A Classic White & Navy & Gold Dresser Makeover

This dresser had gorgeous details and hardware already.  I just added a contrast so these details could stand out a little more.  Don't you all love a classic color combo?




BORING before pic...





Fresh flowers really make a photo come alive! I have no excuse for not using them in every. single. photo.

Time to put the paint up for a few days and get to holiday decorating;-)

Teal Primitive Cabinet - Before & After

I've decided...paint may be in my top 5 FAVORITE things!! It is right behind my family, my friends, the beach and chocolate desserts. Paint is magic!!












Well, what do you think? Would you recognize this piece after I painted it? To be honest, I myself, walked past it for months before purchasing it last week.  I hope you love the new painted look as much as I do! This is on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.

Happy Saturday!!

Rustic Farmhouse Dresser

This is what half water / half paint looks like! Brush on, wipe off...brush on, wipe off!  I needed a pretty weathered piece to achieve this look. I was planning to stain this piece in navy but decided on a different direction after I began to clean it up.  As most of my projects do, the dresser looks different than I planned but love the outcome. 




This dresser has served a full life already, but looks to stand another 60 years.  It's solid and very heavy. I used a wax to protect the surface and the finish. 



I replaced the old ugly hardware with these simple classic cup pulls in the bronze finish. 





I'm positive my love affair for this color will never end...I mean, really? How can you not dram of the ocean every time you see this color?

Best to all,

Dionne

My Newest Mid Century Drab to Fab Makeover

I'm thrilled to finally use this paper I purchased from The Social Club in Norman, OK.  A friend told me they sold sheets of really great paper by Ferme a Papier. I love the graphic design and colors and paired with the bold white upon wood contrast, a "one of a kind" look is created.

I have this listed on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris for $450.
