French Nightstands Custom Painted Butter Cream....


This was furnished and custom painted for our repeat customer.  She wanted some 
nightstands that where french.  She seen I had some back in February of 
this year and painted them for someone, loved them and wanted some.
 So as I tell all who ask about if I have any pieces they are looking for,
I let them know that I will put them on a waiting list and
if I get any in I will contact that list 1st before I list them
out to the public :)
That's what she did.  
So she wanted them stained on top to match a dresser she bought from me that 
I painted last year.  Painted a Butter Cream.
Then distressed only on edges and handles black.

This was before....a thick latex over factory paint...


we stripped....





then I primed and painted away....distressed...



she wanted a butter cream color....


stained the top 2 different colors.....


then added black wax....


to darken them...and protect them...
this is a thick wax that hardens FAST...


painted the handles black...











Finished!  Oh my gosh, they look awesome!
LOVE them!!!!

Antique Highboy Chest Painted White with Black......

I had this for along time now and finally had some time to paint it.
  I painted worked on this while waiting for another piece 
that was a custom order to finish being
prepped for me to paint it.

This is the before...


this is the sanded down and repaired part...


I peeled off the veneer on the bottom instead of repairing it,
glued the rest down so it wouldn't
continue to peel...
I wanted this to look like a old piece...
then repaired the top part because it's the top!
That needs to look good!


Then I painted it black,  then primed it white, and
then painted it white....


distressed the edges so the black could come threw...


painted the handles black...








Here it is finished!  Looks really pretty I think :)
