Eulalie’s Sky With a Silver Lining | Antique Chest of Drawers


November 25, 2015 by Terry


I am sharing with you today my latest favourite!  This little piece turned out so pretty.  It has been a while since I have used MMS Eulalie’s Sky on anything and after this piece, I am not sure what took me so long in doing so!


I decided that it should have a little ‘fancy’ so I decided to give it metallic silver accents.  I think the Mercury Glass hardware tie in perfectly with the silver accents on the legs and wood decals.

Here is the before shot of it …. I sanded down the layers, and layers of paint off the top in order to reveal the beautiful wood top.


The top got a light coat of a custom mixed stain I created out of other stains I already had.  The rest was painted and waxed with both clear and antiquing wax.  Initially I had not used bonding agent but it did over chip a bit, so I went over those areas with more paint with bonding agent added.  The metallic painted areas also got a coat of antiquing wax to tone down the ‘newness’ of the metallic paint.


Yes… that’s one of my wedding photos… :0) …. oh the pre babies body … where are you now?  ha ha


I had so much fun trying out different ways to display it and I had so much help from my tiny props girl precious!  … always helping ;) making sure every bead is in place!


I picked up these pretty light shades a while back from an antique shop, now I just need to find the right base for them.  They remind me of a hat.


This sweet dresser is also going to The Little Deer Market on December 5  ... secretly hoping it doesn’t sell ;)




Making Broken Beautiful goes live tomorrow!  I am ‘breaking’ all my rules this week and anything Christmas goes!  Make sure you link up and share your Christmas inspirations!!

    Oh Terry! That has to be one of my favorites this far!!! So so pretty! And your staging is so fun too. That square wreath! Did you make it! I love it!!

    Just overall gorgeous inspiration, since I can’t just hop on over to Canada to buy it! :)


    • Terry says:

      Thank you Cheryl! This is one of my favourites too I think. The square wreath was a purchase I made 3 years ago at Homesense. It actually was a Christmas wreath but I removed all the Christmas stuff from it to make it work all year long. It has lost so much of the boxwood though from all the dusting … okay, I lied… I don’t actually dust it … just sometimes … but not on purpose! lol wow! did I just ramble or what? I thank you for the wonderful compliments and I hope you have a great day!

    Perfect! The color is beautiful & I love the silver accent!


  3. The chest of drawers turned out beautifully. I don’t blame you for wanting to keep it. I think it will fly to the door.


  4. Maxine says:

    Terry, Just love this piece and colour!! I just adore the way you used the metallic paint and dark patina…. Thanks so much for sharing!!

    It’s a lovely dresser!!!


  6. Oh my goodness Terry, perfection! First, I LOVE the color and the custom stain color works beautifully together. Adding the metallics with dark wax just takes this gorgeous dresser up several notches. I suspect your wish of it not selling is NOT going to happen. I need to take a drive one day to The Little Deer Market.


    • Terry says:

      I would probably pee my pants if you did come! … I’m such a fan! I love that metallics are in right now … they add so much to a piece if used tastefully! Thank you also for the follow… honored!


  7. Oh my I absolutely love this! Eulalie’s is one of my favourite colours and it just looks so beautiful with the silver accents. What a perfect colour for such a gorgeous dresser! Hugs, Lisa

The other day I let my daughter drive us home after being away. I was absolutely exhausted from life in general. This was the view from my passenger window... a beautiful reminder to slow down and listen to God’s whispers... He’s got this. #listentothewhispers #godsgotthis #bestillandknow #thatstillsmallvoice #heismystrength

Happy Monday friends! I know I haven’t posted anything for quite some time but as I sit here this evening I feel it’s time to share a bit more of what has been happening for the last few months. Most of you don’t know this but for the last 11 months I have been slowly learning the technical side of my family’s business. For the past 43 years my parents have invested their blood sweat and tears making our family business such a huge success. (@globefootwearltd ) I am privileged and honoured to be able to carry that on for them. 11 months ago I took a leap of faith and left everything I was comfortable with to come and carry on our family heritage. Our children were brave enough to leave their friends and their school in order to support their mom in keeping the family heritage alive. Today I am proud to say that while I still have much to learn, I am happy that we took that leap. It truly is an amazing journey and a hard (at times challenging) one at that… But with God’s grace and strength we will carry through for continued success! God is good! I’m still loving furniture makeovers and when I can, I still enjoy DIY and sharing what I make… But for now… I have to take a step back from that part of my life and focus on what is before me. I hope you will stay, and follow along in my journey. We have a new home where we are and are wanting to put our style mark on it… I know there are a few stencilling projects in our future ;-) I will share more with you soon. You can follow along on my business journey too at @globefootwearltd ❤️😊 #newlife #newfriends #newbusiness #newadventures #shoestore #familybusiness #heritage #myheritage #godisgood #strengh #godsgrace #globefootwearltd
