  1. man these are good finds!

    Love the stairs...... and the chest of drawers... of course!

  2. I want to do that to my stairs - awesome!!!

  3. I think the stairs are great too - you can be as subtle or as dramatic as you want!

  4. thank you for always sharing the green!


  5. where did you get that adorable blue contact paper for the drawers on the blue dresser? SO cute.. I'm looking for some for a piece I'm restoring and am having a hard time finding unique contact/wall paper like that. Thanks!

  6. sorry for the delayed response - the paper you are interested was a vintage paper. If you are looking for a current version that is similar, Mod Green Pod is a green company that makes non-toxic, PVC-free wallpaper and fabric. Their prints are whimsical but modern. I love them. I hope this helps. Thanks for reading PGD!

  7. Awesome ideas! Love them!
