Farmhouse perfect

By Kristy Chorostecki at Dandelion Designs in Belvidere, IL.

As soon as I started sanding this little dresser I knew the drawers needed to be stained.  The plan (which we all know as creatives changes with EVERY project) was to paint the entire thing in Higgins Lake by Wise Owl, I partially followed the plan. This was one of those pieces that I stepped back, looked at, and knew I couldn't give it up.  This one needed to stay in my home forever.  It was the first piece that I decided to keep after starting my business.  My kitchen needed this and now it has it!
