A few painted pieces

I like to paint furniture...there I said it.  Even more than that I like to make new things.  Today I wanted to share with you a few painted pieces I have done recently.  I have a dresser, buffet, and china cabinet to show you.  I hope you like them.

Here is a dresser before without the drawers.  I know, the photo is terrible, but you get the idea.

After painting it grey I traced an image on and painted it in to add a little something.
This buffet was gorgeous before, but unfortunately was painted wrong.  I literally pealed the paint of the top by hand!

Here is the after.  I just love these pieces and am so glad I finally had a chance to work on one.  I just wish I had somewhere to put it!

I'm not sure how exactly to explain this one.  It had red, gold, black, shimmer...and sticky tape all over.

I used a pretty light aqua green then dry brushed it over with a more turquoise blue.  I also dry brushed the edges and appliques with white. 

I love this one.  It's such a unique piece.  I haven't seen one with a top shaped like that before, have you?

Happy painting!
