Rustic Beach House Chic Dresser

I'm back w/ a little more blue for you. Found this on CL and honestly it just looked more appealing in the pic but I was there and I don't like to disappoint so home it came along w/ an antique nightstand. These super nice people had a treasure trove of goodies in their basement. Unfortunately my car and garage can only handle so much. She just emailed me earlier to show me some of their finds they thought I might be interested in, love it!

Plain and so 70's . Talkin' shiny screaming bright orange and yellow floral kitchen wallpaper, Brady Bunch, Bee Gees kind of 70's. I love the Bee Gees mind you, and all things 70's minus the wallpaper.

Nope, no pulls on this guy either. Just plain dull.
Changed it up with  beachy blue paint left over from striping my kids bathroom. Added some white, pencil starfish that I bought on Ebay to use as faux pulls. Quite the deal compared to Michael's. Distressed the heck out of it and here it is ready for someone's beach house....

That is rally cute, it would be great for a beach home. Here in Orlando a lot of the vendors sell beach stuff as the snowbirds are always furnishing their winter homes. I hope you have broke the Mersman curse, I will let you know.

Hey there, girlie!

You make me laugh! Wouldn't a beach house be the best!

You had a great vision for this piece! I like the starfish and distressing! Oh, and I love that you openly admit to liking the Bee Gee's. Me too :)

Have a great night!

Now this is cute. So beachy/costal. Adding the starfish was such a fun idea! I'm really starting to love blue painted furniture. I just painted my small kitchen island blue. All that's left is the distressing and it will be ready to post. I'm off to look at your other before and afters!

Perfect for a beach house, or a cottage! Where do you sell your furniture? Not that I paint any, but probably should. I just love to see all the unique finishes bloggers come up with!

Would love for you to drop by this weekend and join Passion for Paint!

This looks so lovely. I look forward to you stopping by at My Dream Canvas:-)

Yep, I know you understand the whole mosaic process. I have pretty good luck selling my mosaics in my online store and then there is also a boutique in town that sells some. I have little luck at my antiques booth. Now, the Mersman table, still sitting there, My son is probably going to have to try and sell it at my estate sale LOL!
