Dreamy colors here on this gorgeous vintage 
dresser / buffet!

I can't seem to ever get enough of turquoise or teal or aqua or cobalt or sapphire or tiffany blue or mint or emerald or jade or....

 This is latex paint, colors are Benjamin Moore:)
I sold this piece already:) 
The client asked if I could add legs, 
I happily obliged!
Take a look now...
Excellent suggestion...I love it even more now!
What do you think?

Vintage Yellow Distressed French Dresser

Oh yes, friends! This color and I are getting 
to be close buddies...

I just finished painting this gorgeous dresser in a sunshine yellow. 
The new tomato red knobs really pop with this color! 

 I added pretty chevron paper to the center drawers;) 
 Love this piece staged with my new rug and my Picasso print I found at the flea market!
This dresser is for sale on my Etsy shop, 
The Turquoise Iris.  
And...here's the tired old before photo...
oh my, right?
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Indigo Blue Vintage Dresser...LOVE

There is no doubt to anyone that I love to paint 
any shade of blue!  
This indigo color, I self mixed, is no exception.
Paired with the original bronze hardware, 
the contrast is so chic!

Color crush;)
I attached this faux bois paper to the hidden 
drawers for a sophisticated look.

 Below are a couple of the before pics.
Have a super Sunday!

Partying with Miss Mustard Seed

Teal and Cobalt Blue Distressed Dresser/Buffet

Go bold or go home, right?! 
This 9 drawer dresser screams, "look at me"! 
Sometimes it just feels good to add this kind of bold color to your home. 

I'm always inspired by buildings, doors and any pieces of architectural history. So for this, my mind went to the multi-colored buildings in Mexico. Plus, I am always looking to add teal or turquoise to any piece of furniture! I added legs to this piece to give it a bit more height and I love having it off the floor. All hardware is original and fabulous:)

This little wild thing is ready to purchase on my shop, The Turquoise Iris!

Just wanted to share a little of where my inspiration came from for this piece...
Tremendously beautiful color in this shot.

Have a fun weekend!

Antique Dresser & Mirror in Sunshine Yellow

I had to almost get in a fist fight at Goodwill for this piece ( seriously, my heart was racing ) It was love at first sight, no one was going to buy it right from under me! 
It was soooo worth the fight, or "stare down" may be a better word. :)
Check it out now that I've painted it in this Sunshine yellow from Benjamin Moore!

Happy, happy, happy! :)
This dresser is up for sale on my Etsy shop,

Vintage Dresser in Emerald with Sapphire Accents

No longer green with envy...this could be yours. I LOVE this color combination.

I painted a gorgeous shade of green on this vintage triple dresser and added the sapphire color inside the cabinet area, the drawers, and I also replaced 2 original knobs with these 2. Together the entire piece speaks volume. This is truly a one of a kind dresser.

This little jewel is up for sale on my Etsy shop,
