How to Create a Butterfly Chest

Pastels are not really my thing…..nor are butterflies….but they fell smack out of my soul this week as if I needed a good dose of both!

This little bombe chest was in my shop and already painted in neutrals. I just wasn’t feeling it and had pushed it aside days before. I looked through my stash of Redesign Furniture Transfers and came across this gorgeous butterfly print.

Watch my live video of this piece below.

How To:

I pulled a few colors from my Dixie Belle Paint shelves…..hurriedly applied a single coat of Apricot over the entire chest…..with just moments to spare before my LIVE video. THAT is the beauty of working with a quality chalk paint! It dries quickly and allows you to create layer upon layer with no cure time needed as you create!

I am so deeply moved by this butterfly bombe chest. It came to me unplanned…..without a vision……and very suddenly. Its as if it has been inside me just waiting for the opportunity to show itself!
