A Whimsical Makeover: The Paloma Dresser Edition

This is the lovely dresser I purchased recently at a local store. It was a good price and everything worked well. The only issue was the knobs but after a quick trip to ETSY, I found exactly what I needed. If you are an Annie Sloan Paint Lover...I bet you are drooling over the detail piece. My words were "That will really show off the paint!" 

I have been interested in branching out with colors so I chose Paloma to lighten this baby up!  This dresser almost gave me an ulcer but now that it is done...I will forgive it.  I might be obsessed with this dresser now. It is just so pretty. :)

 My wonderful husband attached the hardware before I got home from school today. Such a nice guy. He also decided to do the staging. I hope you like it. ;)

I love the way this paint shadows and textures. It adds so much dimension to the piece.

Thanks for checking in.
