Painted dresser

Hi people! Wow, it has been so long since I last posted, google has changed their posting tools. I am a bad blogger.

But I've still been doing a lot of crafting for my new place.

I got this little dresser/nightstand thing from a friend - it was just plain wood, and boxy. I thought it would a great thing to try painting. I've been enamored of decorate painting on dressers since this picture by Laura Gunn. Hers is nicer but she's a professional painter or whatever.

I used a bunch of house paint samples that I had lying around, and I painted it on my new patio:

It goes great in my aqua-red-white-gold office.

(This picture is awful. There is not enough light in this room yet, so I had to use a flash. Funny story: when I moved, I somehow lost the plates that hold a pair of wall sconces that I planned to put in this room. I keep hoping they'll show up, so I haven't bought new lights. But they haven't shown up. And it is dark. SIGH. )

I put in some antique blue milk glass knobs. Again terrible picture. So dark. But trust me they are adorable?

Please send me some sconce-wall-plate finding vibes, and I'll try to post more stuff!!
