Meet Nick, the dresser

Meet Nick.

It was time that Nick showed his true colors.  Christmas colors, actually.

Nick is from a time when working with your hands was common.  And his specialty was toys.  Handmade, wooden toys.

Winter is his favorite season, he loves smoking his favorite pipe, and he can never turn down a cookie.

He is a jolly old fellow, and some would say that when he laughed, his belly shook like a bowl full of jelly.

Sorry, but I couldn't stay away from the Santa references with this red piece.  I had been looking forward to trying a new kind of paint, Plaster Paint, that I first learned about from one of my favorite blogs to follow:  Three Mango Seeds.  This paint went on super easy and came out incredibly smooth.  It's my first time using it and won't be my last.

Instead of buying 12 new drawer pulls, I spray painted the original ones black to match the stain on top.  I have a new, SUPER EASY way of painting them too, that I will share in the near future.

I covered the paint in a stain/wax mixture that created a little more depth to the piece.  I'm moving good ole' Nick to Robin's Egg tomorrow where he will be looking for a new home.  Perhaps to the North Pole?

Have a Merry day,



  1. It's gorgeous!! I love red (and black) furniture. Great that you used the original hardware.

  2. Nick looks so amazing in his new coat of paint. I love how the top is a different color. Makes the whole thing much more interesting.

  3. Looks great! I love OLD RED. Plaster Paint is ah-mazing!
