antiqued dresser

this dresser was a piece that my client had inherited, but having found this photo in a horchow catalog, decided that it might be nicer painted to look like the piece in the photo. enter: me. :)

the catalog clipping:

she has a ton of cornflower blues through her bedroom and entire house, so we were trying to go with a slightly more true blue color than the one in the photo. here is the final result!

it's a little difficult to capture the exact color in the photos, because the room was dark when i took them, but you get the idea!

  3. Hi, stopping in for the first time to your blog. This looks wonderful with the style of her room. It's amazing how a little paint can totally transform a piece.
