Reader Ravamp: Turquoise Treat

My wonderful email pen-pal Kelsey over at Fabulously Flawed has just revamped the cutest dresser. She has a little baby girl named Layla on the way, so she wanted to create something unique and fun for her soon to be nursery. Kelsey scored this amazing dresser on craigslist for FREE... yes FREE! She got to work and did an amazing paint technique to make this dresser look FAB! I love it, and want it in my own house. I might just steal her idea. She watered down a deep torquoise paint and applied it to the dresser so that the wood still showed through a bit. Then with a "dry" brush applied a lighter shade to give it some dimension. She updated the drawer pulls with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint for a brand new look. Great job Kelsey.To read exactly how she did it, colors and all check out her post here.
