fUnKY GrEEn dResSer

A few weeks ago I picked a dresser up for $22 from the thrift store where "creepy guy who follows me around" works. I have to say that the best thing about having a stalker is that you can get furniture for really good prices! Anywho, I knew I wanted to go blue or green as I definitely saw this as a dresser for a boy or in a funky city apartment. I picked a color that Scott refers to as "baby poop green". Really I thought it was a nice earthy color. Well, those colors on the lid can be quite deceiving cause this paint came out bright green. No problemo, a heavy dose of walnut stain and here it is

Its not my all time fave but it'll do. I think if I could go back, I would have gone with the blue. Oh well, I'm sure it will find a loving home = )

  1. it came out cute and will be just right in the perfect home! i love the shape of it and the scalloped skirt!

  2. I am laughing about the creepy guy...and I love that you use his creepiness to work for you! Way to score a great piece at a great price!

  3. I love this piece! It is so unique. I bet the bright green looked good too...Really like you you antiqued it with the stain...This piece is totally NYC apartment...

    Hate creepy guys....You just gave me the heebie jeebies. You better get a good price after having to deal with a creep...

    Take care,

  4. Cute dresser! Too bad I don't have a need for one... Creepy guy can be tolerated if he keeps getting you these gems. ;)


  5. I live in Pasadena so now I'm curious as to which "creepy" guy at what thrift store because there are a few that come to mind. I love the color of the dresser. I just ordered a paint sample in a similar color and I can't wait for it to get here!

  6. sorry to comment so late...not sure how I missed this! Soprano guy following you around again? Bright green is better then baby poop green :-) I love the way it turned out!
