One of our readers, Brenda, has given us TONS of business over the years. I don’t know how she came across our blog back in the day, but a couple years ago… she had us come paint this mural in her living room. And since then we’ve sold her this end table, painted her backsplash, and made her daughter a profile plaque. I’d say this lady’s a loyal customer, and has become a valued reader and friend!
Coincidentally, she has a daughter named Paisley as well. Here’s a picture of Paisley holding Paisley when we were at their house a couple months ago painting the backsplash.
CUTE, right?! Anywho, Brenda brought us a load of furniture that needs a little cosmetic assistance. And one such piece of furniture is this charming little antique/chippy dresser that needs a facelift for Paisley’s new ‘big girl’ room!
Here are pictures of her bedding and fabric that Brenda will make into her headboard.
We were asked to make the dresser coordinate with the bright and cheery colors in Paisley’s room, using white as a base… and incorporating a ‘paisley design’. Right up my alley!
We began by sanding off all that chippy/unstable paint, to give us a smooooooth surface to prime and paint!
Once this bad boy was painted a crisp white, I used the following paisley ‘inspiration photos’ and drew on my paisleys with a pencil.
And then I started slapping on some paint! This is just TOO fun for me!
It was time consuming, yet so so enjoyable for yours truly!
Then we spayed the whole piece down with poly to seal it and make it super durable and glossy.
And to save you from having to scroll back up, here’s a before/after shot!
We can’t wait to see Paisley’s new little-BIG-girl room when it’s all finished!!!
I LOVE this! You guys never cease to amaze me.
Awesome job, I think it looks fantastic. I am a huge fan of the paisley pattern (you little girl is pretty darn cute to, though). I wanted paisley patterned bedding, but the hubby said we didn’t live in the 70’s. Oh well, I guess I will have to put them ALL over in a craft room, that will teach him. Anyway lovely job.
Very Nice, too bad I live so far away! Mary in NY
Wow. I think both Paisleys have very creative mommies!! Love the colors, the style…great work!
That is A-mazing! I wish I had a little girl to paint that for! However, I don’t think little boys I have would appreciate it like little girls would! LOVE IT!
LOVE IT!!! Just what it needed! I see ya took it in the house to doodle on it with the babies:) It’s gonna be perfect for her room! Now to figure out when to come get so here to show Grandma next week! Thank you sooooo much! Can’t wait to see everything else!
