NIfty Turquoise

I recently took on another craft project. I felt the girls room needed a dress/chest of some sort, but didn't want to put alot of $$ into it- since we are moving in a year and will soon after "redo" to a BIG GIRLS room. I used facebook to find a dresser a sweet couple we go to church with Amber and Gabe were getting rid of since they are fixing to move to Temple, TX. It was a steal- $25. This is what it looked like... After Ken sanded a few spots (thanks, babe!) I got busy- priming.

All done...

I used "nifty turquoise" and a chocolate brown glaze. Here is the color with 2 coats paint and one coat glaze. This was a real learning experience for me, but I am so happy with the results.

It is the perfect "POP" in the girls bedroom! :)

Soon- she will be complete when the other pink zebra print knobs arrive.

A special thanks to my sweet sorority sister Courtney Vassar for her tips, tricks, and the idea in general! Chi-O LOVE! She has a lil' cutie hootie- that is a little younger than Mattie and Hailey but just as cute! I secretly hope they will all be Chi-O's together some day in Martin!

If you are feeling brave- try it. Front door, furniture, bookcase- it really looks great.
