Painted Dresser in Bedroom

Hello everyone!

How was your weekend?  Mine seemed to go by fast. We've been enjoying some nice weather here in GA and have actually broken out the jackets at night! 

Last week, I worked on something I thought I'd share with you today.
 
You may recall I moved the trumeau mirror out of my master bedroom and into the family room.  So, that left me with an empty space on the wall to fill.  I have a collection of floral still life paintings in my bedroom and bathroom.  I decided to move one of them where the mirror used to be. And as a result of doing that, I decided the dresser should be painted white to match it better.
 
 
 
I like how much lighter it looks now! 
 

I decided to change up the vignette on top of it too.  My purple orchid and a dainty rose patterned dish along with some Rachel Ashwell fabric samples fill the top of it.
 


Remember the leaning mirror that I once had in the family room?  Well, that moved  back in here where it belonged. 
 
 
Much better, don't you think?  I really missed it not being in here!
 
Across from the bed, is a chair and dresser.  Beside the dresser, I sort of created a gallery wall with some of the other floral paintings that I have. 
 

 
I have had these for a very long time and am glad that they work in my bedroom so well.
 


Here is a full view of the room as you enter.
 
 

 
 
So, now I have replaced the empty areas that were once here from shopping in one room to fill another.  Or at least until next time............
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Kelly, you always do such nice work that I'm sure you didn't even leave a blank spot in the room that you stole from. Paintings are beautiful and I really love the painted chest. Can't wait to see where it goes next.. I can see the book now, "The Travels of a Painted Chest".. Happy Sunday..Judy

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I love the fabric that you have draping down by your headboard what and how did you do that? Just love it!
You did a great job on the dresser, now you make me want to finish my bedroom.lol

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

love how the chest turned out...thinking that the bed is next~! lol
seriously the painting just takes on a life of its own!

Gee Singh Newbanks said...

AAAhhh, luv the new look.
My bed is almost identical to yours :-) I am thinking of painting it white (??) not quite sure as yet. The room was done in a Tuscan theme ( entire house was) and we are in the process of reverting back to a softer French Country, so my leaning mirror is gold... soon to be a flat white with a nice soft coat of wax!
Thanks for the inspiration!
Cheers, Gee

I really like what you have done, Kelly. I love the contrast of the white dresser and framed picture next to the dark bed. I all looks great.

Hugs,
