Diamonds are a girl's best friend

I loved doing this piece.  I had a vision that of a muted grey with a lovely diamond (harlequin) top.  I was inspired to use the diamond top by Crystal at THESHABBIESTCHICK and am so happy with the results.  

It has found its way as a feature piece in an expectant mother's nursery which makes me very happy.

I customed mixed the grey and used white ASCP for the diamonds.  I then gave everything a good distressing and a coat of clear wax.


  1. Gorgeous!! I love what you did with this dresser... it's so elegant looking.

  2. Thanks Cynthia, this one was a joy to work on, and the patina came up so well with the wax.

  3. Very nice, the diamonds on top must have taken a while to put on. Stenciled? Very pretty and well done. Happy Weekend

  4. Thank you, yes they did! I ordered a stencil offline, but when it arrive it only had 8 diamonds on it, I think in total I had to do it 16x, with two coats of paint each time. I didnt learn my lesson though, as Im toying with the idea of using it again. :)
