Emerson's Dresser

I found this beautiful dresser at our local MCC.
The top was in rough shape, but I love the style and all drawers etc. were working well.
Defenitely has potential!

It still has most of the original hardware which I love.

My client Emerson has purchased this for her room.
Emerson is five, so guess what color we went with?
Pink and black!
If the client is five, you can bet pink will be involved!

Annie Sloan Antoinette, Graphite, and light and dark wax.
Yumm, sounds like the perfect recipe to me!

Isn't she pretty?

Love the mix of knobs - all done in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

A little bit of damask drawer liner to finish the look.

Thanks for stopping by -
what's your favorite color combination right now?

  1. She is so pretty Elisa!!!
    I guess that's what you have been doing?? I ,iss your posts!
    I have been feeling pink lately, too! I painted a mirror white and pink on the weekend as well as an old white table! I also WROTE on the table, it looks great!
    So the perfect color combination right now is pink and old white!

  2. That came out so nice! Love the color combination!

  3. It looks like a different piece of furniture. I love the drawer lining that you used. Good job!!!

  4. Wow! This is beautiful and sure to please anyone at any age. Love the damask you lined the drawers with, the perfect touch. I just bought a sample pot of the pink and a quart of graphite. Lots of projects in my mind:-)

  5. Love the color contrasts! Simply beautiful!

    Blessings, Grace

  6. Love the knob mix! Emerson will adore it! The lining of the drawers adds a nice little punch!

  7. How beautiful! I love it -- perfect for a little girl. :-) My favorite color combination right now is yellow and gray!

  8. Wow--that turned out beautiful; love the lining of the drawers with the black and white print. Great job!

  11. Thanks for your visit to Pandora's Box and your sweet comment. This bureau turned out so cute - love it in two colors! And your last post is a hoot - about tearing down the shed - too funny! Enjoy the weekend!

  12. Elisa,
    The dresser is lovely! I found you on The Passionate Home website... you were doing an upholstery workshop there - I live in Vancouver and was thinking I'd love to try one of the Annie Sloan workshops. Have you done one? I'm glad to happen upon your blog! I'm following now via linky tools. Would love you to stop by sometime for a visit!

  13. That is soo pretty! The colour combo works very nicely!

  14. Hey Elisa, I am way older than Emerson and I 'd love to own that dresser.
    I made a visit to Gourmet Gallery and I spied a wooden letter holder that I needed to have to stash some of my card making supplies.

  15. Wow, that's gorgeous! I love how you've transformed this dresser. Lucky Emerson!
    Thanks so much for your recent visit to my blog. I hope you get spring weather soon!
