Dirt Road Style: Reese!

Nobody can pull off my dream style better than Reese Witherspoon. If I could pick through anyone's closet, she would be on the top of the list. So super casual and put-together at the same time, no matter what look she's going for. Here are a few examples:

Dirt Road Decor: $7 White Octagon End Table

This is by far my favourite piece I have done yet. And it cost a grand total of a Whopping $7.00!! The table was a $5.00 find from Goodwill and a $2.00 can of White paint from Wal-Mart, and boom! my new end table.

Yeah, so pretty before, eh? I should have just left it as is....

And check the lamp. A Gordman's find on my last Grand Forks trip. Took me over a year to find the perfect lamps. You cant see it in the pic, but there is a great pattern embroidered into the white lamp shade. It all looks super chic together!

Dirt Road Decor: Real Teal nightstand

This is a lil $10 Thrift Store find that was, for lack of a better term, ass ugly, so I needed to rescue it and use up the rest of my Real teal paint, and grad some new hardware and voila!

Dirt Road Decor: Red and White Dresser

My bedroom dresser has been painted over and over and over and over and...... well, you get the idea. My 2 year life plan involves a king-sized bed, a brand new bedroom set...and a house with a bedroom big enough for this.

Anyways, so i figured since this dresser is 324 years old and has 76 layers of paint already on it (which includes pink, purple, white, navy blue, black and grey all in my lifespan with it), what does one more layer hurt?

So, here is the result...and some fancy new drawer hardware too!

Dirt Road Decor: Mahogany Stained Night Stand.

I'm kind of a big deal. My apartment smells of rich mahogany....

No, really, it does!!

I found this night stand at the thrift store for $20 and it was in great shape. I took a chance and stained it red mahogany, not knowing if it would work out since it was mdf and not 'real wood' but the end result was exactly what I was looking for.
