Hello Cupcake

Actually, I think this latest dresser reminds me more of a girly layer cake.  I know this will STUN you, but I actually do have a before photo of the dresser.  Probably because it was one of the first pieces I went out and purchased specifically for the purpose of restyling and selling it.  Anyway, here it is in all it's former glory.
I never said it was a good photo, just that I actually had one.  I fell in love with it's chest on chest style, and the rather feminie wavy trim on the top.  To me it seemed like the frosting on a cupcake.  I'm guessing this piece dates back to the 40's or 50's, maybe early 60's.

This is a horrible photo, but I have to say I am just so swamped right now that I don't have time to stop and stage, or sometimes even move things outside for a phot.  See those legs in the background?  Those are projects waiting to go in the workshop.  So sorry, but here is Cupcake, or really Girly Layer Cake since I decided to add more frosting in between the drawers and on the bottom.  Wouldn't she be perfect for a nursery, or little girls room?

Here is a slightly better picture that shows her pale pink cuteness and creamy white frosting.  She is complete and will be for sale at The Prairie Pickers & Peddlers Market, Oct. 14 & 15.  Now I'm off to work on this...

and this pile...

So much to do, so little time!

Happy Hump Day!
