Blended beauty

By Kristy Chorostecki at Dandelion Designs in Belvidere, IL.

It's not very often I have good luck in auctions.  As a Mama to 5 kids ages 12 and under, I don't have much time to stand around all day at an auction waiting for a great deal, which is why I was thrilled to find an online auction house near me.  My very first bid was on this beautiful dresser.  Sure, it had it's flaws and didn't look like much in the picture, but I could see the potential....and I'm glad I was the only one, I got it for a steal!  

If you have ever been to Northern Illinois in January, you know it's not very fun.  It's very cold.  And windy.  Like, the wind hurts your face kind of cold.  Because I won this in January, this one was painted in my kitchen.  Yes, with those 5 kids running around along with the was a challenge.  But there was a vision.  A vision of blended blues and red.  Distressing and just a touch of drippy goodness was to go onto this beautiful dresser.  A combination of Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis paints created this beautiful boho love.
