Furniture Friday #5

Good day all.  Welcome to another edition of Furniture Friday.  I've been working on doing some promoting this week for our shop and our blog, but other than that its the same ole.  We picked up these two wonderful furniture pieces this week that were originally a set, but Elaine needed one of them, it was the perfect size for her, so we decided to split them up.  I lovedthe lines of these dressers.  Here is what hers looked like before.

and here is what it looks like now.

Isn't it purrr...deeee?
It looks fab in her bedrrom.  She used a two tone technique with both gold and silver.  Gives her room more of a glam vibe. 

Here is it's match, the 6 drawer version before.

I used a Tiffany Blue with a metallic glaze to give it a bit of shimmer.  I love the way this dresser turned out.

If I didn't already have my red wrapping paper dresser in my bedroom, I might just keep it myself.  
See you tomorrow for weekend features.



As you can see we're partying all week long. I probably need to go to link party rehab.  Oh well,  grab a martini and join us....Monica










  1. Oh my stars...this is amazing. Both dressers are gorgeous...but I especially love that sheen on the Tiffany one. And the paper inside is perfect. I'm swooning over this piece!! Would be delighted for you to link up with us over at Mop It Up Mondays (at i should be mopping the floor):

    Have a great week!

  2. Wow! Fabulous work! I have never tried to refinish furniture, though it looks fun! I am your newest follower and I would love it if you stopped by sometime to say, "Hi"!

  3. Wow! I'm in awe of the chest of drawers, and as well as the dresser. Both look amazing! I would never have thought to use a glaze like that. I'm definitely going to think about that the next time I re-do furniture!
