Greek Blue Dresser Turned Planter

Happy Friday, friends!

I’m working on a couple of posts for the weekend (one to share more about Troy Fest last week & one for lots of details about our upcoming Vintage Market), but I couldn’t help but show you one of our latest projects at the shop….

Isn’t that just fantastic??

Natalie suggested it, and man, was she right on…we took it to our friends at Terra Cotta here in town and they worked their magic on it.  I’m in LOVE with it!   We painted the piece in Greek Blue, by the way…man, am I in love with that color!

P.S.  We went with pots of flowers instead of placing potting soil directly in the drawers so a. we could move the flowers around as needed and b. the drawers wouldn’t rot.

Go find a yard sale dresser this weekend and do something creative with it…it’ll be a showstopper!

    that looks great. what topcoat did you use to leave it outside? i know wax melts in the summer heat so have resorted to poly for outside. any other good ones you know of?

      Hey Meg! With Chalk Paint, you leave outdoor pieces unwaxed or sealed…it will absorb water and dry back out…it’s wonderful for outdoor things! :-)

    Cute idea! I like the orange flowers against the blue paint.

    I just love the idea! I have a small front porch and I was wanting to do something different this year. How cute would that be? My front porch faces the East, has a huge Magnolia tree and is very shady. It would lend itself to shady plants such as ferns, impatiens, etc.

    eee! I am in love with this! I want to get a blue window awning, blue adirondack chairs and this to go in my backyard.

    I’ve seen solid wood dressers re-purposed in many different ways. People turn dressers into sideboards, buffets, nightstands, even media consoles. Yet, I’ve never seen them used like this before! I wonder if you are thinking of repainting to match the seasons?

    Love this very good use of an old chest into a flower bed!

    Love this piece (and thanks for the tip about leaving chalk painted items outside with no seal. I didn’t know that!)
