Louvered Door Dresser


My sister, Emily,  moved to the charming town of Pacific Grove, which if you remember,  is the place I got my start in the furniture-selling business at Blessings Boutique.  It is a picturesque, seaside town filled with shops and victorians overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Monterey Bay.  I drive around the bay weekly to see my sister and nephews.  I cannot resist sharing this adorable picture my sister took of me holding her youngest, Ezra, at the beach.  


We have a bit of a weekly ritual while I am visiting PG.  First, we meet at Happy Girl Kitchen for an organic coffee or refreshing kombucha. Then, while Emily's older boys are still in school, we like to go to sushi at the freshest and bestest of sushi restaurants around: Crystal Fish.  Next we hit the plethora of thrift shops in the area.  We finish up the day by picking the nephews up from school, going to the beach, and getting delicious organic ice cream from Kai Lee Creamery.  

I found this vintage dresser at one of the thrift shops in Pacific Grove.  I was drawn to the lovely, louvered doors.




I painted the dresser with one coat of Old Ochre Chalk Paint®.  


I replaced the old hardware with these adorable, distressed bird pulls that can be purchased at Emily's and my online shop:  www.relovedliving.com.


Little birdies!


I sanded the dresser heavily, especially the louvered doors, to make them look like old shutters. Chalk Paint® distesses so nicely with 220 grit sandpaper and it was easy to get to the wood because I only used one coat of paint.

I love those louvered doors! So pretty, and the paint job made a worlds of difference! I love going into thrift shops and finding unique pieces like this. :)
