This is not the original finish. The owner had used a faux finish to make it look like stained oak, it was done with a lot of care, I was fooled at first. I am saving the drawer pulls for another project, they are fantastic.
I am a small town girl and love Shabby Chic since it reminds me of home. However, I am not fond of busy patterns and I do not trust myself around the light colors. I am a fan of clean lines and the simplicity of the city apartment look. Instead of sticking to a particular style I decided to just go my own way. I like to call my style "Urban Shabby Chic".
The tiny tiny dresser on the left was the original dresser for my room. You can see how much larger the new dresser is, I love it!
The gift wrap is the perfect mini tablecloth.

Salmon and Vegetarian Pinwheels

In sending the couple off to a great start.

I call it Spaghetti goes to the Prom. I combined the slow roasted tomatoes and garlic, parm shavings, fresh basil and pine nuts over angel hair pasta. The kids here at the office just about flipped.
I work in a very small office and everyone considers me the "office mom". I like the title and love cooking for our little "family".
