a magical day :: creating with the best

waverly-7-flowers waverly-3-paint waverly-1-dresser waverly-2-barbandrachelA few weeks ago, I had the privilege of collaborating with some really amazing people! Rachel Faucett of Handmade Charlotte contacted me about a new paint line making its debut and wanted to know if I would paint and create with her! Would I EVER! Rachel is one of the most creative, energetic, hilarious, and generous people that I am privileged to know….and any chance I can get to spend time with her is A ok with me!

You can read all about our day together here, and if you want the full scoop on the new paint line visit here for the tutorial and the deets!

Head to your local Walmart to pick up some paint, and know that I painted this entire dresser with ONE bottle….which will cost you all of eight bucks! The clear wax is amazing too…..probably on of my favorite new products. It pours out and applies very much like a polyurethane! How cool is that!?

Thank you Waverly, Plaid, Walmart, and Rachel Faucett for a super fun time…..and thank you Paige French for the amazing photography! (as always!)

Have a great weekend!

    Love the dresser, blue and bunnies!! Now, if you ever come across lamb or goat ‘knobs’, I’m your girl!!! (wink)

      Thank you Jenny!
      “Work” should be all about having fun and enjoying what you do! I agree…..and I know you know that feeling as well!

      I will absolutely let you know if I find any goat or lamb pulls! :} xo

  3. Hi Barb. I bought your book last year and love it. I’ve been painting furniture for many years and love what you’ve done to so many pieces. Can you tell me where you found the adorable rabbit pulls on your dresser? They look like something from Anthropologie but maybe you have found a whole sale supplier of these cute handles.

      Hello Lelise!

      Thank you so much! I’m thrilled you enjoyed the book!

      I’m so sorry that I am so late in responding to this! ;/ BUT……these knobs are from Anthropologie indeed. I am not sure they still have them but it might be worth a check! xo
