|However, I did take the liberty to add a big butterfly overlapping some of the drawers and curling around the side so it wasn't totally predictable. Can't have predictable furniture, now can we? What I am talking about. I do predictable all the time.|
|Sorry for the photo quality. Not sure what went wrong. And since this is already at home in Ella's cute "new" bedroom, I can't retake these shots!|
|I cut the butterfly out of paper and traced around it with pencil onto the drawers and then just free handed the rest in. Pretty simple. The flowers were a stencil that I bought at JoAnn's. I went over the top and front of the dresser with Polyacrylic so it would be more durable, but as I was doing this on the drawers, I noticed when I brushed it over the stenciled flowers too much the paint was "wiping" off. Ugh! Never had that happen before... anyone else? That means I decided not to poly over the quote as I was afraid the letters would smear. Hopefully her brother doesn't decide to get too rough and tumble over there... heh heh... :)|
Oh but the best part? When we delivered it, they fed us steaks fresh off the grill, delicious potatoes, corn, and fruit. Topped with some mean ping pong games. Great night!
