My Friend Has the Blues!

Blue and Brown Dresser Makeover from Denise on a Whim
I was asked to paint this dresser for my friend.
She's probably my best repeat customer ever!
And she has a tiny, little fixation with the color blue.
For this dresser, I went with Virginia Chestnut as the base.
Then, of course, used blue, too!

The drawer fronts are brushed in blue.
As is a wide stripe on the sides.

The top got the same blue treatment.

I let some of the brown show through.

Here is the dresser before I started painting.
No blue in sight.
That definitely needed to change!

We did use the same knobs.
The silver looks quite nice with the Duck Egg blue!

This is not the first thing I've painted for Karlye.
She purchased this beautiful blue desk I made over.

 Nor is it the second.
She had me paint this dresser for her as well.

And let's not forget this gorgeous antique!
(the only reason it isn't blue is because it was
originally going to be a gift for someone else!)
