BIG & Chunky 80's Dresser Re-Creation #2

I FOUND another one.... This is Big and Chunky 80's dresser Re-Creation #2. I wish I could find the waterbed to go with it!!
IN THE NAME OF SUMMER....This one I chalk painted with van Gogh Chalk White...who doesn't LOVE a crisp White?! I also covered this mirror with pieces of spruce. I washed the spruce with a beachy blue color.
The mirror gives it that perfect nautical feel!
I also painted the drawer sides in the same mind always has to balance in ways like that!
Here is the before and after together!

Bring on the beach!!!!

    I bought, & stained one a cherry color, to match my antique bedroom furniture, years back. I can't come up with a solid color to paint it? White washing it, would make it the "elephant in the room". My room is, French Romantic. I have to do something! I hate how it is. Any ideas out there? I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Only other idea? Ditch the mirror & center draws. Turn into a large desk etc. Thanks 🙂

    Oh husband just brought one of these home.....thanks for the inspiration....I have to admit until I saw yours, I was at a loss and that usually doesnt happen to me. I almost always see through all of the ugly to what it will become...this one had me drawing a blank...again thank you for the inspiration and a job definitely well done!!!!
