I had been wanting an old bureau to plant flowers in. This has been something I've wanted to do for a while and I love the way it came out. The piece is in pretty bad shape but is perfect for this. It was painted the green and somewhat distressed. So I asked my husband to really sand it, take it right down to the wood in some places. You can tell it's been painted a couple of times - there is even a pale pink that shows through on the sides!
All I had to do was add flowers - I even left the flowers in the pots they came in - so easy and so pretty.
