Le Petite Numbered Dresser

I can't believe fall is upon us already.  It's my favorite season but it sure got here in a hurry. I have been in a race against the weather.  My days of painting in my garage are numbered.

A couple of weeks ago I found a cute petite dresser in the flea market at Collette's Antique Mall where I have my booth.

I spotted this little beauty as soon as I pulled into the parking lot.
It's made of pine & had a heavy shellac on it.  

Do you ever see a piece of furniture & immediately your brain starts picturing exactly how you want to paint it?  That's what happened with this dresser. 

I needed a small piece to try out my new paint on.  I am now a retailer for "The Vintage Farmhouse" chalk paint.  Have you ever heard of it?  It's made in Texas & comes in 17 beautiful colors.  You can check out their Facebook page here.  Tell Tresa "Dee from My Painted Stuff sent you."

I chose a color called "Old Scale". It's a true black, not a grey black like most chalk paint blacks.

How cute is that?!

The stripe is in a color called "Dairy Cream" & the Fleur Di Lis is in "Milk Pail".  I envisioned numbers on the drawer fronts the minute I seen this piece.

It needed a little pop of color, so I added the Fleur dis Lis at the last minute.  

Super cute in a bathroom or a child's room.

Here it is in my booth.

It compliments the vanity on the left, it's painted that "Milk Pail" color I mentioned earlier.  I'll be writing a post on that next time.

Now I need to get busy & finish up all the projects in my garage so I can park in there before the snow flies.  Check us out on Facebook to see what we are up to.  Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day,  Dee.
