Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to VIP Home!

Today on VIP Home, I would like to chat about a piece that sits close to home. It is a dresser that my Paw Riley made for my mom when she was little girl.  

My mom with her dad (Paw Riley) when she was in high school.

When I was little, the dresser was in my bedroom in its original, stained wood finish…(see photo below).

La! La! La! Check out this silly photo that my mom took of me when I was little--haha too funny! Also, check out the dresser in the back ground *wink*

A small peek at the dresser when it was in the living room of the Mississippi house. I always loved the way my mom decorated the top with her artwork. The bicycle wheel sculptures are some of my favorite!

A small peek at the dresser when it was in the living room of our Mississippi house. I always loved the way my mom decorated the top with her art pieces. Her bicycle wheel sculptures are my favorite–I currently have one hanging above my bed–y’all will have to stay tuned for that VIP Home blog *wink*

After being moved throughout several rooms in our Mississippi house, the beloved dresser finally found a home in the living room. While it was there, each person had his/her own drawer to do with what he/she pleased–to a certain degree, of course *wink* In my drawer, I had an assortment of Polly Pocket dolls and Play-Doh…Man, those were the days!

Now, the dresser resides in my bedroom at our house here in Birmingham. Mom and I repainted  it “Melody” by Behr Premium Plus Ultra. The dresser truly pops against the dark purple (“Lunar Shadow”  by Behr) walls. It looks FAB-U-LOUS!
