Precious Cherub Dresser

Hello Hello!
Firstly I have to tell you that I'm uber proud of myself that I actually made my own blog header for my blog...I usually have a friend/computer guy who tries to do all that my creative brain wants to see, but that doesn't always work out! SO, after hours and 7 tries to get the pixels right, I DID it!! Now I can change it every week if I want to!! What do you think?

I'm starting to feel like I start all my posts with ......This one turned out Stunning!....But seriously......it really did!

Another week of the full out ~ Hands Clapping, Giddy Jig~ for real!!

This dresser was another rescue from the dump! Through good old world of mouth.....imagine in this digital age that still happens...good old talking face to face!?! Anyways this couple heard that I rescued some dingy furniture and magically transformed it into pure beauty! YUP, that's me! So, I met with them and loaded up my truck grinning from ear to ear!

I notice everyone is looking for the super detailed looking vintage furniture. Personally, I LOVE all vintage but the plain looking ones always make for a better graphic! I knew this one was going to be amazing!

OH NO! I cannot find the before pic!! I do have a pic of the dresser that came with this one...

This dresser came as a set with a highboy and this one shown. I split them up, I recreated the one in the picture to my version of an Apothecary Dresser (see other post). 
The one I'm going to show you in this post looked EXACTLY the same as this one.....repainted in this terrible brown, brass knobs and pulls! Just plain 'ol plain....but a highboy style! Can you envision it?


MAGNIFICENT now....



OK, for this one I painted it van Gogh, which is the name of this color from van Gogh Fossil Paint Collection. I then gave it a VGFP Mascara Black watered down wash over. Then I sat on the garage floor for approx 2 hours tracing out this "Darling Engraved Cherub With Frame" graphic from my trusted Graphics Fairy Website
After I took a few days off to do other projects, I finally came back to this one. 
It took me 7.5 hours in total to paint just the graphic on this one....LOTS of detail as you can see!!! Once I was finished with the graphic I gave the whole dresser a VGFP Chalk White watered down wash over. I really wanted that old antique look. it turned out just as I wanted it to.
~HAPPY JIG, Backflip, AND Summersault~

Here is a picture of the wash...


 It's really hard to see in pictures, but you can kinda see the Grey-ish and then White wash, it looks way more blended in person! You get the idea!



Here is a pic of the Dresser from the side! Tee Hee this makes me seriously giddy with delight! I CANNOT get enough of these scroll-y type graphics!



Here are the glass knobs I chose for the dresser, I didn't want to hide a centimetre of this graphic!



I really hope you all enjoyed this one! Currently....it's one of my all time favorites!

Thanks for stopping by!

Super Love,
Jenny
