I found this antique bow front dresser two years ago during a trip to one of my favorite places ~ Traverse City, Michigan.

I usually  bi-pass pieces that need a lot of work and this one was definitely in need of some TLC, but I knew there was a hidden gem waiting to be discovered.

I hauled it home then stashed it in our workshop for years.  Each time I thought about working on it, I dreaded removing the damaged veneer so I'd push it aside and move on to another piece.  I had it so long that I actually tried listing it for $45.  Apparently nobody else wanted to make the repairs either so I decided to dig in and salvage it.  I had just returned to work after my surgery to remove Chondrosarcoma and I was on a mission for new beginnings!

Don't fight the Character, Embrace it!

It was love at first sight when I spotted this piece at a local thrift shop.  Just look at her fabulous detail! I could see the potential for new life but I wanted to give her some function as well since the original stereo was missing.  We took it to DeVos Place in Grand Rapids,...

Our Jenison Shizzle Shop will be closed Wednesday, August 19 as my family and I meet a team of doctors at Spectrum Health's Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion.

Today I'm revisiting one of our most popular posts written a couple years ago.  I love painting this whimsical patchwork style and on this cold, dreary, SNOWY April day, I needed a little whimsy to brighten my spirits.  Hoping for warmer days ahead this summer.  Enjoy!!
