TURQUOISE FRENCH DRESSER

 

Remember the before picture of the french dresser (which happens to be my first commissioned piece!)

I finally finished her! Meet “Lilian”

Again, images aren’t that great.  I’m working on that…

My client decided to keep the existing hardware and she wanted it as is.  I personally love original hardware.  I figure if you’re going to modernize the piece with paint, at least keep some of the character with using the hardware! Plus, it can always be painted too!

But then again, I’m not against changing the hardware eitherWinking smile

Let's not forget about the inside of the drawers! Since my client loved the blue and green combo, I lined the inside of the drawers with this white and green paper.  So pretty!

Wow! What a great shade of turquiose. The extra touch of lining the drawers makes even more special. Hopefully you'll have many more pieces coming your way.

Exquisite! Beyond...words. That's your best work yet. Love how soft and cool this color makes me feel. Remembers me of a piece in this Boutique Hotel on Martha's Vineyard.

If only I had a garage! I love the colors you used. Those are the colors in my bedroom. Where did you get the beautiful paper for the drawers? I want that.
