Eloise Style Dresser

I just love doing little girls bedroom furniture.  

Most recently I did an "Eloise" style piece for a client.  To be quite honest, it was my first attempt at striping.  Thanks to a little help by the new Scotch Blue tape with Edgelock it worked out quite nicely.

The client wanted a pink and white striped chest for her little girls room just like at the Eloise Store.


She picked out this dresser from my inventory.


I painted the dresser completely in Rustoleum Heirloom white, then waited a few days to make sure the paint was completely dry.  The next step was to start the taping process.  I did not measure because I like the randomness of imperfection. I then painted the dresser with Rustoleum Raspberry.


I carefully pulled off the tape and finished it off with some knobs the client picked up from Van Dykes.



The sides are striped too


and I even finished it off by lining the drawers with a pretty paper.


DON'T FORGET TO LINK UP TO THIS WEEKS FURNITURE FRIDAY.
