Handpainted Scroll Dresser

You may remember Karin from Art Is Beauty making a mad dash to grab everything she could from a dumpster before it all met its end. This dresser was one of the things she salvaged. It was a bit of an eyesore but certainly not hopeless enough to be trashed.

Dumpster Dresser

Karin sanded her down and then applied a creamy concoction of white and dark chocolate paint. Lost on what should follow, Karin turned to her old accordion file folder for inspiration. There she found a vintage scroll design that she painted on the dresser with her projector and black craft paint. It’s the perfect finishing touch! The curves and flowing design soften up and add femininity to the straight lines of the dresser.
