Channeling Charlie Brown

I finished my dresser today. I was having a hard time deciding between the Swedish inspired dresser or the chevron stripe dresser, but the chevron stripe won out.

Rather than paint the stripes on horizontally, I opted to paint them on vertically just to be a little different.

I think the old gal turned out all right.

She was pleasantly purple before.

But here she is now...channeling Charlie Brown. {I know it's asking a lot, but try to ignore the uber distracting pink walls with random branches. I swear I will paint them...hopefully very soon.

Bold white lines just didn't seem to fit her style, so I distressed them a little with a sanding block.

Just the right blend of vintage and modern. I think she'll be happy in her new home. I have a few things left to do in the room...painting, as you already noticed and changing out the light. But I am hoping to be ready for a full reveal pretty soon. So, stay tuned.
