No trip to the local bakery was ever complete without a slab of vanilla slice. I'm not sure we ever did master the art of taking a large bite without that delicious custard filling spilling over our fingers. But that was half the fun.
Here is the before & after of a resale shop buy I painted for my granddaughter. Her favorite color is any purple, she loves butterflies, and her name begins with a K. This was the first time I have ever stenciled. The whole process was a blast to do. The crowning effect was a sheet of 1/4" plate glass with the front edge beveled. I covered the bottom of all 6 drawers with purple fabric.
I like the butterfly theme of this dresser. My granddaughter suggested I add a butterfly to the center of each drawer, so I believe I will be stenciling a few more butterflies!
Pick up a mid-century style dresser or desk from a garage sale or thrift store, choose your favourite color palette, and paint each drawer a different shade in that palette. Leave the wood frame as is like the piece above or paint it white.
we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy and you're set. If only others got the message that it's that simple.
