Catch The Wave: Meet Beachy Belinda!

A little warm sunshine this weekend and now I am finding myself with a touch of spring fever!  I am counting down the days until vacation, beginning to clean closets and so on. 
I have the bug! 
I am fairly certain that was the overwhelming feeling I had when developing my vision for this dresser. 
I picked up this dresser the other day – it is a solid piece with straight lines and a ton of potential. 
I love those old dressers! 
Here is a bit of what the before looked like:

Sorry…I started before I got any really good pics.
I was excited – what can I say?

Groovy hardware, huh?
That went straight to the trash.
 Time for a new look!
Meet Beachy Belinda!
She had a very sucessful makeover.
I love her new look!

As if waves battered her all day long and
weathered her stripes.
Beachy and sweet.
I can almost smell the suntan lotion.

  6. I love what you’ve done to the dresser, it looks amazing! especially love the top :)

  7. Aw, I would have kept the old hardware. On the right piece and some paint, that probably could have looked modern. Not right for the look you were going for. I love the soft, coastal cottage look you went for. I’m also envious you got the lines so straight! You did a great job on both the furniture and showing it off.

    Thanks so much for linking up to my party! I always love seeing pretty things. Hope you’ll come again Stacey.
