Calling all cowboys and girls are you ready to "rustle up" and "rope in" such a bold piece!  This beautiful vintage three drawer mahogany dresser came to me by way of a local thrift store and just spoke to that inner cowgirl in me.  The entire piece was painted using a combination of blending and dry-brushing techniques and various rustic shades of greens, golds and wheats to accent  and really showcase the amazingly rich hues of this poster.  The beautiful grain was sanded down, stained and restored to her former glory.  I loved every bit of putting this project together. This piece dares you to take a risk and make a bold statement.
