Twice Lovely~ Princess Chest~

This princess chest is one of my first projects I did back in 2011.

 *The beginning*

It was for my then-9year-old-daughter.
She picked the colors and I lovingly restored it
and she had been loving this chest ever since.



Now my daughter is 11 years old and she's more into cool colors.
Her favourite color is turquoise, not pink anymore...
So she decided she wanted me to paint another dresser ( in turquoise of course),
and let this one go :)

This had been used by a 9 year old, so I think it's only natural that
this chest had some nail polish spilled over and some candy stuck on it.
I decided to refinish her again, but this time,
I wanted to make her a little more grown up.

I decided to paint her top & front drawers white,
added some stencils on her,
and she is ready to be loved again :)

And the great thing is, she's already found a new home!!
Put it for sale today and she is on the way to her new home right now,
she'll live in the nursery with a baby girl who's due in June:)
