I have been going through some old pictures of past projects I never posted on the blog (mainly because they were pieces I didn’t have a chance to take a good photograph of), but I thought I would share them over the next few days.
I completely forgot about this piece I painted over this past summer. I only had a chance to take a quick cell phone shot of it while I was at a tent sale unfortunately, but it was one of my favorite pieces. I wish I was able to take a picture of it with my good camera so you could see the details.
I painted the piece with my homemade white chalk paint, and the drawers were painted in Annie Sloan’s Paris Gray. The hardware was originally silver, so I spray painted them with an oil rubbed bronze finish. I love the contrast against the light paint! I slighty distressed the edges of the drawers, along with parts of the white frame. The original dresser was an espresso color, so that color peeks through the distressed marks, and really makes the light paint stand out.
This was one of those pieces I wish I could have kept, either for a dresser or even a TV stand. It did find a new home, however, to a family in New Jersey!
