Ok, so it's been way to long since I've been on here and shared some new pieces.   This piece I absolutely fell in love with and was hard to let go. But if I kept every single piece of furniture I did my house would be busting at the seems! Some day when I have a larger house (oh I can't wait!)  I will be able to showcase so many more transformations.    

I knew I had a photo shoot coming up and decided this would be the perfect piece to transform. It's been sitting in my garage for a couple of months, just waiting to look happy again :)   I went back and forth many times about what color she should be.  Then I found this inspiration pic of a light minty green dresser and I knew that was the color.  Especially with her shape and curves, I wanted a feminine touch, of course I had some Anthropholgie knobs to finish the look.  So that store is addicting, but it always give me a good excuse to go in there, my guilty pleasure :)    

So once again, I played mixologist and created the perfect mint green I was going for.  I have a gazillion cans of paint in my garage so it's not hard to create colors. 

I had a vision in my head of how I wanted this photo shoot to go and the look I was going for, I think it worked out perfectly!   Here are a couple amazing pics by Andrea Gallagher of Andrea Gallagher Photography. More pics to follow another day.   Check out her website in my Favorite Blogs, she's amazing and so talented!   I captured my own picture of her in action!!

Love it! The dresser looks like it is the perfect amount of green and blue. Great job!
