  1. This is actually super similar to emmy’s new dresser! Same finish and shape to start. Love the colors and LOVE the gold touch- glamorous and chic!

    1. Emmy’s is a very high dresser though right? You know what really bugs me is that I still had to pay for it. LOL I’m a cheapo but it was in such bad shape that I think Salvation Army still asks too much for it πŸ˜‰

  2. What?! I was just going to comment on how beautiful your dresser looks and then I see that I won!!! Whoo Hoo!! Beautiful job!! I love gold and the vinyl sticker!

    1. Thanks Darnetha, you know I have to touch everything with my gold fingers πŸ˜‰

    1. I love the hearts too and have been wanting to use them for a while now. Thanks!

  3. I always love to see how people redo a piece of furniture. This is gorgeous!

    1. I love the Paloma too. Originally I wanted to do a darker blue.
      Thanks Kelly!

  4. I love it! Definitely a “paint it” πŸ™‚ I can’t believe something so icky became something soooo lovely! And the gold heart is the perfect finishing touch!

  5. Oh, I love this, Julia! Your styling is just perfection. (Cute little whale quote!)

  6. Julia, it looks incredible! and the gold accents, you know how to win a gal over πŸ˜›

    1. I know how much you love gold just like me! I just can’t keep myself from turning something gold LOL

    1. Thanks Sarah, I’d love to use the dresser in my daughter’s room now because she thinks it’s cute too. Well maybe if it doesn’t sell πŸ˜‰

  7. Love this Julia!! I couldn’t figure out if the hearts were real or photoshop:) ha!! I like them though. The dresser is simple and elegant and right up my alley! Great job, as always!!

    1. No Photoshop πŸ˜‰ just wall decals. I’m addicted to wall vinyl. It’s one of the best things ever invented.
      Have a great weekend.

    1. It totally is kind of art deco. Maybe I should change the title to modern oak art deco dresser πŸ˜‰ LOL and thanks Crystal!

  8. Julia I really want to know about what you did to the inside of the drawers. Is it a drawer liner? Gift wrap? Where did you get it? I need aswers girl! LOL!

    1. Hi Geesha, it is contact paper which I found at HomeGoods. I love that stuff because every time I used wrapping paper and decoupage I had bubbles. I totally forgot to mention it in my blog post πŸ˜‰

    1. My daughter wants the gold hearts in her room now too. I have a wall vinyl addiction right!
      And thanks!

  9. Yeah, they are close in age, but not in height LOL. Noa is on the shorter side like me.
    My daughter wants the dresser now. Maybe if it doesn’t sell I can use it in her room makeover. Thanks and have a great weekend too.

  10. Thanks Julia! I have been looking every where for something like this. I hope I can find it at my HomeGoods. I have seen online scented drawer liners (how cool is that) but it is never in any cool geometric patterns.

  11. You did SUCH a nice job with it! And I love the drawer liners…such an expected and lovely surprise. Almost makes putting away laundry fun lol

  12. Ooo beautiful! That gold heart is so unique. You’re an original, Julia, in the best possible way!

  18. This is so gorgeous, you’d never know how it started! Fabulous as always! Love this makeover!

  19. looks great! everything looks better with a little gold on it, right? And I’m loving that brass whale, too πŸ™‚

  20. Wait a second…….. my pc died and I have worked to get back on the internet……for my favorite blogs…………. so are you hinting that you might be expecting? I mean a changing table????? I know I am so severely behind in everything, but I thought I might just ask what ……. did I miss?

    1. Haha, no Sheryll…I sell the furniture in my etsy shop and I just want to give people and idea what to use it for.
