What if you could fix it up?

The construction and lines are there. How about the color and hardware? Yawining? Yeah, me too.  Four letters... D.R.A.B. And although I love the existing gold trim, in my personal opinion there was a little too much of it. We are bordering on goddy.

My plan? I'll keep the gold lines along the drawers of the dresser and on the legs and feet of both pieces and I would add some gold back to the hardware. Everything else would disappear in a silky smooth layer of turquoise.

Before you ask about the color I have to apologize. I don't have exact measurements for this turquoise hue. It was a little bit of trial and error on this project by dumping in a little Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in Florence, Provence and Aubusson Blue and giving it a good mix. These pieces were finished off with both clear and dark wax. A little bit of paint went along way for these pieces.
