Instead of Applying a fresh coat of paint I left the pink strips barley visible and the added the trio of black distressed diamonds on the drawers.
I then went threw my scrapbook stash and choose coordinating papers with greens and blacks and decoupaged them onto the panel insets on both sides. As I was sanding down the entire 3 drawer chest bits of green were popping out ~ this cute little chest must have been green in another life. Which is why I used paper scraps in green to match all that chippy goodness shining through.
There was about a 4 inch backsplash header piece on the top, that was perfect for adding the mosaic art of broken china. I don't know why but its so much fun taking a hammer to dishes and breaking them up :) I mainly used floral vintage china ~ I know some of you are probably thinking WHAT?? but I only break up pieces that are already chipped or broken. Sometimes at auction I purposely buy the chipped up dishes just for mosaics ~ I have a HUGE stash nobody ever wants the broken plates. Mosaics are pretty time consuming but what a fantastic way to resuse broken china.
Thanks for being here you are greatly appreciated!
Now go add some Whimsy in your life!
