Take these broken wings and learn to fly

By Kristy Chorostecki at Dandelion Designs in Belvidere, IL.

I found this dresser online and I could see the potential beneath the stickers...all over this beauty.  Years of kids making their "masterpiece" one sticker at a time.  As soon as I got home and pulled it out of the van I got to work, I had a vision.  A vision of black.  A vision of simple sophistication. 

I couldn't help but have the Beatles classic Blackbird running through my head while painting this beauty.  What was once an ugly duckling is now a beautiful bird, just waiting for a chance to fly.
