Aged Light Gray Chest.....

Had this in my inventory for since the summer
and decided to pull it and paint in my own design.

It's a high end chest of drawers made by white fine
company with a solid wood back nailed in.
Very solid structure and quality.  

I removed all the hardware and replaced it 
with new hardware.

I chose to do a light gray for the look I wanted ,
I custom mixed the color also.

I used chalk paint and sprayed it on 
no hand painting.

The hardware I wanted was something
 to bring out the piece, but not too
flashy or too plain.

I wanted to keep some of the clean lines which is why
I chose these handles.

I aged it but didn't distress it.

Super flat and smooth finish.  

I also painted the bottom metal sleeves
and the cabinet door hinges to match the
color of the hardware.

Painted all of the inside cabinet area.

I aged the inside also.

The middle slats are removable.

They just slide out.

The inside dividers on the 1st drawer are removable also.

Really happy with how it turned out!

Redesigned Dresser into a Aged Navy Look...

Well, since we had this mediterranean dresser for
a while I decided to paint it.  Although, while I was in the 
middle of added the feet a new client had contacted
me. She wanted the aged navy chest of drawers I had
did and was up for sale.  Then she wanted to know if I had
anything else in that color or similar color.  I didn't.
I told her I was in the middle of painting this one, 
I was currently adding some feet to it but, 
hadn't painted it yet.  
Here is the before below....

So, she asked if I could paint it in the navy look
like the chest she wanted.  I said yes of course!
She wanted the current hardware removed and 
replaced with the ones I added on the chest I had did 
that she was getting from me.

I sprayed it all in a custom navy I made with chalk paint.

Aged it with no distress.

Stripped the top before we painted it.
Repaired all the scratches and holes because that's
what she wanted on this one.

Painted the inside.

Sealed in all the holes from the previous hardware.
I added all the same hardware even to the middle
cabinet doors. It just looked so much better 
than knobs I was initially going to add.

Then, added the new hardware.

I love my finish!  It's a lot of work, but I don't mind.

She loved it!   I really love it!!!
