Antique Chest Of Drawers Soft Coral


We have had this antique chest
of drawers for awhile now.
I pulled it off of my as is for sale list
and decided to custom paint 
it my own way...
here is the before below...


We had repaired most of it before we 
put it up for as is sale, so
we sanded all down and filled in 
the carved design on the 4th drawer...



I primed it all and painted it a soft coral
by Ben Moore...


stained the middle drawers a mixture of stain colors...
sealed them with poly using my hvlp sprayer....




found some handles I had and sprayed them gold....



I also had these backplates and added them with some knobs
painted them gold....



stained the top with a mixture of stain colors
and then added poly with hvlp sprayer...


also added a wood applique I had and painted that gold....
just to bring out the chest as it was so plain...


Then added some wood wheels we had to give the old antique
look back...


solid wood old back.....very nice and sturdy...





I think it looks way better now.  With all I added, plus the colors, much better!

Mid Century Modern Gray Dresser


We got this mcm dresser in, it was way to damaged 
to put up as is.  So, we tackled it on right away.
Here is the before....


we stripped it down, repaired all the missing veneer 
added legs, then I primed it, and
custom painted it gray.....


polished the brass knobs...


and handles...


and the brass tips of the legs....





our smooth flat finish....


this is why I love latex paint, as long as 
you know how to prep it and lay it down,
then add a good protective sealer,
it comes out awesome!



Plus latex has such a variety of colors.....
and durable....















Beautiful and sleek!
Our finish is very durable with normal everyday use.
I've had repeat clients from 3 years ago
say the furniture we custom painted for them looks
as if we just finished it.
Benjamin Moore latex paint is our #1 paint we use.

Mediterranean Dresser Painted in Metallic Champagne & Gold....

This was a referral custom order.  One of our previous clients
loved my work on a dresser they purchased from us
and had us custom paint for them.  So, they referred me to their friend!



She showed me this picture and wanted me to match
the finish to the dresser she picked out from our inventory.
These are her nightstands,  I went over and looked at them 
in person at her house.
I just couldn't perfect that finish.  The colors and glaze/wax where 
everywhere on the color grid, along with a certain gold color I couldn't 
pinpoint.  



This is the dresser she picked out.....
so she asked what else I could do and 
I suggested a few combo ideas and 
she agreed on this one below!


we sanded it all down and added 4 feet that would
be similar to the nightstands....


Primed it all and painted it a mix of metallic colors
from Ralph Lauren and Modern Masters
for the body....


The mixture of the colors I did came 
out a champagne color....


Then I mixed some modern masters metallic golds to
come up with a perfect color 
of gold to detail it....



Stripped some of the hardware then added some gold 
in areas.....





Then, I aged it......























It came out perfect!  Matches well with her nightstands!
