OuI Oui, Rescued Dresser Turned FRENCH-Tastic!

I rescued this Dresser and gave it a FRENCH-tastic Makeover. Head on over and see the difference some paint makes.
Using a graphic from Karen - The Graphics Fairy and a friend who makes custom stencils I was able to transform this down and out dresser into something beautiful.  +Karen Watson http://arttisbeauty.blogspot.com/2014/02/oui-oui-rescued-dresser-turned-french.html
My finished rescued French-tastic dresser
the before I had sanded the top right away when I found it because it was so bad and then left it sit for a year...I just didn't know what I wanted to do.
this was on both sides lots of veneer missing. So I sanded it as level as I could and started painting.
A started with a custom blue mineral/chalk paint It was a blue green.
I decided I didn't want the dresser to be one color so I layered on another color Green on the fronts of the dresser. This is when things started coming together. I waxed and buffed the whole thing and got ready to add my new knobs
I had this great stencil from http://www.etsy.com/shop/MoreThanWordsVinyl?ref=si_shop&fb_source=message She made it custom for me from a graphic from Karen over at the GRAPHICS FAIRY
Once I started photographing I knew I couldn't let it go. This dresser is now in my home.
Its now in my living room. I fell so head over heals I couldn't let it go. #diy #rescuedfurniture.

    While I am not personally a fan of chalk paint, this is gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful. I would actually buy this and make a place for it in my house. Wonderful job.
