Stenciled Mini Dresser & A Feather Box

On Monday I shared a little blue side table with stripes and today is a small dresser that also could be great for a bed side table that I actually painted a long time ago. I started with a yellow color that was given to me by Dutch Boy....and I really didn't like the shade. So it sat for a while. Then I decided to stenciled the drawer fronts using a dark gray. It still sat for some time. 
It was just one of those pieces I was not sure about.

 I finally decided to distress the piece and add antiquing stain.

 I then painted some wood knobs

Now its in the shop space at Crompton. I guess I just wanted to get it out of my workshop since I'm going to need all the room for painting large pieces for the vintage bazaar. I do like the way it looks know, much better then before. I also could not find any before photos, and to be honest I can't even remember what it looked like. 

Lastly I painted this pin box with leather hinges in a  pretty blue color that I can't remember the name but this is the first time I used it....I'm sure I'll paint it with something else and write down the name.

I found a image with drawings of feathers and that helped me create the feathers on the box. I used a pencil to outline and I used a mix of gray, black and white pant for the colors.

Here is the before 

 Here is a photo of my car packed with the blue table I shared Monday and the stenciled dresser, you can see the color has more warmth in it, which it does in different light.

 I will be sharing the next table soon...I'm also almost finish with the photos for our master bedroom redo which has basically been a year since I painted the room.
