Styling my own Painted Furniture

Hello Friends!
Yesterday I painted another dresser with tones of the oceans as my inspiration.

And since I can't keep it for myself, I thought it would be fun to show you a few accessories that I would put with it.

1. Vintage Swan Dish
2. Owl Lamp
3. Gold Mirrored Tray
4. Fresh Flowers in small vase
5. Black and White Rug

And here are some more shots of the Dresser

It's another one made by Basset

I really like the original pineapple drawer pulls

(you could make some kind of sponge bob reference here with the ocean and pineapples, but as a mom I think that show is the worst)

It's such a happy piece!

  1. Love, love, love that paint job!

  2. So.....could you talk us through the technique/paint you used for this piece? This finish is EXACTLY how I like my finished pieces to turn out, and I LOVE getting this look with bright colors.


    1. Thank you Rachael! Maybe I can come up with a tutorial soon, because there are several steps.. but I use minwax clear paste wax for my finish and layered two shades of blue

  3. Beautiful color! You did an amazing job... I'm now following you!!


    1. Thank you Suzie! So glad to have you follow :)
