Danity Navy Blue French Provincial Dresser with Custom Changing Topper.....

Well, to start off this was a tough one!  I had a customer pick this
piece from my inventory and ask
me to paint it a certain color for her.
So I told her to pick one from benjamin moore
as that is the only paint I like to use.
So she chose blueberry hill which is 
a danity not to dark navy blue color.

She also asked us to make her a changing topper,
as she seen one I had done before for another
customer.


Here is the before above....


we stripped it....


had white paint over factory paint...



built the changing topper to her size she wanted......


stripped the mirror....


then I stained it all....


she wanted it distressed on the edges only....


it was a white blonde wood, that's why I stained it
so when I did distressed it wouldn't look as white....



stained the changing topper also....


then painted it her color she wanted....


she wanted the handles to look old,
so we stripped them....


they turned out awesome!


distressed on edges....


I didn't prime this because of her color she chose,
if I did you would see the primer when I distressed....


since I stripped it though that paint is not 
going anywhere!


here it is without the changing topper...



here it is with the changing topper....



And here it is with all of it, 
dresser, mirror, and changing topper!

I LOVE IT!!!!!

Custom Painted Restroom Cabinets.....

 One of my repeat customers asked me
if I could paint her 
cabinets she was getting installed
in her bathroom.  She wanted a slightly aged look.
So we did :)
Here they are before unfinished raw wood...



I primed them and painted them an off white
creamy color.


Then we added the dark wax for the aged look...



Here they are finished!  She loved them and I did too :)
Thank you Kristina for thinking of us!

pull out the drawers easier..

Custom Painted Victorian Chair and Antique Vanity Desk.....

I have a awesome repeat customer who has 
just about furnished most of her home
with Piece Of Candy Furniture that 
we custom painted for her.
She had me paint her restroom cabinets for her 
also and said she wanted a 
dresser custom painted for her sons' room.
That will be posted in a couple of days.
Then she wanted the antique desk she seen in my inventory 
and wanted me to paint that for her.
Plus she wanted me to look for a girly chair
to go with it and added some fabric to it.



So this is the chair I found for her she loved it.


So we sanded it down...



then primed it....



then painted it the off white to match her 
previous dresser we furnished and custom 
painted for her....





added the fabric she picked out...


she also wanted it lightly distressed....



I am like totally in love with this chair!


Next we did the antique dressing vanity desk
here is the before picture....



stripped it down, it had 3 different colors on it!



Primed it....



then painted it with the off white color...



distressed it lightly...






Here they both are finished!
So gorgeous!
