The dresser is dressed!

As I've said before, I love painted furniture.  Painted, glazed distressed-they're all great-but I like decorative painting the most!  This dresser was my husband's grandparents.  For years, we used it as it was, stained walnut.  Then, I painted it black and stenciled it with grapes in a wicker basket.(sorry no pictures of before).  Well, boredom struck.(what's new?)  Harlequin has always intrigued me.  Actually, I am always inspired  by the stacks of Ballard Design catalog's I stockpile all over!  Although, this was my 1st piece painted in the harlequin style, I guarantee, it won't be the last! Take care-Gotta fly! Claire

  1. I’m a huge fan of harlequin so really love this! I want to paint the ceiling in my small butler’s pantry area with a harlequin pattern. I also have a couple of neat furniture pieces I need to work on.

  2. Soo cute I love harlequin. I've done walls like this and they looked great.

  3. I love this dresser (looks great in person, too), but I confess I never noticed the sweet blue bird painted on the side. Charming!

  4. Oh my goodness I am your polar opposite. The things in my house are so bland! It's nice to meet you. Thank you for stopping by my blog!

  5. That looks beautiful! You do a great job, that dresser could sell for a few thousand in a shop!

  6. I love Harlequin too but I could really get carried away with it! I have another piece I'm thinking of doing with creams and beiges-we'll see!


Thanks for your kind comments-love to hear from you!
