I’m slowly making progress on the little charcoal dresser. Still have to work on the drawers and top, but I’m getting close!

Back and sides have 2 coats of Mudpaint but the front still needs sanding and one more coat. Then it’s time for the topcoat to seal everything in.


After much searching I found this beautiful “painted arrows” paper to line the drawers at a local gift shop here in Bend.

One more “before” photo to share with you . . . this is what the drawers look like now . . . but not for long!

Drawers before . . . original stain "drips" add character and won't be painted over!

STAY TUNED . . . tomorrow is BAKING DAY!!! I’m really excited to use a locally made product and add my baking to it to create something refreshing and delicious!

Rustic Nectarine Crostata

Trader Joe’s had 4lbs of nectarines for $5.49! They were all ripe at the same time so I just had to bake!

Check out the recipe for Rustic Peach and Nectarine Crostata. It was pretty easy to make, just follow the instructions and you can do this! **I only used nectarines…no peaches. Also, I added some candied Walnuts near the end of the cooking time. Yum!!!

yummm, ripe nectarines!

first post…here we go!

This is my first painted furniture project for juniper & pine, which is my new business name, inspired by my favorite smells of Bend! I found this cute little dresser on craigslist and I’ve been sanding and painting for a week or so now. It’s getting a couple of coats of Mudpaint (more on this new paint company in a future post) in Charcoal, some teal faceted pulls and hopefully, a new owner who will appreciate all my efforts to save and make functional this handmade piece of furniture.
