Giving a Furniture Piece a Little Extra "oomph"

26K Views
This months was the theme "icing on the cake" and I am a gal that loves to do more then just paint furniture. I feel like they are my way to bring out my creative vision. This piece had a little bit of everything from changing its size, adding color, beautiful hardware from D. Lawless Hardware and the "icing" was adding some beautiful paper onto the drawer fronts.
Time: 3 Days Difficulty: Medium

The finished piece! I cut her legs down, painted the base with Old Fashion Milk Paint in Driftwood and added some beautiful floral paper.

In the middle of the project I wasnt sure if I wanted all the drawer faces to have paper or not so I took a quick progress photo and stared at it awhile to help me make my decision. Which I quickly decided to drive in and paper all the drawers, the paper was too pretty not to use as the main focal point.
