{Grace: The Dresser}

When I saw a piece that Centsational Girl painted, I totally fell in love.

I showed it to Mike and he told me to keep my eye out for a similar shape and he'd handle the rest.

The next day, I found this guy on Craigslist:

And while it cost a little more than we normally spend, we had to have it.
Mike set to work and here she is now:

Isn't she gorgeous?
She's a pale, pale turquoise with brassy pulls.

Oh, she's just beautiful and would look amazing in a nursery or bedroom (or living room, as it is at our house!).


  1. It looks sooooo much better - fresh and new rather than dull and old. Good job!!!

  2. This is such a beautiful color and a lovely dresser. You have a lovely blog. I am visiting you via Tuesday Treasures. I look forward to seeing you at My Dream Canvas.

  3. Oh I love this chest it turned out beautifully with the new colors!! Bravo!

    I hope you will come and see my new Annie Sloan Chalk Paint projects!
