Wow! Your furniture is amazing! I love the green and white arches (Im on a green kick myself) on the wood.

Welcome to craftster by the way. I think that if you lurk around on the boards enough you will find a TON of inspiration. Just keep posting and Im sure you will learn a lot!

I agree:  you are doing a great job with your furniture decorating.  the pieces of furniture themselves are interesting, then you are adding a lot of interest and color with your painting.  Keep up the good work!

They look very neat. I love the geometricness of them.  Smiley

Have you had the pieces appraised by an antiques specialist first?  That dresser looks old.  I'd make sure I wasn't going to paint on something that could be a rare prized piece first.  Like on Antiques Roadshow, where you sometimes see people with pieces they've refinished, just to find out that had they not done so, the piece would have been worth thousands of dollars.  ^_^

Very nice! Really great pattern and it looks very professional.
Were the butterflies something you added on? Did you paint them too?
good job! Smiley
