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
