A Turqouise Dream

This transformation unfortunately does NOT come with a before least not until I FIND the picture I took of it 12 years ago when it was my daughters dresser. Prior to that, it belonged to my ex father in law when he was a boy. I painted some flowers and bows on the drawers, gave it a fresh coat of poly and a changing pad...:)

Now it's got a new life with some pulls I recylcled off of a pair of nightstands, a fresh coat of paint, and a fun beachy feel! It's become the guest room dresser. I LOVE how it turned out, though the turquoise drawers were an after thought. Originally I painted it all white and antiqued it...FAIL...didn't like the look ant it was just too "ho hum". So I went to Lowes and purchased a sample can of some fun turquoise paint that I LOVE...and you WILL be seeing more of the color on some other projects soon...:) A little bit of antiquing with glaze and brown paint...and some strategic sanding. I'm totally in L - O - V - E with it! ya go...hope you like it...:)
