Pretty Blue Lady


My favorite piece of furniture that I have transformed is this little blue number from a local auction house. She was so pretty when I finished her, that I had a hard time letting her go. Her details were so beautiful. If only I had the room to keep her I would have. She does have a new home now as a jewelry and accessory armoire. I know her new owner adores her, but I still do have seller's remorse.

She was painted a baby blue then glazed in a chocolate brown to show off her gorgeous details. I finished her off inside with the same chocolate brown to really make her sing.






Carved detailing...








Artful top hat...








Beautiful oval glass knobs original to the piece...
















Drawer detailing....











and her sexy, sexy legs.









reuse. repurpose. reinvent
