Waterfall Dresser painted in Laurentien

This dresser just couldn't decide what color it was going to wear.  I didn't have a vision for it when I bought it.  I started painting it with a coat of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Tricycle red.  Then I decided I would do a hemp oil resist and paint the final coat in Kitchen Scale.  Going for a two-toned, chippy look of Tricycle and Kitchen Scale.  But that didn't feel right either.  It sat in my living room unfinished for nearly 4 months! Gah!

While in Wisconsin for a Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint retailer training at The Ironstone Nest, I picked up a can of Homestead House Paint Company's acrylic furniture paint in Laurentien.  (Side note:  Homestead House is the manufacturer for Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint.)

Laurentien is a beautiful, soft, minty-turquoise.  It looks different in different lighting.  I was really itching to try this paint, so I pulled out the waterfall dresser and got to work.  Wow! This color was made for that dresser!

I loved the original pulls on it, but they were showing their age and needed a little update.  They received a coat of Rust-Oleum's Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Is it bad that I really want to keep it?  I'd be in trouble if I kept every piece I love...and that's many!  So, this one is for sale.
