Caribbean Blue - Statement Chest of Drawers

Well, if you read my last post, I'm still in HOLIDAY mode!  Still craving lots of sunny colour - I just finished this lovely little chest of drawers and I've booked a week away (hurruh!!) but more about that later...


Here's the before pic.  In really nice condition (apart from the scratches) and the handles are OK, but I wanted to make this a statement piece.


Once I got into the painting, I sanded and filled the holes for the drawer pulls and replaced them with these STUNNING stag heads.


Lots of comments from customers.


Actually - lots of comments about this colour generally! Here's a pic of one of my customers - she loves this colour blue and often wears it :-)


The chest of drawers was created using Antique Turquoise chalk paint, clear wax and gilding.


It sold straight away, and guess what?  My customer wasn't that keen on the handles, so they've been changed to the look she prefers.  There will be a RETURN of stag head very soon!!



So which handles do you prefer?  Stag heads or black ceramic pumpkins??
