Multi-Color Butterfly Dresser

By Mychelle Fitzgerald, Creative Director at My Furniture Creations in San Bruno, CA.

The design for this dresser started with the patina butterfly handles.  This once dark brown antique dresser had seen better days but still had good bones so I decided to give it a Casual Coastal makeover. I started by painting an ombre style to lighten up the dark stain.  I used GF Patina Green and just kept adding Antique White until I got 4 beautiful shades of Green on the drawers.  I used a Coastal Blue and Persian Blue on the body of the dreser.
