Vintage Bow Front Scroll Dresser

Hello! I hope you are all enjoying these Summer days, we sure are! I was consumed by the book 50 Shades Of Grey for at least 3 weeks, then Beach Trips, Camping, Company and Summer fun. 
Read on as I tell you why and how I FINALLY finished this dresser.

My mother in law gave me this Vintage Dresser just over a year ago! I LOVE the bow front it has.

I quickly had it sprayed an off white.....and then there it sat, for a year, in my bedroom beside my fireplace!

Clearly I work best under pressure......we moved, with an 8 day possession~GASP~ not ideal but it worked! I was in the new house for about 2 weeks, and of course I had everything set up, pictures on the wall etc. the only room I had not set up was my Ava Blake Creations room. 
I got a call to do an interview, with photos for our local magazine and fire sparked.....I had no real inventory to showcase because of the move and all, so now was the perfect time to renew this dresser!

I went to my trusted Graphics Fairy website and picked a Vintage Scroll. I printed the image out on transparency paper and used my vintage overhead projector to get the image on the dresser. I gave the dresser a grey wash over and dry brush painted the scroll on to it.

I just LOVE it!
 I LOVE the angel wings in the scroll,
I LOVE the color wash over the dresser,
I LOVE that it makes a perfect display case for me in my Creating room.

Super Love,


  1. I love this piece! Can you explain how you were able to paint the scroll on so perfectly? I would love to try to recreate for my daughter.
