Custom Painted French Kent Coffey in a Teal Green with Gold Detail........

This was a custom order for a new customer.  She found
 this french kent coffey and asked 
me to paint it in a teal green with gold detail 
where the gold detail already was.  Basically paint the cream a teal green and 
redo the gold but, keep
the hardware the same.



So we stripped it completely to the bare wood like we do mostly all 
our pieces....





Then primed it....











Then painted it the teal green....


painted the gold detail...

















Looks so beautiful !  I thought the gold was going to be
 too much with the teal but,
she wanted it with some glam.  
It looks awesome not too much gold at all !
Just enough :)

French Provincial Dixie Triple Dresser Paint Job.....

This was a furnished and custom painted french provincial dixie dresser for one of our new customers :)  When we got this in she looked like this.  Looks like whoever had this tried to sand it down but didn't finsih the job.  So we did!  Sanded down to the wood completely.  Thats how we do it.  No semi sanding we take everything off.  Fixed the drawer as some didn't close properly.



Then we primed it....then painted it with multiple coats of paint...


sealed it of course...love our flat finish ....



painted the handles silver...



she wanted a grey teal color....



Here it is finished!
It's looks so beautiful :)

Ornate Puzzle Design Highboy Painted White.....

So this was a furnished and custom order piece.  I had this one for awhile although I kept forgetting to put it in my unfinished album :) So one of our new buyers seen it in my storage when she was coming to drop off some pieces she wanted me to paint for her.  She had found me on the internet and seen my work.  She said we where amazing!  She is so awesome :)  Anyways, she seen this one and wanted it.  She said to paint it all white no distressing.
Here is was before drawers where not in the right order...
so we sanded down and primed it....


polished the handles and painted it white with multiple coats....




so I sent her a picture as I always do after I'm done...
I said if she was sure on no distressing
I think it would look good distressed with
all the ornate drawers it had.....


she said go for it and distress it
so I did....



it looks so much better I think...







the handles are so gorgeous!


she loved it!



This is it done and distressed :)

Looks beautiful!
