Lula's Dresser

My mother is amazing with furniture. Not to mention, she has great taste. She decided to take a dresser that she found and create a piece of shabby chic art as Tallulah's first piece of furniture. 

For those of you who do not know, Wikipedia defines shabby chic as "a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their age and signs of wear and tear or new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, minimalistic, and feminine feel is emphasized to differentiate it from regular vintage decor; hence the "chic" in the name".

This is the piece she started out with....

And this was the end product....

Perfect for the whimsical bedroom that I envision for my "nugget" when she finally has a room of her own. :)
