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 off 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.

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

a trim of the Tiffany blue along the bottom wavy edge 

to show off the detail and a small border along 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.
