Yes I did jump out of bed, thank you very much!
Her dresser has seen many days of hair fixations, and fix-ups, and endless moments of make overs. All which have resulted in a completely crappy piece of furniture - complete with hair dye that took more than 5 coats of Kilz to cover over!
Here's what I started with:
See that nasty red stain?
I had nightmares over that thing!
Luckily the little resin star embellishments were easy enough to take off with a hammer and small chisel. These may go on Etsy. Any takers?
So after a few coats of white and all that kilz on the red dye stain....
And a few stripes, several coats of various types of metallic color and patina, and nice, light, allover stain....
This is what she got.....
With all these added little details thrown in as well.....
Had to add some red for a *pop* of color, and some vintage valves for drawer pulls!
Blue pulls added an awesome contrast to this!
The most important part is that she loves it, and that girl is NOT easy to please!
I snuck in and took a picture of her with it. Don't tell her though - it'll start a war!
