Miss Mustard Seed Boxwood Dresser with Striped Fabric drawers

I have fallen in love with Miss Mustard Seed Boxwood.  It is such a gorgeous green.  Green is one of my favorite colors...the other being red.

I was browsing through the Miss Mustard Seed colors and spied this Boxwood color.  Originally I was going to use it on a dresser with a specific set of hardware, but the colors just clashed.

I recently also made over this cute little dresser in the Boxwood as well.

The top was pretty roughed up...

I forgot to get pictures before I took it to my shop, and I couldn't get any decent ones...

That night I went to bed. and then the light-bulb went off.  That happens often...just as I am falling asleep the bright idea lights up my mind, and then I'm awake for hours thinking about what it's going to look like.

I purchased this lovely fabric a while back.  I just picked up a couple of yards, it was on sale, and I liked all of the colors.

This dresser I picked up at an auction.  It had a bamboo looking drawer, but it was flat not round.  I wasn't a fan for sure.  But, it had great bones and is on the original caster wheels.

I picked out these really cool knobs from D. Lawless Hardware.  I knew I wanted to do something fun with them...

Are you seeing where I am going?

I painted the dresser in boxwood green.

As the paint was drying I attached the fabric to the drawers using Mod Podge.

I also painted the sides with a cute little design.  And, one of my favorites is when you open the drawers the inside is painted in Benjamin Moore's 2015 Color of the Year Guilford Green.

I waxed the dresser with clear wax...

And...she is done...

I think she is fun and brings a nice touch with those knobs/pulls from D. Lawless on that funky and fun fabric.

Much love, peace & happiness ~

The FTC wants to make sure I let you know that D. Lawless provided the knobs to me. All opinions are my own, honest & accurately!
