Ribbons and Bows Dresser

Remember the sneak peak of some ribbon I showed you last week?

Well here's how I used it.


Sweet little bows.


Sweet little keyhole. 



And don't you love the lamps?! 

Thank you Hobby Lobby. :)



The bows are removable so it could look like this as well. 


Here's the before, minus one drawer. 


The dresser is painted in oil based Marigold by Sherwin Williams in high gloss.

The hardware is stained in Minwax Mission Oak (I LOVE this stain on the wood knobs from Home Depot. It gives the wood a beautiful tortoise shell finish.)

For more info look under the The Shop tab at the top of the page.

 PS I'm sharing the tutorial for the removable bows over at Embracing Change tomorrow so make sure to stop by and check it out!
