We Doed It, Blued It

Mike willingly put off the open hutch make over by one more day to complete this little antique dresser in blue. Let me know what you think!
Before
After

I am very happy with the results. We had paint called Liquid Blue so to save on costs Mike adjusted the color. He used 1/3 part blue and 2/3 white and this is the result. We slightly distressed it and used the original hardware. I love the legs on this piece. It came with casters but we choose not to put them back on at this time because the dresser is quite tall anyway.

I think every home needs a happy, cheerful, fresh blue dresser!

Mike starts on the open hutch today. We are hoping to have it completed by morning and available to anyone interested.

Happy Monday!

The color is so eye-catching. I've found myself drawn to aqua blue lately. I'd love to do a similar project. Well done.
