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!!!
