were definitely the right choice.

An amazing transformation! The before looks dilapidated, but it takes a good eye with vision to see its potential, and to realize it. Your after is so pretty! I agree---beautiful knobs can take a piece from "okay" to "Wow". They add that punch. Love the display on top too. Birds add lightness and joy to every room...
