Is something inspiring you lately? 

Ornate Union Jack painted dresser.  Love the metallics!  What a great way to bring elegance and high design into a nursery - pair with more modern linens, sharp, graphic artwork, and crisp accessories.

I've seen this photo or something very similar before. It's always stayed in my mind.
I was on CL the other day and a chest showed up in just the same shape.
It has three drawers instead of the two. It also has a very ugly paint job, so, I've got my work cut out for me on this project.
I've started off by removing the handles and paining them gold. Next came a light
sanding of the front of the chest.

I'm hoping to start painting this week. The Union Jack looks easy to 
paint, but after my research it's a little bit harder than I expected.

Wish me luck!!!



  1. YOU CAN DO IT. Great idea…I'm not that great at painting.

    1. Thanks Mary Ann. I've started! I'm sitting here now with my lap top taking a break! Tomorrow I will be at the finishing line. So far I'm liking it!
