{Furniture Makeover} Hand Painted Dresser

This piece of furniture definitely makes a statement. Originally I was just going to paint this with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Flow Blue and call it done but when I finished painting it I felt it was just too boring and needed a little bit more personality. I always strive to create one of a kind pieces that have something unique or special about them and this one needed a little something to get it there. So I got onto Pinterest and did some searching…..I knew I wanted to do a white design to tie in with the knobs and I came across a wall decal design I liked and thought would look lovely flowing over the piece but not completely covering it. I liked the idea of an asymmetrical design. So using the design as inspiration I free handed with chalk over the piece and used MMSMP in Linen to paint on the floral design.

I spent about 3 hours hand painting the whole design……and it finally had that something special it needed. I know someone will fall in love with this piece.
