A Handpainted Dresser by Somewhat Quirky Design

I think from the moment I found this dresser on the curb with a "FREE" sign on it I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. My inspiration photo had been on my Pinterest board for 2 years.
I used a bone inlay piece being sold online for $2700 to inspire the pattern. After I painted the entire piece in two coats of Chalk Paint(R) in Paloma. I made a mix of 3 Chalk Paint(R) to do the hand painting with.
I measured to find the center of each drawer and drew in the design with chalk.
Then I slowly, but surely, painted the whole thing.
I used three coats of wax. I wanted it to be shiny like real inlay furniture is.
I think it's beautiful!

    Wow! Bonus that is was free....we all love free, especially when it looks like it has good "bones". Great job on the intricate paint job. Not my style, but totally respect the design and all the hard work you put into it!
