Feeling Blue

Feeling blue? As in the color OR the mood?  I can help with both.  First of all, if you like the hue of blue, you will love these blue dresser makeovers.  If you are feeling blue, then they should cheer you up too, because who doesn’t love a good before and after?  Heck, I couldn’t tear myself away from the TV today when my local news station was giving some lady a new haircut.  It must have been a really slow news day, now that I think about that.

First one from Lindsey and her mother at This Delightful Life, who redid this Draper-esque cabinet in a mixture of Annie Sloan Chalk Paints. Check out her blog for a glimpse at what she did with the inside, if the word “Draper-esque” wasn’t a big enough clue.

And Kaylor picked the absolutely perfect blend of colors for this old dresser, the blue, the white, the brass pulls, the stained top, she’s gorgeous!

TIP OF THE DAY: if you find a quality old dresser like this, chances are the pulls are real brass. Such was the case here.  Kaylor didn’t paint the pulls at all.  She simply polished them up, and was rewarded with mega-shine!

Learn more about how to identify real brass on her blog Fisherman’s Wife Furniture.
