I am touched that a daughter choose one of my dressers for her mother and had me paint it to compliment some beautiful fabrics from their native country.  My mother has been gone for 7 years but I am surrounded by her gifts of furniture and decor in my home and now this mother will live amongst her daughter’s gifts

The paint “restrained gold” is a perfect accent for the fabrics that will adorn her room, but hopefully she won’t think it is yellow as that is her least favorite color.

 

Although the mirror resides above the dresser, I opted not to reattach it for the photos since it will be picked up in a day.

 French Provincial hardware has great detail and visual interest.
