Pretty Girl



I am proud of myself. It only took 3 months to accomplish, but I got it done, and it shines like the top of the Chrysler Building. My hubby says it's his new favorite. That makes me feel good. Thanks Sweetie. Below, is the before. Boring. Old. Sad little dresser. Now she has a new lease on life and is positively luminous. A stark contrast to her former self (and my disheveled garage.) I kept the original hardware, which I actually liked quite a bit. But, I wanted them to disappear into the stripe. So I painted them the same color, for a sleek streamlined look, on a less than sleek piece of furniture. I like the juxtaposition of the two styles on the same piece. Of course, that my style in general...modern look, with classic bones. So whatcha think...is she a hit? I can't help but feel she is. ( =

That is fabulous! I love this look! The silver almost looks like mirrors. This is really, really inspirational. Would you be willing to share the paint colors used?

Thanks for such an inspiring blog!

What a beautiful dresser you did a good job it is beautiful. My dresser in my old bedroom at my mother's house looks a lot like the one you had. You took your dresser to a whole nother level.

The hubby and I just striped and restained a beautiful vintage dresser and chest thrift find. The dresser has a beautiful round mirror and it has a bakelite orange and gold ornament on it. We stained the dresser and chest a beautiful rich bombay mahogany and it looks so good in our bedroom. It was a fun project we love it.

The transformation is truly amazing. Did you paint the inside of the dresser as well as the inside of the drawers?
