Art Deco Dresser with stripes

Hello There Lovelies!
.
What a gorgeous spring Friday morning! I woke this morning with an incredible sense of gratitude. Im so thankful for everything in my life that the Lord has blessed me with.  I just feel like today should be a day of "paying it forward" ~ Spread the Love..Just try to put a smile on every person face that i come in contact today, yep thats my goal. Everyone deserves a happy heart. So lets start the day with some pretties, I know that always makes me happy. :)

 Ive had this Art Deco Dresser for a really long time just taken up space in my garage~ I never really liked it so it was hard for me to see the potential. I searched pintrest trying to get some sort of inspiration on how to go about painting this piece. I knew it had to be something cool to give it some umph (i know thats not a word). When i came across furniture that other people had painted stripes i knew that was it. So out came the paint brushes and CeCe Caldwells Vintage white paint and the Annie Sloan custom mix of Duck Egg Blug and Old White for the stripes and away i went.

 Aren't those handles cool! That is why i bought this dresser. I'm a sucker for vintage hardware.


 So what do ya think?
Im not over the moon about it but my firefighter wanted to keep it, which made me feel better. It does have great ample storage and drawer dividers love that! And its a sturdy (not dirty, Neely :}) dresser, good thick solid wood.
Antique Fire Extinguisher ~ i can't ever pass these up. Really neat piece of history and the patina on them is just awesome!

And here he ( doesn't this dresser seem sort of manly) girlyfied (another tattered elegance word) in the shop. He is for sale for $120.00.





 Looking at my shop pics ~ boy do i have a thing for Blue! I can't express enough how much i love Annie Sloan chalk paint. Iv'e used alot of Duck Egg Blue and Abusson Blue and my latest love this week is Versailles it sort of a mossy green color. Like me on Facebook i try to post pics of what im working on.



 Thanks for sticking around i hope i put a smile on your face today!
Have a Terrific Weekend ~ every weekend!!!

Hi Erica,
I think your booth looks fabulous!
I love the design that you gave the dresser and the hardware is amazing. I love antique hardware too....there is just something so artsy about it.
Wish I could make a trip to your shop.

hugs

I love the new look! You did a great job! The stripes resemble a French Grain Sack look which is so popular. She will sell quickly! :)

dear erica,
we actually saw your striped dresser at time n again today. it's even lovelier "in person." what a fabulous idea! (and your entire area looked lovely.) we couldn't stay long...we had our truck open and tied-down, stuffed full of the day's finds. :-)
blessings,
