Circus Themed Dresser

I always LOVE getting plain ol' dressers.....they make for the BEST graphics!!

OOPS, I forgot to take my before picture!!! I must have been to excited!
This is a little Antique Birch Dresser, natural wood and sweet!

I chalk painted it with van Gogh Fossil Paint Chalk White and distressed back to the original wood...a Scandinavian worn look.
 I then added the van Gogh french handwritten stencil faintly to it, and finished it off with the glass knobs! Really Pretty.

It sat here for a few weeks and then I changed my mind!!

My Alberta Dames Vintage Market was coming up and we went with a Vintage Circus Theme so I decided to recreate it.....again....

This time I made a custom mix of van Gogh colors to get this pale blue. I added the Vintage Ticket outline from Graphics Fairy, I also got the Fonts, and the elephant from Graphics Fairy.....I SERIOUSLY have super love goin on for that site!!
I LUV the pop of the red stars!
I kept the glass knobs for that little bit of bling....although I still have the blue knobs so it can be for either a girl or boys room!
But HOW FUN is this?? SO UNIQUE too!!!

What do you think??

Super Love for stopping by
