My brother, who is a handyman, was given this dresser by a client. He called me and asked if I wanted. Of course I wanted it...I always want old furniture!!
I really liked the simplicity and size of the dresser. Though take a look at the knobs....I think 80's Puff Paints were used on them...not sure exactly what that design is?? Maybe a tulip, rose, or just plain scribble!!
I started by painting the dresser a Seafoam Green and then decided it needed a graphic. My best friend and I were talking about different room themes and she mentioned she liked beach cruisers and thought that it would be cute for a kids room. That got my mind thinking and I came up with this idea to paint on the dresser.
I penciled in the bike using the knob as the center for the wheel. Then I painted over the pencil with a charcoal gray paint.
For the "Enjoy the Ride" I used this tutorial from That's My Letter. She is really amazing when it comes to wood crafts.
I went over the whole piece with 220 grit sandpaper to age it and make it look more vintage.
I really enjoyed the whole process it was a nice change from the usual pieces that I do!
