candace's d-i-y project

Candace's dresser before the makeover.

Candace's dresser post warm chocolaty paint goodness.

Just as I am calling for your best organizing tips, I would like to add your d-i-y design projects to the list too. Send me pictures and details about your favorite project: something that you built, decorated or otherwise redesigned in your own space. I'll share them with readers as I recieve them. Here is one to get you all inspired to send something my way.

Candace, my friend in decorating, bought a great little dresser at Simply Renewed, to use as her tv console. Cleverly, it stores and hides dvd's, cd's, and Derek's video controlers and games. However, the burgandy hue was not jiving so much with the earthy new color scheme of brown and green. So, she painted it Benjamin Moore's Wood Grain Brown. She found the great off-white knobs, which add a splash of contrast, at Target.

Doesn't it look fabulous? Great work Candace, be proud of yourself!
Okay, so, send your projects in! Feel free to narrate the experience, or add any nuggets of knowledge you garnered, that you would like to pass on. Please email text and images to me at bchicdesign@gmail.com!

Looking at these side-by-side, what a difference! I'm loving the new look. Thanks for your help! Next project is the unfinished bookshelf. I'm using the dresser as inspiration. I'll have to run my two-tone plan by you soon.
