Artists Inspire Artists!

Yabette’s newest completed project is now available for purchase at Swankety Swank! It is a combination of hand painted dresser and hutch.

It was inspired by Nieves, the creator of SF Weekly’s Best of the Bay Skincare Line 2010 called By Nieves! We carry her gorgeous hand made organic products that epitomize the Swankety Swank motto of “Honoring Beauty, Earth, and Age.”

The dresser and hutch have been refinished with mossy green, leaving as much of the original maple wood as possible, still enhancing the aged beauty. The top crest and bottom doors feature detailed, hand painted Columbine flowers in hues of green and lavender. Nieves is like a Columbine- which although delicate, is a hardy flowering plant!

I love the beautiful, hand painted flower detail on the top section…..

As well as the larger flowers painted on each of the doors.

This piece comes in 2 parts for easy moving and placement. It measures 58″W x 74″H x 19″D and the dresser has 5 drawers with two cubby spaces with shelves behind the doors.

It is a beautiful wood specimen of art and function. This signed art piece will add cozy mountain country to your city loft bedroom, living room or dining room!
