Meet Theodor, the dresser

Meet Theodor.

Kind of a cute little guy, but I thought he could use some sprucing up.  I hope you can see I was inspired by Theodor Geisel, Dr. Seuss himself.

This piece seemed suited for a younger person, so I just went with it.  I've always thought Dr. Seuss was brilliant and of course, timeless.

His work transcends generations and I'm proud to create something that can be enjoyed by another generation.

Of course I had to add a little "peek-a-boo" fun to the inside drawers.

I distressed the edges just a wee bit to show the black from the original piece.  The quote is from one of my favorite books, "Oh, The Places You'll Go".  Such wise words.

I love quotes.  And I love painting furniture.  Just the perfect marriage for me.

Thanks for reading,
