Dandelion Season

I just finished up and sold my first dandelion dresser, wish, then it seemed like everyone wanted one. So in one week I did three of the same style dresser.
The first one the nice gal picked out what dresser she wanted, which happened to be one of my own, that has several looks.

 This is the original look from a couple of years ago.

Then to this for a couple of days. Just wasn't feeling it.
 To this which I loved, (I want to do another similar some day,
but I thought hey why not wreck something you like by distressing the hell out of it. Then I got this.

Not my favorite.
This gal stayed like this a while until my girls asked for a paper doll dresser. So I came up with this.

The black is even chalkboard paint, so they could color in the girl and the outfits.
So now my girls no longer need a dresser, my lovely client chose this dresser to be her very own dandelion dresser.

I replaced all the knobs with vintage pulls and glass knobs on the top. I did a home made turquoise with a white wash.
My third wanted something pretty close to my original, for her sweet babies nursery.
 This guy too, was a roadside rescue. He had a broken drawer and needed some minor repairs, but had pretty good and solid structure. So my awesome husband framed in the top and repaired the skirt on the bottom.

I replaced the old pulls with some pretty glass pulls.
Both ladies where very happy with their own Dandelion Dresser.


  1. You're amazing - a true artist ( and furniture is your canvas )
    Just beautiful !!!

  2. Absolutely adore each & every incarnation of that first dresser! Especially drooling over the slightly-psychedelic paisley version... Do you mind sharing how in the world you did that pattern? Please tell me it wasn't freehand, that would just be cruel, as my artistic ability tops out at tracing! =)

    And Suzann, above, said it perfectly. Furniture is your canvas! Just genius!

    1. thank you, I used a design and copied it for my overhead so the image was more precise. I want to create something along those lines again. Just waiting for the right piece. I appreciate your comments and taking time out to check out my little blog.

  3. I'm new to your blog! Love it! How do you transfer your patterns from somewhere like Graphics Fairy? I mean what is your method? And do you paint most of your designs with paint bruch? I see some of them you use chalk ink..Is there a way to private message you about some questions? (I'm new to replying to blogs)
