Bicycle Dresser


Hello again friends.   Here in the PNW, Spring is in the air, (sorry to all dealing with record colds) but we have had unseasonably warm weather... (yes I know it won't last but one can hope and should at least enjoy)!
Sooo....

In honor of this spring like weather I thought I'd share the Bicycle dresser I finished a while ago.


It started as a cheap dresser that I picked up for $3.00.  Because it wasn't especially well built or even vintage, I felt very comfortable trying something new and a little bit different...
After all what did I have to lose??  Three dollars.  :)
Ha-Ha...Nice photography...you can see the tail end of my dog.  :)
So I painted the outside my favorite yellow and painted the drawers white..after removing the knobs of course.


I sketched the bike in pencil and the started painting using using an assortment of acrylic paints.


Outlining some of the flowers in black to make them pop.


So what do you think?  Wouldn't it be cute in a little girls room?

Well that's it for today...You have an awesome weekend!!
Denise
(I have an sick kiddo at home and the weekend off so I see more crafting in my near future.)  :)

As always I will be linking up to the many link party's on my sidebar.

    1. I'm using it in my office right now to hold my daughters extra diabetes supplies....but I agree with you it should be in a little girls room. :)
