I got stuck on this one. I started and I couldn’t figure out where to go! When that happens I have to put it away and look at it, waiting for it to speak to me 😉
This dresser came from a home in Mt. Uniacke. It was a beauty of a drive and the home was on a lake. Here it is before:
My partner sanded this for me, and this cute message had a double meaning; there were at least 5 different layers of paint to sand though and it was a LOT of work, but she did it because she loves me ❤️
This dresser went through two transformations before it ended up as it did. First, birches in Old White & Graphite:
Christmas came & I got Martha Stewart stencils. Ah-ha! My chance to do something different to this dresser. So, out came my sander & off went the birches!
And now the challenge: My BFF wanted a gender neutral, grown-up but still baby dresser for their soon-to-be-bundle of joy! She loves fleur de lis, and was sad to have lost the chance to snatch up the fleur de lis dresser I did last year (see that one here). One of my new Christmas stencils had a modern fleur de lis pattern -perfect opportunity 🙂
I used my favourite high end paint, Annie Sloan Chalkpaint. The frame got 2 coats of Old White:
Hope you enjoyed this makeover
