Girly Chevron Dresser

Oh boy… I should not try to be such an over achiever.  lol. I get bored just painting things and distressing and waxing and painting and staining.  So I got this wild hair up my derriere to paint my first chevron pattern onto this cute little dresser that belonged to my sister 23 years ago.  Well that was a total cluster.  It took me forever to figure out how to measure the tape and get it all zigging and zagging in the right direction.  And then when I finally got it right I had to do the second row!  Trying to get the second row to line up perfectly to the first row…. oh no.  No no no.  It was bad ju ju.  But here is how it turned out and I think it’s super cute.  I distressed it a tiny bit around the drawers too and used my jute once again to cover the knobs.

Now if it would only sell.  I always worry about doing something that I consider a niche type feel because it will take the right person looking for pink, white and grey and chevron etc…  But for now it looks fabulous sitting in my living room with my brown tobacco leather sofa’s lol.

I love it! It'd be perfect for a nursery or girls room. :) I have that problem too, that and I'm just getting started so I have zero clients. Haha.

That had to be a job getting the chevrons right - but it looks great and I bet fabulous w/your sofa. There will be a someone who'll buy it and it'll be just what they were looking for. Love your header photo and enjoyed reading your profile. I especially like the last sentence. That's great! Came by way of Time Travel Thursdays. Enjoyed my visit. Thanks, Jenn
