Custom Blue Chest of Drawers (starry night blue) Makeover

Its Makeover Monday again my Beauties!
I am so excited about this one.
As soon as I started working on it
I knew I wouldn't be able to let it go.

When I picked up the dresser off of Craiglist
it looked like this. 
It was pretty beat up and had some mildew and mold on the outside.
It also had some areas where the previous owners may have been over zealous with sanding 
of the years.
When I opened up the dresser you 
could see the the dresser had been painted and stripped a couple of times.

The top had also been overly LOVED...
So it was time to work some magic.
I mixed up a custom blue that I love.
When I started painting it I instantly was reminded of VanGoghs 
starry night painting. 
I always loved his Blues.
 When the paint was dry I waxed and buffed the whole piece.
 As I was trying to decide on hardware I decided that a nice crisp gold would accent the piece 
with the blue so I just grabbed my gold spray paint and painted them.
When they were dry I popped them back on.
As I said in the beginning, I knew I would not be able to let it go.
It is now sitting in my sons room 
where I can go in and look at it.
He was so excited to get a new dresser.
Hopefully he will cherish it for years to come.
Well thats it for todays makeover.
I have finished the bathroom remodel,
but trying to photograph that space has become my nemesis.
Such a small space to try to photograph.
Hopefully I will get those done this week.
Wish me luck.
Until next time,
Go make someones day BEAUTIFUL!
