This altered dresser I found on the Graphic 45 blog is freakin’ ADORABLE!
What a great decoration for a baby’s room. The color scheme is great, but could certainly be changed to match any color scheme.
And now it’s time to get inspired! Here we have an adorable and beautiful Little Darlings Altered Dresser by Arlene Cuevas. This would make such a wonderful gift or a piece of decor for a nursery or child’s room. You can keep sweet little keepsakes in the drawers too! There are so many great uses for this magical creation. Let your imagination take flight as you look at these great photos!
Here is what Arlene had to say about this precious work of art. “A friend of mine is expecting a baby boy this fall and I wanted to make something special to welcome him. Naturally, I reached for the Little Darlings paper collection! I found this miniature wooden dresser at a local craft store and thought how cute it would be to alter it. I primed the base with Gesso, then painted the entire dresser with buttermilk white acrylic paint. The edges are inked up with Ranger Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I painted the Staples Metal Buttons and Ornate door plate with acrylic paint and distressed them using a baby wipe, which is fun and easy to do (tutorial included.) The little picture frame is from the dollar section at my local craft store. I matted a Little Darlings chipboard frame to it and included a photo inside from the paper collection. The handmade flower was created using the Cherished paper and Spellbinders Rose creations die set. The Little Darlings paper collection is so full of inspiration. It’s fun to work with, that’s for sure!” -Arlene Cuevas
