Bohemian Bandana - it's her name and her style.
A hipster kind of girl.
Way back in February I bought this lingerie chest and had big plans for her.
I promptly took her apart.
Looked through March for four-inch pulls.
Finally filled in the holes and drilled a center hole.
Bought a jar of Waverly Truffle Chalk Paint.
Loved the rich brown.
Stuck the drawers back into the sanded white base and abandoned her into a dark corner of the living room.
By chance I placed a turquoise basket on top of her.
An AH-HA moment.
Painted the base a bright turquoise.
Loved the result.
But bare-naked drawers?
Found an over-sized paisley stencil at Tuesday Morning.
Used a craft paint in turquoise.
Now I can rarely just use a stencil and let it go.
I have to shadow the edges to make the design pop.
Used craft paint in pumpkin for the shadow color.
Found maple knobs in Horror Monster's hardware section.
Used Americana Decor Satin varnish.
I finished late in the day on Saturday.
The sun would not cooperate.
I tried to hide her in the shadow of a gigantic pine tree.
So please excuse the photos - they are worse than usual.
Definitely a boho chick.
The knobs are perfect.
Miss Peepers approved.
She is already in Booth W-10.
This cool chic chick will be getting a companion piece next week.
I am feeling my long-lost hippie girl vibe coming back.
Where are my tie-dye halter top and elephant bell jeans?
