Peacock Blue Eastlake Dresser

Eastlake painted dresser

First published two years ago, the Peacock Blue Eastlake dresser!  A Sunday Flashback

I am so excited to start working on this week’s favorite find and went with a color fit for this little gem – Corinth Blue from General Finishes.  I decided to highlight the details in gold which pairs well with this rich, bright blue. The paint was toned down to a gorgeous, deep hue with the application of General Finishes water based glaze, Burnt Umber.  It created depth and gave it a rich, aged patina.  I was pleasantly surprised to see it transform into a peacock blue! more here!

The Best of 2015 Countdown Begins!

Hello!  It’s great to be back to blogging after such a wonderful Christmas break.  We had temperatures in the 70’s which made it a very strange Christmas, indeed.  However it was wonderful as we were at the beach – perfect!

We only have a few more days left of 2015!  I always love to share my top 10 projects of the year and so, let the countdown begin 🙂 more here!

Autumnal Inspired Dresser Before & After

I mentioned before how the weather has finally broken in Maryland – whew!  We have cooler evenings and my kids even need jackets in the morning on the way to the bus.  I was in the mindset of fall when I decided to go with General Finishes Somerset Gold on this piece.

After spending an hour or so stripping the top, now comes the point where I need to decide which direction to take it (the best part).  Hmmmm…
