Creative furniture makeover

I've been working on a fun makeover for LOCA's fun funky furnishings fundraiser

being held next Sunday May 4th, here in Laguna Beach.

My girlfriend Trudy, had this dresser she was willing to donate to the cause

and she even offered to prime and paint it white.

Then she dropped it of for me to play with!

I created new ceramic seashell drawer pulls for it,

and went with an ombré effect using a Tiffany blue color scheme on the drawers.

Then I chose to edge the drawers with a white border and add 

a trim of the blue along the bottom wavy edge to show off the detail

and a small border on the top 

to accent the little hand painted sea creatures,

that will be embellishing the top of the dresser.

If you're in the area try to make it by, and bring your friends,
 it's for a great cause, so bid generously!

  1. Hi, Paulette. It's always a treat to stop by. The chest of drawers is juster so elegant with the shell pulls. Really liked your lace/doily teapot a few posts back.
    best, nadia

  2. Lovely dresser Paulette! Just perfect for a beach house. You do such exceptional work and are so talented. I would love to be able to paint like that.
