    I love the color combo on the dresser. Oh and once you spend more time with Donna you can impart that knowledge in a class. I finished my end table finally from the workshop. Still need to fine tune aka fix the mistakes. But I like it. I’ll send pics once done.

  2. Pam says:

    Karen – that turned out beautiful! Love the colors!
    What a great piece!

  3. Fran says:

  6. Jeanette Shaw says:

    I love her Karen!

  7. Rhea says:

    Love it! Your sense of humor is fab!!

  8. Turned out great Karen!

  9. Sandra Fiffy says:

    She’s a beauty!! Luv the color. I am working on a dresser that has loads of beautiful carving on it but she is missing that decorative piece that runs along the top/back. I will have to make her a new piece but I don’t mind because I got her very cheap( 20 bucks!!!) at a thrift shop. Of course she wouldn’t fit in my vehicle, had to go borrow a truck from a friend, blah,blah, blah, I’m sure you know how that goes!!!

  10. she is beautiful,I love the colors and oh those legs…….:)

  11. Just gorgeous! I’m lovin’ the two tone look oh so much….and I finally picked up some CeCe’s in Kentucky Mint 🙂 Anxious to give it a try.

  12. Jill Floryj says:

    I love her look from any angle! so beautiful. A store near me started carrying CeCe’s paint and I got some – so far though I like Annie’s better! Maybe just cause that is what i’m used to? The white CeCe’s made me feel like I was using latex paint again. Maybe I need to thin it a bit?

  13. Catherine says:

    She’s a beaute!
    I’d buy her if I was there!

  14. Cynthia says:

    Love this piece and I want it…LOL! The color is fantastic and I love the way you aged it and the details. Great work.


  15. Laverne is just gorgeous, Karen! Love the colors you went with. Her details are amazing. You are right, you just don’t see them in the before picture. Now they stand out and are just beautiful.

  16. this looks wonderful and i’m not even a blue person. great job.

  17. Tina says:

    Such a pretty girl, that Laverne.

  18. She’s gorgeous but missing her “L” on her chest!! Schlameil, Schlamazel …

  19. Katsy says:

    Oooolalaa! Laverne est tres belle! Are those hydrangeas from your backyard? Wowee, Karen! Je suis un peu jaloux!

  20. Bliss says:

    Oh Laverne, you are a far better name as a beautiful dresser than you ever would of been for a duck.

  21. Sandy Brown says:

    You did a beautiful job on this dresser–the color choices are perfect. Just love it. I also enjoyed your sense of humor–of course it doesn’t make her look fat 🙂

  22. Becky says:

    I have never tried CeCe Caldwell paint but I do use the ASCP. It is fun to see all the different painted furniture combinations out there and gather inspiration to bring life back in to an old beauty such as Laverne. She is beautiful and I think she knows it. ha.
    Have a great weekend.

  23. Heather says:

    LOVE IT! It’s so much fresher with its new coat of paint, and I love the colors you chose.

  24. This is so pretty! And one of your pics gave me an idea. I like how that chalkboard is hinged to the wall. I don’t know what’s going on with it, but it made me think maybe I can cover my wires from my flat screen AND still use my antique vanity as a console (the wires and plugs are exposed due to the open space below the middle drawer.

  25. Jeannie says:

    From plain Jane to Fab Laverne, beautiful!

  26. Laverne turned out awesome! I have a similar dresser I am working on and now I know how to paint it! BTW I just found your site and Iove it!

  27. Danielle says:

  30. Laverne is fabulous! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Patti@OldThingsNew

    Great colour combo. Have recently started working with CeCe and so far very pleased. I might have missed something but what colour did you do the drawers and what type of finish did you use ?

    • GTC says:

      Hi Cathy, I have been using CeCe Caldwells for two years now and I love it more every day. I find new ways to use it all the time, so glad you are enjoying it! The colors are in the post, I mixed some of the blues. Thanks for stopping by.
