empire dresser in Ironstone and Luckett's Green

I've been sitting on this dresser for about 3 weeks now.  
I'm in hoarding mode right now as I am getting ready for The Farmhouse Show at the end of October, and some pretty exciting news!! -I am expanding at Aunt Bee's House!
If you follow me on Facebook, then you saw the announcement a couple weeks ago that I was moving out of Bella Hill.

A lot of people have been asking questions thinking that I'm being polite with my online response, but honestly, truly the answer is time.  It's a ton of work to keep multiple spaces stocked and maintained, and I just felt like it was time to focus on one location with everything else going on in my business and my life.

I still have tons of stuff though, and my current space at Aunt Bee's does limit me a bit with what I can fit in there.  
I'd really like to keep a regular rotation of dining sets in my space since they usually sell pretty well for me.  
I just haven't had the space to do that, and only have them available for shows typically.

So very soon, I will be in another spot in Aunt Bee's with more great stuff to share with you!
I'll keep you posted on my new space!  I'll still be in my current space, but adding an additional spot.

I'm pretty excited, because I will also have a small window to dress and I have been busy pinning all kinds of ideas to my Great Booth and Shop Staging board on Pinterest!!

Anyway, this dresser will be making it's way to you very soon!
I picked this up in one of my very favorite areas.  It was buried under a bunch of stuff, and I almost missed it!

I decided to do a custom mix color of Ironstone and Luckett's Green.  
It still looks like Luckett's Green but slightly lighter than LG alone.  
It chipped up beautifully!

The top got a light sanding and stained in General Finishes Antique Cherry.

I haven't done any fall decorating yet, so it was fun to pull a few fall-ish pieces together to stage for this shoot.

I just love mercury knobs with this style dresser and paint finish.  
It's like putting on little diamond stud earrings with a t-shirt, jeans, and boots.  
Just the right amount of bling.

I need to get one of the drawers fixed before I sell this one, but you can check my Facebook page to see when and where this one will be going!  

I'm getting super excited for The Farmhouse Show- I have some pretty amazing pieces right now in my garage.  
I have a tower of small tables and farm stools that is beginning to look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book.  
If it gets any higher, I won't be able to shut the garage door!

Mark your calendars!  

This is one of the best shows in the Willamette Valley and you will not be disappointed!!
I am also unveiling a new look for my show spaces.  
I decided it would be easier than trying to change up my look all the time.
Can't wait for you to see it!
