Hand Painted Funky, Whimsical Dresser with Large Studded Sides and Stripes, Diamonds and Swirls

whimsical hand painted black and white check dresser with studs
This is a dresser I painted with a fun, funky design.

before and after hand painted dresser
This is how it started.  My neighbors were moving and gave it to me.
The doors had a plastic "carved wood" panel on them but I had to rip that
off before I could even think about what I wanted to do,
so this pic is after I took the panels off.

hand painted diamond design
I painted the top in a yellow gold and cream diamond design.

funky hand painted dresser makeover
I've seen furniture with over sized "studs" on it and was recently
given brass knobs that someone was throwing away so...
I decided they would be perfect for my 'studs'.

I drilled holes in the side of the dresser to match the size of the knob post
and pounded them in with a rubber mallet, it was a tight fit so I didn't glue them in.
I added colorful mismatched glass knobs to complete the whimsy!

Thanks for taking a look at my painted dresser
