Blue & White Waterfall Dresser

I know Fall is officially here but I have to share this beach inspired dresser.
My clients, Brett and Christine, bought a new house and were looking for a few pieces to add to their new digs.
They have a beach cottage style and asked me to transform this dresser to fit their style.
My clients usually tell me exactly what they want but Brett & Christine left this one all up to me.

I stripped the original paint and removed the veneer on two of the drawers.
In the Before picture you can see a decorative piece in the center of the top drawer. My clients wanted that removed so I popped it off and I love how it looks!
I primed (that's the white you see peeking through), painted with homemade chalk paint, sanded and sealed with wax.
The paint colors I used were Aspen Aura and Swiss Coffee by Behr.
I love Fall but this dresser already makes me miss Summer!
