Antoinette and Coco Sitting In A Tree

These are a match made in heaven!  I have been horribly sick for the past week and haven’t done much of anything other than lay in bed but I did make time to refinish my dresser for my youngest daughters room.  This was not at all the direction I thought I was going with this room but when I went to pick up my Antoinette I bought some Coco for another project and then the light bulb went on.  I’m so pleased with this how this turned out that I have also done her little table and chairs which I will post later and I plan to do her desk to match as well.

I used my new silver gilding wax for the details and painted the handles Coco and gilded those as well.  I absolutely LOVE the gilding wax!  I’m not keeping these black knobs, they were on the dresser when it was in my room but I haven’t replaced them yet.  I think I’m going to get some smaller clear crystal ones.

I used a 3/1 ratio of the Antoinette on the drawers and then full strength in the centers.

Here is a before and after of the dresser…

I like the paint treatment on your dresser very much.
It reminds me of a piece of Wedgwood porcelain.

Wow Sommer! You did a beautiful job on that chest! I love it! The details really pop now and the colors you chose are great. I'm visiting from show & tell Saturday. Have a good one.
