2016 Design Challenge Entry - Pro Upcycled Furniture
"Layers is what it's all about with this dresser, tearing away at half dried paint with duct tape and sanding to reveal the colours underneath. Using a patterned roller to detail the inside of the drawers. Patina Green is the most amazing colour and can look completely different in varying lighting states. Sometimes it's hard to see pieces go to their new home and this one was definitely one of those!"

"I've always had a passion for art and love transforming pieces into just that. Art. My 13 year old daughter picked out 4 colors. Yes, 4. lol Why wouldn't a 13 year old do anything less. I was able to transform this gorgeous antique chest of drawers into a beatufiul work of art for her on her 13th birthday. To say she LOVES it is an understatement. "
