Before and After: Jeanette's Midnight Blue Dresser

Happy Halloween everyone!  I hope you're having a great day.  Are you dressing up your kiddies for some trick or treating?  Planning a quiet evening at home.  We're going to have a pretty low key day around here.  J is planning to carve a pumpkin and we'll be handing out treats to the kids in the neighborhood.  I did a bit of painting yesterday but I paid the price with another back flare up, so it's plenty of down time and relaxing for me. 

A while ago I finished a commission for my return client Jeanette.  Remember her Crisp White Table?  Well she brought me a low dresser a few weeks back, which she picked up yesterday.  It's a gorgeous, sturdy piece that was just begging for a Lather Creations spruce up!


Jeanette loved the colour scheme from the Blue Blossoms Table, so I replicated the colour and paper details on her dresser.  The rich cobalt blue (a Benjamin Moore mistint) is very dramatic and the blossom paper detailing (from Paper Source) and crystal knobs (from Lee Valley) add sparkle and charm!  I have a PIY Pointers prepared for you for the next day or so that takes you through the steps of adding the paper to the drawers.  Watch for it soon!







Have a lovely Sunday my friends and don't forget to tell me what kind of spooky things you're up to this Halloween!

  1. That is gorgeous. The paper and pulls give it a feminine flair where before it was all about business.
    I spent the evening making up little goody bags for our trick or treaters and carving an ubsurd number of pumpkins. They will be displayed on our friend's porch- where we will be handing out candy tonight and watching the premier of the Walking Dead on AMC.

  9. Very cute...I love how the dresser had the little indents just perfect for you to put your paper signature touch onto :)

    Halloween - we don't really do that here, most NZ'ers just see it as a piece over over-commercialised rubbish. That is not to say they don't try and peddle the stuff in the shops though, lol. Guy Fawkes is a wee bit more done here (Nov 5th) although we personally don't partake, as the kids are still too little to wait up until it is dark enough to let off fireworks....not getting dark here now till around 9pm.

    hey I noticed that we have almost the same amount of followers but of course mine have taken me a year and yours, a few months! I must try and join more linky parties :)

    Have a good day, hope your back gets better soon.
