The Wedding Dresser

My daughter-in-law texted me one day (her primary method of communication) and asked if I had a vintage table of some kind. Her younger sister was getting married and having a vintage wedding. They were having the wedding outdoors (in early May) and needed someplace for the minister to set the Bible.
I didn't have any old tables, but I had this lovely old dresser. With its pretty pink glass knobs, it was perfect. They loved it, but wanted it to be off white. So, I tried some home made chalk paint. I had not used the unsanded grout recipe before and decided to go with it. It worked great, but I didn't like how it set up like plaster, mix a new batch with each coat. I would love to hear the solution to that.

Well, it snowed here and the ground was a mess, so the wedding had to be moved indoors. There ended up not being enough room for the dresser since space was so tight, but her parents ended up buying it for her as a keepsake from her wedding. I love seeing young people who love vintage pieces as much as I do. Sorry for the poor quality picture, but the weather was not cooperating to get it outside in the daylight!

I also made a blanket and Bumbo cover for the flower girls. Since my granddaughter still needs a little help sitting up and her cousin set behind her.
My darling grandson was the ring bearer, dressed like a little newsboy. And my daughter in law was a bridesmaid. It was truly a vintage wedding in an old converted barn. Really cool place!

As you can see in the background, they were feeding the cake to each other, while I was taking pictures of my kids, whoops.
