Meet Amelia, the dresser

Meet Amelia.

Looking kind of drab until she received the makeover that uncovered her true passion. (Ugh - just caught the blur that must have been on my lens.)

Decided to name this piece after Lady Lindy, Amelia Earhart.  I can only imagine she would be proud to display this piece in her home.  ;)

I added a bit of trim to the top and bottom to give it a bit more definition.

I usually hand paint the silhouette over the base coat, but because the red is highly pigmented, the white plane was painted in the negative space.  Took lots of coats but it was worth it.

Gotta love friends who pick up furniture from the side of the road knowing you will welcome it into your garage.  :)  Thanks Tina!

I hope this dresser makes it's way into a child's room and reminds them to soar.

Have a fabulous day,
