This peacock dresser makes my heart beat fast when I look at it! I am so pleased with how it turned out! It is glamorous, funky, artistic and a little bit yummy to me! But this result came AFTER a few SNAFUS along the way…….

Even the best of plans tend to go wonky! Watch this short video for a peak into one of my MANY “what the heck do I do now” moments…….
And THIS is the result!
It is still unexpectedly placed in the design with the wrap-around feature. The colors in the peacock dresser do not blend in ANY way with the leopard or the hot pink…..yet it seems to work!!!
The vibrant colors came alive even MORE with a heavy distressing….which allowed the black from the underlying “BLOB” to peak through adding depth and richness.
I have been asked many times how I paint a leopard pattern. I have included a short video here showing you step by step how simple this pattern is!
Here is another quick video showing the layering technique of the gel stain over the paint….and the difference it makes in the finish.
Thank you for being here….and happy painting! If you’d love to shop my favorite paint products, check out my Amazon Influencer list here.
