I mentioned in a previous post that I'd found a chest of drawers on the side of the road. Coming back from the beach I saw it, legs in the air and drawers strewn across someone's front yard, and thought, she's perfect! When you're learning to paint furniture, what's better to work on than a free dresser! At some stage she must have had a mirror attached to the top, given the shape of her back legs, so I'll keep my eyes open for a replacement.
As I'm sure I probably would have done given the chance as a teenager, the dressers' previous owner had painted her name all over. Including on the inside back of the frame. Hence we're calling her Jacqueline.
I've had these two gorgeous dressers pinned on pinterest forever. I waivered, but in the end decided to go with my original inspiration.
I was all fired up to finish the dresser a few weeks or so ago, when I realised that I had thrown away the drawer pulls. THROWN AWAY VINTAGE DRAWER PULLS. I spent a few days kicking myself, and then thank goodness, found some others on the net. (I am still kicking myself, but I will get over it!)
Here she is...
Emma is happy and so am I. She has some... ahem... blemishes, but we'll look past those won't we! So that gets the ball rolling for Emma's room - hooray!
