striped dresser.

a couple of days ago, i completed this little dresser makeover...

here is the "before":

a little boring, but you can tell that it has great potential!

after!

we drew inspiration from the fun curtains. the blue is a few shades darker than the blue in the curtains, and i did a light stria for the stripes, instead of full-on blocked color. a little softer for a little girl's room. my client will be putting these knobs from anthropologie (in silver) on the dresser when it's all dry.

*** update! my client just sent me this photo of the dresser with the knobs on it now - so cute! ***

  8. thanks, everyone!

    courtney, the blue is called "i'm so blue" by benjamin moore (i think...it's something with a really weird name like that! i left the paint at my client's, so i'm not positive!)
