An Antique Dresser in Robin's Egg Blue

Happy February! Only one month until March, and march is when all the wonderful things happen. In March the clocks reset and the days get longer, the flea market starts back up, we get the first day of spring and St. Patrick's day. March is an awesome month. SO, we just need to buckle down and trudge through February.

        Here's a pretty antique mahogany dresser painted in robin's egg blue as a little taste of spring. I've paired it with forced forsythia branches from my garden. I sanded stained and sealed both the top and the drawer fronts to play up the gorgeous mahogany veneer. The drawer pulls are all original. I distressed it and finished it with a custom dark wax.

And the mirror is fully removable, so you can use the dresser with or without it!
