Whimsical Little Girl’s Dresser with Hand Painted Flowers

Whimsical Little Girl’s Dresser with Hand Painted Flowers

I’ve been inspired with color ever since we took our daughter to the Children’s Museum in Portland, Oregon years ago.  The museum was filled with vibrant colors and I couldn’t help but embrace the joy in my daughter’s eyes as she explored everything in sight.

Since I had rented homes with blah white walls in Hawaii, I couldn’t wait to finally break out some color when we purchase our first home.  To me, the entire property was a clean slate.  Our 100 year old home had lots of character already but my personality calls for color ~ lots of it!

I had a blast transforming her room with color (I’ll post about that later) and even though I lean toward more of the French look with my furniture finishes, I can’t help to wander back to that inner whimsy of doing uniquely painted children’s furniture.

When I picked up this dresser, I knew it would be a great size for a little girl’s room and would also be a great fit with all the storage for someone’s nursery.  With those thought in mind, I chose my colors and went to town..   Here’s what I came up with!

I started monkeying around with one of my favorite CeCe Caldwell’s combos ~ Destin Gulf and Spring Hill Greens.  With whimsy in mind, I started drafting out ideas on how to make this really unique.

I met with three experts to get their advice on the color for the focal flower.

The vote was unanimous – New Orlean’s Purple!
I sealed everything with a coat of clear wax.
I gave the top of the dresser and the knobs a super durable topcoat of CeCe Caldwell’s Satin Finish
She’s sitting pretty in the Shizzle Design booth at Not So Shabby waiting a little girls to come along and love.

Thanx for stopping by, hope you enjoyed a little detour from my usual style:)  For this project I used a combination of Destin Gulf Green, Spring Hill Green, New Orlean’s Purple, Traverse City Cherry mixed with Kissimmee Orange and Carolina Sun Yellow ~ I think that’s it:)  Explore all the colors of CeCe Caldwell’s Paints and get inspired by other projects here.  I carry a large supply of CeCe Caldwell Paints on our online Shizzle Shop here and in our Shizzle Design booth at Not So Shabby in downtown Zeeland here.  You can also keep up on all our newly painted designs.  Subscribe to our Blog, Like our Facebook Page or Pin away our pieces on Pinterest.  Have a great weekend, Shelly
