instafriday yellow dresser!

I've been transforming my master bedroom, taking grainy cell phone pics along the way ;) here is my chest of drawers before, during and after.

the dresser belonged to my great-grandma, and it was a little sad to see it getting painted over...but it had definitely seen better days, the top of it was so worn, there wasn't any stain left in some spots.
 i started off by sanding and priming it, and i also added some turquoise paint to some of the details so turquoise would show through the yellow

I kept the original handles because i think they looked beautiful, and also to pay homage to my great-grandma...these pics are also a sneak-peek to my new wall color...who doesn't love gray and yellow?
 when you look at these close-up pics you can see how the turquoise shows through to add a little color to the details.  I also antiqued it a bit to show the wood grain through

 as soon as we got the dresser completed we started to paint the walls!!
follow my blog to see the complete, funky, gray and yellow bedroom soon :)
{ordering a new quilt today! so excited!}
