Here we are. Wednesday night already. Today has been a busy day of foraging treasures in the rain. And sun. I will post some highlights of the vintage finds soon.
Anywho, I’ve wanted to get this before & after up for the last 24 hours. Better late than never.
Take a look-see at this stunner.
I’m really happy with how she turned out. The before is not too shabby. Just a little blah, in my opinion.
However, I do really love the original hardware and wanted it to pop.
All violet and pretty on the outside. Painted with ASCP Old Violet and ever so slightly distressed.
And warm Old White on the inside with a hint of dark wax to age it.
And bottom. I think the curves are the best part. The violet seems to highlight it.
This little lady is already up for sale on etsy.
P.S. You just got a sneak peek of BRICK & MORTAR!

I tried to leave a comment… don’t think it went through. Anway, I just love the combination of elegance and whimsy (the violet color is great). Great job!! Did you happen to sand before painting? I’m asking because I’m having trouble with paint adhesion on my most recent dresser project. Thanks!
Martha – Thanks! I really love this color combination too. I had no issues with adhesion and I did not sand. I hate sanding! I read about issues with adhesion this week. Was that on your blog? Can’t remember but I haven’t had issues with that.
Yeah. It might have been on my most recent post. It seems as though some have problems and others don’t. I can’t make heads or tails of it and I’m like you, no sanding please! Anyway, I always enjoy your posts. Thanks!!!
How. Cute!!! 😀 I love the colors you chose, and I love that it is two-tones. Brilliant project! I bet it has already sold.
beautiful! i haven’t seen the violet yet and i’m loving this combo!
gorgeous! i love that shade of blue!
Love the violet. Love the combo of the two colors, works well with each other, Great Job!
I love the curves too! And what a pretty color combination!
