Cobalt Blue and Gold Mid Century Dresser

I may have a new favorite color!  This deep saturated blue is amazing, especially on this mid century dresser.  The original gold bow tie hardware really pops off this color.  I made the art work too, had to use this blue in more than one place! 


I used "Work of Art" by Clark + Kensington paint for this piece.  It covered beautifully!

This lovely thing is available today on my Etsy site, The Turquoise Iris.

Happy Wednesday!!

The Royal Blue Peacock Buffet

I present to you, Her Royal Peacock.  

This piece turned out very dramatic.  The blue, with the gold, combined with the peacock makes for quite an appearance! 

I think she is just. so. lovely.

This is a poster applied to the doors, not paint.  I sold this piece before I could even post this but I still wanted to share it.  

Have a wonderful weekend!

"Ballard Inspired " Vintage Rolling Cart With Extensions

This piece is timeless and classic. It took me some time to decide on my color choice.  I actually consulted my Instagram followers for advise and input.  Gray was the top suggestion. This is a blue / gray that will work in well with other colors.  It's neutral enough to blend but special as a statement piece, too.

This will extend from 41" to 70" when both sides are open. 


Happy Monday!!

My Week in Makeovers

At some point, I may get tired of this color. Whether you call it emerald or jade or kelly, I LOVE it!! It especially glows when paired with another jewel tone. 

This piece is for sale today on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.  

I see this vintage cabinet in an entryway, foyer or hall but the size will allow it to hangout in any room of your home. 

 Secondly, I painted this antique desk for a friend.  She has three daughters that will use this as a computer desk.  It is old but solid and I wanted to glam it up a bit for these stylish teens.

This was my week.  What did you guys worked on?
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
