Reimagined Monday: Handmade Bureau Gets An Update!

Today's Reimagined Monday post comes to us from the lovely Laura Aberg.  We were very excited to have the opportunity to reimagine Laura's dining suite to fit with the decor in her brand new home, and while we were hard at work on that, Laura undertook a project of her own.  In Laura's words:

"This old bureau was handmade for my mother when she was a little girl living on a farm near Drumheller. Fast forward 30 years and it was handed down to me and my mother repainted it. I am a mother now to a sweet, lovely, rambunctious 2.5 year old daughter, and we just moved into a new house. So I took the old bureau on a "re-loved adventure".

Here are the before, during and after pictures! One word describes this piece- 'sweet'!"

It's coming together!
All done and in place

It's even sweeter when a loved item can be reimagined to work with current decor and kept in the family. 

This pretty little bureau is one-of-a-kind in every way!
