Happy Tuesday #sifamily! Have you started your Christmas shopping and decorating? I haven’t started mine yet but I’m in the mood to start a new holiday tradition here on the #siblog. Last year, I never listed or sold this curb-shopped washstand, so when I saw it sitting in my inventory, I had an idea. How much fun would it be to see how many different Christmas looks can we give this cutie each year!
You may remember this sweet Buffalo Check Plaid makeover last year…
I went with the opposite traditional Christmas color, Dixie Belle Paint in “Evergreen” and here’s the new 2019 version…
Two totally different looks but equally Christmassy — don’t’ you think!?

You all know I’m no video guru (don’t laugh too hard!) but I tried something new. I created a time-lapse video of the entire process from start to finish. I’d love to get your feedback on this. I’m thinking maybe subtitles along the bottom of the screen explaining each step in addition to you watching. ?? Feel free to chime in and let me know what would be helpful to you.
If you have any issues viewing – you can check it out here on my Youtube Channel.

I love the contrast of the dark stained wood and the Evergreen!
And the dark wax and gilding wax added the final touches.
So what’s your vote? A or B? Team green or team red?
Whichever one you prefer, I hope this Christmas makeover inspires some ideas for your upcycling projects. You guys always inspire me so thank YOU!
I LOVE TO HEAR YOUR QUESTIONS AND/OR TIPS. FEEL FREE TO CHIME IN… I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU. 🙂
Happy furniture painting my friends! 🙂
