It’s always great when you can bring something old to life again. Our son and daughter in law brought over a dresser so I could finish it for our grandaughter Owyn. While it was a beautiful dresser as it was, it just needed some updating.
The colours turquoise and purple were requested for Owyn’s room. I love this colour combo! I used ASCP in Florence and mixed a custom purple for the drawers. Once it was finished I just thought it needed something more. After all it was for Owyn!! I found these great stencils that give such an important message to any young person, that is to “dream, believe and inspire”. The added touch of Old White to the dresser brought it to life! Add some bling with glass knobs and she was done.
When I took pictures of the dresser I sat a very special teddy bear on top! My Nanny made him for my son Tyler when he was a baby. I have him for safe keeping…for now…
How wonderful is it that we can pass old treasures down…if not a teddy bear , a great little dresser made especially for Owyn will do. The dresser had come from Owyn’s great grandmother as well. Treasures to keep!
